THE HILLTOPPERS_Trying

One of the white pioneer groups. Although The Hilltoppers were a pop group of the time, their sound was more progressive than most of the pop groups of 1952. They were clearly influenced by the R&B groups of the time and actually became an inspiration of R&B/doo wop groups to come. This song was redone a handful of times by doo wop groups as were a handful of other Hilltoppers songs.
