Album: Little StarReleased: 1958Charted:
This was the only hit for this Staten Island group. They adopted the name after a member saw a billboard ad for Schenley's Whiskey -- the ad had the phrase "liquor of elegance."
Group members Arnold Venosa and Vito Picone came up with this by adapting Mozart's "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" into a rock song.
This was the only #1 hit ever released by Apt Records. (thanks, Brad Wind - Miami, FL, for all above)
