    Biography :

    Carl Petress and the Unique Teens had a great two sided record in 1958. "Jeannie" got most of the play.  WMGM 1050 in New York showed it on their last quarter of 1958 charts for a total of nine weeks. Other east coast stations also ran it up and down their surveys too. Ivy was the first issue, and the label was based in New York.

    It really had just a few records before folding up. Hanover, also based in New York, on the other hand, must have purchased this one from Ivy and issued it themselves. None of the other Ivy discs show up in the Hanover catalog. Hanover produced a sizable amount of records, and I always felt they produced "Fun" records that were enjoyable and covered many different styles. The Unique Teens' 'Jeannie' in New York where it went R&B Top Five, December 1958.. The Bronx quintet made one other record, on another New York label, Dynamic.
