      Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Lester Tipton was a child star. Alongside his twin sister Leslie, the Tipton’s were dancers on “Swinging Time”, a local TV variety show. They were not only known for putting popular steps to music, but for their style of dress. They found national recognition when chosen to represent Detroit on Dick Clark's "American Bandstand" competition, topping the grand finals in 1968. The team decided to pursue their interests in California, where they both became involved in fashion activity and films. This Won’t Change was released in 1966 and would be the only release of Tipton’s career. He was murdered at home in Los Angeles in 1982.

      This Won’t Change is one of the rarest and highly valued soul releases in the world, original pressings fetching upwards of $5000 online.

      Edwards Hamilton & The Arabian’s Baby Don’t You Weep was originally released in 1967 on Mary Jane Records, an imprint of Lou Beatty’s La Beat Records that had released This Won’t Change the previous year.
