Product Description

Product Description

The Sherrys' enjoyed an extremely brief recording career, exploding onto the scene with their hit single Pop Pop Pop-Pie, which capitalised on the Popeye dance craze. Based around sisters Delphine and Dinell Cook, the daughters of Philadelphia singer Little Joe Cook, and their cousin Charlotte Butler, with the future Tammi Terrell (then known as Tammy Montgomery) also briefly as member, although she does not appear on the hit single. Delores 'Honey' Wiley was also a one time member, but it is the Cook sisters and Butler who were to appear on the cover to the group's only album, At the Hop, released on the Guyden label in 1962. Pop Pop Pop-Pie hit #25 on both the pop and R&B chart, but subsequent releases fared less well, with The Sherrys considered little more than a one hit wonder in their US homeland. In Europe, however, they attracted considerable attention, enough to warrant two tours before the group name was eventually retired. Their only album has long been highly sought after, containing as it does several other dance inspired tunes.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Sherrys are back! 12 Feb 2014
By Bruce H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an exact CD reproduction of the super rare 1963 Sherrys LP on the Guyden label, which I've never so much as seen an original copy. Fortunately on account of European copyright laws, after fifty years we finally get here on the UK Hallmark label this legal import reissue, and at a very reasonable price at this time. One of the relatively few girl groups afforded to have an album in the early sixties, this evidently was one of only three LP's issued on Philadelphia's Guyden label, a subsidiary of Jamie.

A scan of the 12 titles show all to be related to the dance craze(es) of that immediate pre-Beatles era. Many of the songs were written by producers Dave White (member of Danny and the Juniors) and John Madara. While several of the songs tend to be of the three and four chord variety, the great harmonies by the girls, excellent instrumental backing, and fine production values make this a great album (certainly contributing to its rarity). All but a couple of the songs are mid to fast tempo, and the exuberance is quite infectious indeed! In addition to their top forty hit from 1962, Pop Pop Pop-Pie, for me the most memorable song is Let's Stomp Again, the B-side of the group's second 45 (A-side, Slop Time). Like most of the LP's of the era, it's relatively short in duration, clocking in at under 28 minutes. No liner notes on the insert, though songwriter credits are given. It's all in mono (there was never a stereo issue of the LP), but the sound is fine.

Be aware that there is an out of print Bear Family CD (from 1996) out there, which has 8 additional cuts from the group which were not on the original album, which may appeal to completists willing to pay somewhat more for those extra tracks. My four star rating of this reissue tends to reflect only the somewhat bare bones nature of the exact repro packaging and content, as judged by contemporary eyes and ears, not the music within. So if you're wondering about this album, get it! But I keep wondering while looking at the front cover photo--is that their version of the "Hitch-Hike"?!!
