Did You Know?


The Weavers had already made the song "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" a folk staple in the 1950s. In 1961 The Tokens' recording went to #1 on the pop charts. Minor hits followed, with "He's In Town" in 1964, "I Hear the Trumpets Blow" in 1966, and "Portrait of My Love" in 1967. But they never had another big hit song. See more »
