    The Champs
    Extended Play CD

    The Champs were a driving rhythmic six-man unit voted the most promising instrumental group of the year in the 1958 Cash Box magazine poll.
    Best known for their classic 1958 Rock 'n' roll instrumental Tequila which was a US #1, and reached #5 in the UK.
    It all started in December 1957 at the Hollywood studios of Challenge Records.
    Six musicians, who had just completed the backing for a vocalist, were hanging around for a jam session.
    An interested observer was the label’s director of A&R, Joe Johnson.
    Johnson liked what he heard and his reaction to the boys was “you sure have something different and very commercial, you’re champs in my book”.
    He ordered a recording session three days later - and so The Champs were created.
