When Ron Post and Robert Brown were shipped back to Arizona, they circulated some of the recordings that they had made overseas.A local school teacher who wanted to get into the record business signed the group to a contract. When the rest of them got back to Arizona, they recorded_To Be/Hey Pretty Baby.
The record did fine on local stations and the group made many public appearances.Ron Post decided that he was going to go back to California and get into his father’s business. Robert Brown was still in the military. He was having personal problems, so eventually he was gone.Gene and Dan picked up Al Douglas.and they recorded as a complete black trio.
