Nite Owl (1955)

Los Angeles raised Anthony Penia Allan cut one of the all time great 45s of doo-wop, "Nite Owl", at his first important recording session. It was immediately huge in L.A. and was about to break out nationally when Anthony decided to leave Specialty....and move to another label. Despite having a hit on its hands Specialty decided not to support the record....due to this the single never charted.
