    In June 1959, they recorded "Chick-A-Dee" and "I'm Lonesome For You," which were released on Eve Dodds' Esta label (out of Hamilton, Ohio) in July. Syd Nathan (Federal label Owner, a King Records subsidiary) got the Escos to record for him. The quartet recorded a handful of singles for the Federal subsidiary label from 1960 to 1963.
