    Biography :

    Lou Smith (2d tenor), Joe Carvelli (baritone), Bernie Belkin (bass) . The Caslons initially got together in 1960 in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn as students at Madison High School. They made many local appearances and rehearsed a great deal. It was their manager/promoter Lou Stallman who wrote "Anniversary of Love."

      

    The Caslons recorded demo tapes and Stallman took them around to record companies for their review. Shortly after recording "Anniversary of Love" in Spring 1961, Bernie Belkin joined the Army, leaving the Caslons. Since most performances at the time werelip-synched, the group decided to remain a quartet.

    Late in 1961 , Amy Records released "For All We Know." Nothing happened with this release and Lou Smith decided to join the army. The Caslons' magic was gone and the group split.
