    Biography :

    Connie Toole Owner of the label Theron Records,  recorded four sides: two on a vocal group, The Vals, "The Song of a Lover" and "Compensation Check." The record were released on Val Hutchinson's Unique Laboratories label, but the labels indicated that they were "Produced by Theron Record Company." According to Wilkerson of the Vals only 200 copies of each were pressed up, apparently to test the waters. When nothing happened the Vals record was dead. The mid-1950s doowop sound of the record made it too dated for 1961. Only five copies are still known to exist. The Vals  Billy Gibson (lead), David Wilkerson Jr.,Clarence Greene, Ernie Morris and William Taylor (bass) were used on one other Unique Laboratories release to back a singer named Vicki Johnson, but their support is anemic and of little interest to doowop fans.
