With Neil on lead and armed with two Sedaka and Howie Greenfield songs, "While I Dream" and "I Love My Baby," the group earned themselves a single on Morty Craft's Melba label.


    Before the release, they chose the name the Tokens, not from the famous subway coin, but from the phrase "token of affection. When while i dream failed, Rablkin went off to college.
