The Mid-Knighters on Paragon were from Milwaukee: Jimmy Rosetti, Keith Dreher (1944-73), Charlie & Mel Lewandowski & Bill Hakow, later member Johnny Verbraken. They had a previous 45 on Key. Rosetti is still active in music
The 1st version of Charlena that I’m aware of was in Jan 1961 by the Sevilles (charted for 5 wks in Billboard, peaking at #84). It was written by members of the Jaguars & I believe the 2 groups were friends.
According to Marv Goldberg, the Sevilles 45 came out in 11/60: http://www.uncamarvy.com/Paramounts/paramounts.html
Thanks for the location info and the gms.
Both the Mid-Knights and Mid-Knighters did cover version of the Seville charter.
