The a-side, "Heart Stepping Stones," was written by Warren. The b-side, an instrumental track called "Redwing Bongo," was arranged by Warren and the group. Both songs were published by Poll-Bart Music of Glendale, CA which appears to have been the publishing company of country singer-songwriter Billy Barton.
In a March 30, 1960 article in the Wyoming (IL) Post Herald, Warren's single is mentioned as being released by B & B Enterprises. Again, this suggests a possible connection with Barton.
How exactly Warren and the Wildcats ended up being in business with Barton is however still a mystery. Curiously, another north-central Illinois group, the Nite-Caps from LaSalle, also released a single on Fire Records around the same time. Their single was produced by Barton.
