(The Robins - a nice change of pace for an insane world . . sort of)

Not one of their better known or better selling singles, it's still a great track by this pioneering group. The Robins are synonymous with early rock n' roll and one of the best vocal groups to come out of that era.

"Out Of The Picture" was from a series of sessions the group cut in Los Angeles between late 1956 and early 1957 and was issued on Gene Norman's subsidiary label Whippett.

The 1950's were full of interesting things - not just Sputnik.
