Live  2007    The Lion Sleeps Tonight The Tokens first recorded The Lion Sleeps Tonight in 1961, they were all originally from Brooklyn NY and began singing together in 1955. One of the original members was Neil Sedaka, who left the group in 1957. First breaking onto the pop charts in 1961, THE TOKENS got back on the charts in the 1990s and were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall Of Fame in 2004. They continue to distinguish themselves with the second-longest chart span in the history of Rock & Roll. More than 30 years after the debut of their first big hit, "TONIGHT I FELL IN LOVE", they re-emerged on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart in August, 1994, following the re-release of their chart-topping single, "THE LION SLEEPS TONIGHT." Making the statistic even more impressive, the South African folk song "Wimoweh," which inspired THE TOKENSí song that went to #1 worldwide, first charted 42 years earlier. No other song title can claim that longevity.

Kelloggs Flying Superman Toy A very old Kellogg's TV commercial promoting a Superman toy that you can get if you collect the tokens. It sure didn't take much to make us happy back then did it?

How About Garden Opoly as a Christmas Present i recently had a chance to check out Garden-Opoly. This very fun version of Monopoly uses different breeds of plants instead of properties, with POISON IVY replacing MEDITERRANEAN AVE, and Orchids replacing BOARDWALK. Each player buys garden favorites, collects Clay Pots and trades them in for Greenhouses. Sounds easy enough - but add aphid infestation, water bills and a dandelion outbreak and it becomes a little more difficult... and a lot more fun! Each deed back contains interesting facts such as the appropriate climate, soil and watering for each plant, as well as, fun facts about origin, popularity and varieties. A player may even be elected president of the garden club (always wanted to be famous)... or may be WEEDING, and out of the game for three turns! The custom pewter tokens are: a hand trowel, garden clog, garden gnome, wheel barrow and ladybug...i'm the clog...can't keep my shoes on!

Hes In Town  - The Rockin Berries The Rockin' Berries was a "Brumbeat group" from Birmingham, England, which by the early 60's ended up having two lead singers. One was Geoff Turton, who later went on to a solo career, then calling himself: Jefferson. But while still with the Rockin' Berries, they were heard by an American record producer who suggested they cover a Carole King Gerry Goffin song recently released by the Tokens "He's In Town". The Rockin' Berries version is very similar to that from The Tokens, and a favorite I really haven't chosen yet. In England, The Rockin' Berries actually had a greater hit with their version, Number 3 than did The Tokens in the States, Number 43. Look for their version under The Tokens.

Hes In Town - The Tokens In addition to their big Hit, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, The Tokens recorded several other Hits. This one - another great Carole King-Gerry Goffin song - He's In Town - was also covered by an English group - The Rockin' Berries. Check their version out under The Rockin' Berries; they're awfully similar in sound and both versions are swell.
