Thanks Kurt. The original post referred to a Flo & Eddie boxed 
set. That got my curiosity up, though I suspect it was a mistake?

Hi Justin, I know your question has already been answered, but I feel inclined to share a little additional detail. Duane Eddy & the Rebelettes' "(Dance With The) Guitar Man" reached its Billboard chart peak of #12 on December 1st 1962. Lead vocals were by Darlene Love. At #11 on the Hot 100 that very same week, on its way down from #1, was "He's A Rebel" by the Crystals. The lead vocalist? Darlene Love. Further down, at #30, on its way up to #8, was "Zip-A-Dee Doo-Dah" by Bob B. Soxx & the Blue Jeans. Lead vocalists on this disc were Bobby Sheen and Darlene Love. On December 29th, these three tracks were joined in the Hot 100 by the Crystals' "He's Sure The Boy I Love" at #93, on its way up to an eventual #11. Once again, bringing the tally to four simultaneous hits, the lead vocalist was Darlene Love. Al Casey & the K-C-ettes' "Surfin' Hootenanny" peaked at #48 on the Billboard Hot 100 on August 17th 1963. Darlene Love was the lead vocalist. Four places higher, at #44, on its way up to #26 was "Wait 'Til My Bobby Gets Home" by Darlene Love. Mick Patrick (With "Joel Whitburn Presents The Billboard Hot 100 Charts" at his side. Insomnia has its uses, I guess.) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

In 2000, he appeared in the UK on the Solid Silver 60s revival package, with Gerry & the Pacemakers, the Searchers and the Swinging Blue Jeans. "Frozen Orange Juice", BTW, is one uplifting, sunshiney, optimistic and groovy record! (Yes, I like it!) Ian -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
