    Biography :

    A hit is a hit, however small and fleeting. Susan Leslie and her singing friend Libby Redwine were in extremely good company when they debuted on the final Hot 100 in 1962. Other newcomers to the list that week included Paul & Paula, Sandy Stewart, the Rebels, Ned Miller and the Chrystals, all of whom were destined for the top 20 and beyond.

    Alas the youthful Los Angeles based duo was to stall at lowly #84 during their month on the charts with their Era records 45, "Little Tin Soldiers". The label's 1968 reissue of The Toy Dolls' tremulous treasure found fewer takers. Still, as someone once said, a little bit of something beats o whole lot of nothing. Susan and Libby had made their debut the year before on the same label with "(He Had) Pretty Eyes" b/w "Bye, Bye, Bye " under the name of Libby & Sue.
