The Mystery Artists were a leading American vocal group of the late 1950s. All members were from the Bronx, New York City. The group formed when the famous lead singer (born July 18, 1939), joined with Carlo Mastrangelo, bass-baritone (born October 5, 1938), Fred Milano, second tenor (August 22, 1939 – January 1, 2012), and Angelo D’Aleo, first tenor (born February 3, 1940), in late 1957.
The group signed with Laurie Records in early 1958. The breakthrough came when their very first Laurie release, (the Mystery Song), reached No. 22 on the Billboard Top 100 charts, and they appeared for the first time on the nationally televised American Bandstand show, hosted by Dick Clark. The lead singer said of the group, “I’d give ’em sounds. I’d give ’em parts and stuff. That’s what (the Mystery Song) was about. We kind of invented this percussive rhythmic sound. If you listen to that song, everybody was doing something different. It was totally amazing. When I listen to it today, often times I think, ‘Man, those kids are talented’.

Was there ever a better song? Impeccable harmonizing. Thanx especially for this one.
Just want to say: I was a huge fan of Dion & The Belmonts when I was younger and still like there stuff. I sang 2 of his hits when I first started performing. After ducking the beer bottles and tomatoes I went on to others.
