The Original label is PELHAM & it states Little Sammy Rozzi & The Guys.(nothing about The Tones) It`s a black label with silver print.I think they are from THE BRONX because that`s where Pelham Bay is.
Thanks for your comment about the Pelham release. Scans I’ve seen match your description of the Pelham label, with a web search indicating a substantial value for it.
The Pelham 722 ’Christine’ has been resung with new BVs. The lead on both pressings is Little Sammy Rozzi. I have only heard one version of the flip and have no way of knowing which release it is from. On your copy, is it different than the Jaclyn version?
I changed the group’s location on ‘Little Sammy Rozzi & The Guys’, with a note to your comment.
There from south Philly. My cousin Sammy is the lead.
