Formed in 1955 at Brooklyn's Abraham Lincoln High School, and known as the Linc-Tones, the group changed its name to the Tokens and included Neil Sedaka as an original member. In early 1961, The Tokens released a single for Warwick Records entitled "Tonight I Fell In Love," which went to #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and earned them an opportunity to appear on American Bandstand. The popularity that the band garnered as a result of this performance brought them new recording opportunities, culminating in their famous cover of Solomon Linda's "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" for the RCA Victor. Jay Siegel's characteristic lead vocals helped the song rise to #1 on the Billboard charts, where it remained for three weeks. Here is a great budget priced collection of their original hits.
