They began to repeat, to occur locally and participates at some talent shows and soon had a recording contract with Capri records.

It launched the careers of many Texas artists and furthered the careers of artists such as Gene Summers, Gaylon Christie, Scotty McKay and Pat Minter.

The Mystics had a very big hit with an old Clyde McPhatter song called "Without Love". Tom Jones covered it several years later. Anyway, that song was # 2 in Houston, but was actually # 1 in California and several other states. After some months, Jerry Simmons leaves the band and was replaced by Clyde (Sonny) Jones, another H. Milby High School student that was part of another group, The Pastels.

" It’s All Over" b/w "You’re Gonna Love Me" were two local hits for Gary and Sonny in the area. With this new line-up, the group continue to produce two more years andrecorded "You'll Be There" b/w "What Happened To Saturday" for Kirk Rcords in Conroe.
