Description

"Wheels" is The String-A-Longs' biggest hit single, a success in 1961. Their debut release, it was issued in 1960. The tune peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the number 8 single of 1961 according to Billboard. The track reached number 8 in the UK Singles Chart. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc.

The tune was composed as "Tell the World" by Stephens and Torres of the String-A-Longs, who were then called the Leen Teens. When this was recorded at Norman Petty's studio, the song was backed by Petty's composition entitled "Wheels". But when the single was issued by Warwick Records the labels for the two sides were switched and so "Tell the World" became "Wheels". When it became a hit, Petty claimed the composing credit, as shown by the label. In 1964, the parties agreed to share the credit and so the Broadcast Music copyright agency recorded all three as the composers
