The A-side, “Twistin’ The Blues,” was a cover of Carl Perkins' 1956 song "Boppin' The Blues." The Tempos however changed some of the lyrics to include a reference to Chubby Checker.
The B-side, "Only One," was written by the group's leader, Ed Bundy. Other members of the group in 1961 included Rudy Alvarado, Fred Cisneros, Gus Anderson, Bob Norris.
By 1964, the group consisted of Ed Bundy (guitar), Dick Ister (guitar), Frankie Little (sax) and Dave Dettore (drums).
Ed Bundy and Frankie Little (Raging Storms) would later join the Castaways, who were also from the area. Bob Norris would join Angleo's Angels and was in several area bands in the years that followed, including Chicago Sweeps, Kronic Flux and Freedom.
