Al Brown's Tunetoppers was a band led by Al Brown, born May 22, 1934, who had success in 1960 with a dance tune "The Madison" on Amy Records. The dance calls were by Cookie Brown. Although successful in record sales, it had to fight off a competing version by Ray Bryant on Columbia Records who titled his "Madison Time" with calls by Eddie Morrison. Dickey Doo & The Don'ts also released a version of "The Madison" on a United Artists album. Dickey Doo was fronted by Gerry Granahan who had a hit with "No Chemise Please" in 1958.
