Subject: RE: The Poni-Tails - Born Too Late - 1958
Actually, Don Costa who was A&R chief for ABC Records, produced this. |
The song was written by Fred Tobias who had penned stuff for Elvis, Pat Boone, Nat "King" Cole, Perry Como and loads more.
Oddly enough, this was the B side of the record - the A side was "Come on Joey, Dance With Me," but DJs preferred the flip.
I think this was their only hit in the USA but they had a second hit in the UK with "Early To Bed" around 1959.
They must be the only group in history to turn down a major label when offered a second five-year contract.
They said they were simply fed up with the music business and wanted to go home to Ohio!
