Their first single was re-released in 1960 by Jerry Blaine’s(owner of Josie) son,Steve, in his label Port Records.

Collectors say they were five white guys (perhaps mixed) with a black R&B sound.

The mystery continue...

In 1959 Josie released three singles by a white group named The Teardrops...
