Subject: Walk by The Fenways

Despite reaching the #1 spot on both KQV and KDKA, and being on a label with national distribution (Imperial), "Walk" by the Fenways never cracked the Billboard Hot 100. Billboard did call them "Pittsburgh's answer to the Beatles" though. The Fenways had been a doowop vocal group, recording "Number One Song In The Country" with lyrics crafted from the titles of the hit songs of 1963. When the Beatles hit, they grew hair and picked up instruments and the new beat in a hurry. "Walk" certainly should have been a national hit, especially since the Fenways sound would hit big time later that year as uncredited backup on the Vogues "You're The One".
