The Safaris: Two groups had this name, the first was a doo-wop group that recorded one of my favourites “Image of a Girl”. The instrumental group was a surf band out of LA that recorded “Surfer Joe” and moderate hit, then someone turned it over and “Wipe Out” was born. Although a one hit wonder, it is still requested today. My daughter Shannon, loves this song and she was born in 74, Wipe Out was recorded in 63, go figure.
The Safaris – Wipe Out
Rock-a-Teens: A 6 man New York based group: This song is used in commercials today, but I cannot remember which ones, maybe you can.
