    RELEASED IN 1963 BY THE 'MAJORS' WHO STOLE THE 'TRA LA LA' CHORUS FROM THE 'MAGNIFICENT FOUR'S' 1961 RECORDING OF 'THE CLOSER YOU ARE'. LISTEN CLOSELY AND IMMEDIATLEY RECOGNIZE THE REPEATED CHORUS THE MAJORS STOLE FOR THIS RECORD.

    Interesting because the lead does sounds alittle like the Majors lead in "Wonderful Dream" thank you PJ for those liner notes & facts.

    You are so right PJ. I should have looked up the info before posting as I learned there were 6 Major's groups. I almost always prefer a groups early to mid 50s tunes. Seems like in the late 50s and early 60s many groups changed their music style to appeal to a "broader" audience. :o)

    Different group. This is Ricky Cordo and The Majors from Philly. They started out as The Versatiles around 1960
