  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn March 9th 1960, the Mystics performed "Hushabye"* on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
    Ten months earlier on May 25th, 1959 the song entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #81; and five weeks later on June 29th, 1959 it peaked at #20 {for 1 week} and spent 15 weeks on the Top 100...
    On the same 'Bandstand' show the Brooklyn quintet also performed their only other Top 100 record, "Don't Take the Stars", it entered the chart on October 19th, 1959 at #100, the following week it rose two positions to #98, and that was also its last week on the Top 100...
    Two slower covered versions of "Hushabye" made the Top 100 chart; Jay and the Americans {peaked at #62 in 1969 and #31 on the Adult Contemporary Tracks chart} and Robert John {reached #99 in 1972 and #70 in Canada}.
