    Biography :

    In 1955, Dodd Hicks enlisted in the U.S. Air Force , and the remaining Cashmeres' trio added lead Grover Mitchell, signing to the Herald label to release "Little Dream Girl" in mid-1956. The single quickly disappeared, and the group dissolved soon after.

    In the summer of 1957, Herald's Ember subsidiary issued "Hold It Close," credited to the heretofore unknown Marktones - in truth, the song was an unreleased leftover from the Cashmeres' "Little Dream Girl" session of a year earlier.
