Not to be confused with the band of the same name that rose to fame in the early 1960's, the original Tokens were a traditional doo-wop group who performed often in a-capella style. This Tokens recorded "Come Dance With Me" & "Doom Lang", originally for Gary Records owned by Herb Weiner. Herb Wiener has formed Gary Records with Gene Novello and Eddie Rosenberg. Herb is president and Novello and Rosenberg executive directors. Gary’s initial release, “Come Dance With Me” & "Doom Lang" by The Tokens, is selling steadily through an organization of 32 distribs. The Tokens who recorded  "The Lion Sleeps Tonight", The Tokens who recorded "Oh What A Night" & "Juanita" for Date Records as well as Johnny & The Tokens who released "The Taste Of A Tear" & "Never Till Now" on Warwick Records are separate groups.
