Santa Monica, CA (May 24, 2007)–Fabian and Frankie Avalon, two of the most popular teen idols of the 50s and 60s, will soon have new digital releases of their hits, as well as unreleased tracks which have been in storage since the original recordings were made. Restoration and archiving to digital was done by Bruce Maddocks’ Cups ‘N Strings Studios.

Digital Music Group is looking forward to releasing these tracks as remastered digital files for distribution at online music stores iTunes, Real, and Napster as well as through top mobile audio channels such as Helio and Moderati.”
