They charted their biggest hit record in 1959 with their Doo-Wop classic…”SO FINE” on Old Town Records (1062). The single charted on March 23, 1959 on the Billboard R&B chart. The Fiestas hit became a #3 record on the chart, a spot it held for 5 weeks. The single remained on the chart for 19 weeks.
On April 6, 1959…SO FINE…crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100 and climbed the pop chart to #11. The single remained on the chart for 16 weeks. The flip-side of the 45rpm is…LAST NIGHT I DREAMED…it did not chart.
The Fiestas would not chart another Top 40 pop hit, but would have another Top 20 R&B hit in 1962 with their recording of…BROKEN HEART…a #18 hit single record. It would also chart at #81 on the Hot 100 and become the groups last hit record. The Fiestas would continue recording into the mid 1970s.
Till the next time—Joe
