This is a re-issue of Rego 1004 issued in 1956 as by the Teen-Tones (=the Mello-Harps on Tin Pan Alley),   The group story is told by Marv Goldberg HERE

Karen Records was owned by veteran music man Sam Wigler,  who managed (or worked with) several pubberies (Ford, Jewel, Encore, Pollsam, Mellin Music..).  The Rego label was also perhaps his own.   Last release on the obscure Rego label was possibly #306 (Cal Starr backed by the Anita Kerr Singers : Yes, I'm Robbin' the Craddle)
