Half A Hit?

Now just how can you have 1/2 of a Hit Record?
Well in 1958 that happened!

1   So Tough by the Casuals

2.  So Tough by the Kuf-Linx

In one of those strange stories of music history.  “The Casuals” found themselves with 1/2 a hit record.  They came from the New York area and their version of “So Tough” was a hit on the East Coast.  Now at the same time “The Kuf-Linx” had a hit on the West Coast.  The Casuals made it to #42 and The Kuf-Linx to #76.  I purchased the Casuals version in 1958.
