    The Youngtones

    Johnny Marsi was a local "star" because of it. They also did sessions in the Brill Building, which led them to Big Top Records, who signed Marci and The Mates. The label went out of business but the 4 songs they cut did receive a fair amount of Airplay. All songs were written by Doc Pomus & Mort Shuman. They recorded later as Hans, Chris & Anderson and as The Cottonfields.
