In 1965, a local dance promoter, Bob Mack, found a copy of "Hanky Panky" in a used record bin and started playing it at his Pittsburgh dance clubs. [1] [2] Soon after, a Pittsburgh area bootlegger made a copy of the song and began pressing copies of it, speeding it up slightly in the process. [3] Sales of the bootleg were estimated at 80,000 in ten days. [1] [4] It became number one on Pittsburgh radio stations in early 1966. [4] Douglas heard about the record's sudden popularity in Pittsburgh because his name and location always appeared on Snap Records labels. [3] Numerous calls from Pittsburgh convinced James to go to Pennsylvania, where he met Mack and Chuck Rubin, who handled the talent bookings for Mack's dance clubs. Before long, all three major music trade papers, Billboard , Cashbox and Record World , were listing "Hanky Panky" as a regional breakout hit. Rubin, who had music industry connections, said it was a good time for the trio to travel to New York City in search of a record deal. [3]
