Numbers : 39-21-46

The Norfollk Virginia based Showmen followed up their 1961 #61 hit "It Will Stand" with this Carolina Beach classic which was originally titled "39-21-40 Standard". Due to a label misprint, the song became known as 39-21-46, adding a hefty 6 inches to the bottom measurement and forever suggesting the group were "Ass Men".

 Lead singer General Johnson left the Showmen and formed Chairman of the Board. Their debut single, "Give Me Just a Little More Time", peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970.
