Lost or Forgotten Oldie of the Day 06/12/2019

A lot of lost or forgotten oldies really were one-hit wonders, and that includes today’s entry: Wishing For Your Love by the Voxtoppers. The group appears to have been made up of three Tamburo brothers and two of their friends and was initially based in New York City.

The single was released in the Spring of 1958 and fell off the charts after reaching #18.  The record was initially released on Amp Records and started its national run after Mercury Records bought up the record. They spent a total of eight weeks on the charts.

Little information about the group has survived, but I’ve tracked down at least four other singles they recorded for various labels over the next few years. None of their other recordings ever made the charts.

All that remains are a handful of scratchy records that avid collectors have found.
