One of the most successful trios in the early Rock N Roll era was the Fleetwoods. Their mellow sound stood out from the heavy guitars, driving drums, and wailing sax sounds of their contemporaries. Their first single “Come Softly To Me” hit # 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1959. They hit # 1 again that same year with “Mr. Blue,” making them the first group to have two #1 hits on Billboard in the same year. The “Mr. Blue” 45 can fetch $40.00.The “Mr. Blue” album, released on Dolton records in 1959, is worth up to $150.00 today.
