*** In 1964, Tommy was asked by a local DJ to record a few songs for Snap, a tiny Michigan record label. One of those tunes was "Hanky Panky", which started to take off locally, but then quickly died, a victim of poor distribution. The song was soon forgotten, and eventually the group broke up. Sensing a hit, a local bootlegger taped the song off the radio and began pressing copies of it. Within ten days, more than eighty thousand copies had been sold. The Pittsburgh DJ finally tracked down Tommy James and informed him that his record was number one in the city. Tommy almost hung up on the guy, but a week later, he was in New York, selling the original master of "Hanky Panky" to 'Roulette Records'. By the late summer of 1966, it was the number one selling single in the nation
*** ▓ Dat geconstante "My Baby Does The Hanky Panky" gaat ontzettend snel vervelen !!! Buiten dat had de groep er toch een hitje mee in de Hollandse hitlijsten van ½ juli t/m ½ oktober 1966 !!! (NL Top 40: 12 wk / # 11) !!!
