In 1968 they where joined by Billy Jones who had been stationed in Germany for the US army and decided not to return back home. Before leaving his native country Oscar had local hits that where never recorded but put on tape at a local radio station. There's information that some of these recordings are now owned by a Suriname collector in Holland.
His first 45 was a hit called "T O P" in 1969 with the Twinkle Stars.
Todays song was his second hit and made it in many countries in Europe, South Africa, Indonesia, The Caribbean & South America. Oscar never made it in the US this song was released there but it failed.

Oscar is still performing and doing well.
I'll be doing a post on Billy Jones in the near future. He's got some great covers and originals on his 2 albums. Billy also co-wrote some songs with Oscar Harris.
