 five satins 

The Five Satins recorded “In the Still of the Night” in the basement of Saint 
Bernadette Catholic School in New Haven, Connecticut, February of 1956. It  
was originally released on the small Standard label, but was re-released by
Ember Records after strong local sales. It is the only song to have charted on
the Billboard Hot 100 three separate times, by the same artist with the same
version each time. After initially reaching #24 in 1956, it was released again
in 1960 where it reached #81. Then more than a year later in 1961 it reached
#99.
