Formed in the Bronx, New York, USA, the Ebb Tides (as they were originally called) featured classmates Antonio Nino Aiello (lead), Tony Delesio (baritone), Vinnie Drago (bass) and Rudy (tenor). Their recording debut, Franny Franny, came after meeting talent scout Murray Jacobs in 1957. By the end of the year they had extended their title to Nino And The Ebb Tides and transferred to Recorte Records. Their second single, Puppy Love, saw Delesio and Rudy replaced by Tony Imbimbo (baritone) and Ralph Bracco (tenor). This sold well in the New York area, but, like its successors, Im Confessin and Dont Look Around, it failed to make any national headway. In 1960 Tony DiBari replaced Bracco and the group moved to Marco Records. This resulted in only one single, Someday, before they joined Madison Records. Their first effort for Madison was a version of Those Oldies But Goodies...
