A6. My First Set Of Wheels. Written-By – Margo, Margo, Medress & Siegel. B1. Dirt Track Twister.

The Tokens reunited during 1975 for occasional weeks as singing regulars on the Adam Wade hosted game show Musical Chairs and in 1978 recorded a song for ABC's Schoolhouse Rock named "A Victim of Gravity". Brothers Mitch and Philip Margo continued to perform with new members Jay Leslie, Mike Johnson, and Noah Margo (one of Phil Margo's sons) playing drums. Siegel continues to perform with his own version of The Tokens as well, featuring bass singer Bill Reid and, more recently, John "Jay" Traynor, the original lead singer (before Jay Black) of Jay & the Americans and the Mystics. Siegel's son is also part of the group as keyboardist and occasional vocalist. John "Jay" Traynor died January 2, 2014, of liver cancer at a hospital in Tampa, Florida. Let's Go To The Drag Strip" b/w "Two Cars". Swing" b/w "A Girl Named Arlene" (Non-album track).

released Febuary 1964. I had always thought of the Tokens as one of the best Doo-Wop groups around during the very early 1960's. They had had many great songs but they were terribly underestimated at the time. Some of their repertoire included 'Arlene,' 'Please Write,' 'Tonight I Fell In Love,' 'Can't You Tell,' and of course ' The Lion Sleeps Tonight. But when I came across this album on Pipeline.

The Tokens are an American male doo-wop-style vocal group and record production company group from Brooklyn, New York. They are known best for their chart-topping 1961 single, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight". The group was formed in 1955 at Brooklyn's Abraham Lincoln High School, and was known first as The Linc-Tones. Originally featuring members Neil Sedaka, Hank Medress, Eddie Rabkin, and Cynthia Zolotin, Rabkin was replaced by Jay Siegel in 1956, and the band recorded its first single, "While I Dream" that same year.
