THE UNIQUES aka THE FOUR KINGS

Sam Stray has been writing songs since 1953, his very first song was called "SHE'S MY BABY"(YES SHE IS) his first group was formed in Linden Junior High. The members were Sammy, Ronald and Aonald West(TWINS)(Baritone,Bass), and their cousin Robert Cunningham(First Tenor, they were the first vocal group to use the name THE CUFF-LINKS.

Sam regrets to this day that they split up when they got to Linden High. That is where Sam met Wayne Tevlin, a great singer and fabulous guitarist. They inducted a classmate Richard (LUIGI) Soldo (Mr. Bassman) and first tenor Raymond Creapeau (Pitched for the Detroit Tigers)they called themselves The Uniques. They released several records from 1960-1964 on Bliss, Pride and Gone.
