Biography

A vocal trio from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, comprising Carol Jackson (lead), George Gainer and Joe Livingston. The group purveyed an infectious pop soul girl-group sound that was typical of east coast African-American acts during the early 60s. Their one big hit was ‘Who Do You Love’ (number 9 R&B, number 25 pop) in 1964, but they recorded other excellent numbers in ‘Oh So Soon’ and ‘Where Is Johnny Now’. Moving to ABC later in the decade, they failed to return to the charts but created several cherished singles that later found favour in the UK on the northern soul scene, such as ‘Gotta Have Your Love’ and ‘Slow Fizz’.
