In 1956, Lincoln High School (Brooklyn) students Henry "Hank" Medress and Four Freshmen - inspired Neil Sedaka formed the Linc-Tones with Eddie Rabkin and Cynthia Zolotin. 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.
Sedaka went out on his own and Medress formed a new foursome called Darrell and the Oxfords with schoolmates Jay Siegel, Warren Schwartz and Fred Kalstein in 1958.
