PEANUT BUTTER (1961)
They were members of two other groups – Doo Wap – era: The Jayhawks & The Vibrations.
First they were The Jayhawks with a novelty hit: Stranded In The Jungle. Then in 1961 they changed name to be The Vibrations and released The Watusi, it was after this hit that in the same year they released Peanut Butter as The Marathons (Long before the chocolate bar, which had interestingly also changed its name to Snickers!).
