Glad to see Mike's comment . . . confirms that this really was what we were dancing to in that basement rec room in 1963

Good lead vocalist. Somewhat like The Jive Five.
If the guy acquired the masters and released this in '61, it would've been recorded earlier.
The Doo-Wop Revival was a year later, wasn't it?
