Amazon : The New Jersey sisters, Bea, Geri and Marge, (a.k.a. The Fontane Sisters) who backed the late great Perry Como on many of his late 1940s/early 1950s RCA Victor hits, came up with their first solo hit in 1951 when their version of The Tennessee Waltz reached # 20 in January.

dynoVoice : Variety: “The Toys are a pleasant group. Their harmonies are good and they have the feel of the youthful dances. The kids are individually good singers. They prove this by alternating the lead amongst themselves. However, their forte is still as an act, rather than a dance group.”
