the penguins

from the "Paul Buff presents the PAL and Original Sound studio archives, vol.7" liner notes by Greg Russo:
"Another early success for Frank Zappa was "Memories Of El Monte," which he co-wrote with Ray Collins for The Penguins. Zappa and Collins signed their publishing agreement for the song on August 23, 1962, but the record was not released until February 1963. Cleve Duncan was the only real Penguins member on board, but no matter. It's a well-known and classic song of the period."

from the "Paul Buff presents the PAL and Original Sound studio archives, vol.13" liner notes by Greg Russo:
"Frank Zappa's brief tinkering on the piano for "Love Of My Life" goes right into a stereo mix of The Penguins' "Memories Of El Monte," which of course Frank wrote with Ray Collins. Many people have not heard it in stereo, but here it is!"
