Beitrag PIXIES THREE Antworten mit Zitat
Hier eine der frühen Girl Groups, produziert von
Dave White und Johnny Madara:

In 1963, three high school friends (Midge Bollinger, Debby Swisher and Kaye McCool) from Hanover, Pennsylvania, signed a recording contract with Mercury Records. This was quite an accomplishment for the girls, whose previous experience as “The Pixies” consisted of talent shows, service clubs, carnivals, a couple of summers at Tony Grant's ('unpaid' talent) Steel Pier show and two appearances on the Ted Mack Amateur Hour. John Madara and David White, producers with Mercury and its sub labels, found the trio at a Philadelphia club on “talent night” where walk-on talent was not only welcomed but frequently “discovered.” Madara and White signed the girls to a recording contract and suggested the name be changed to “The Pixies Three” as a Baltimore group had previously made a record (although not successful) under the name “The Pixies”.
For one full month the group (with Midge on lead, Debby on high and Kaye singing low) rehearsed at the Schubert Theater in Philly working with Madara and White penned tunes. Leon Huff, who later partnered with Kenny Gamble to create “The Sound of Philadelphia” and Soul Train, was their 16 year old rehearsal pianist. Huff, who always stood and danced while he played, and the girls were frequently caught clowning and often chastised to “get back to work.” The result of the month's effort was BIRTHDAY PARTY b/w OUR LOVE (written by Kaye), which shot into Billboard's Top 40 with a bullet.
A second set of recording sessions at Reco-Art in Philadelphia on October 4, 1963 gave birth to the Pixies’ two sided smash, COLD, COLD WINTER b/w 442 GLENWOOD AVENUE. With both sides of the platter charting at the same time, neither song reached its full chart potential. But record sales were bigger than BIRTHDAY PARTY and the Pixies had another hit. Shortly after the release of their second hit, Midge left the group for personal reasons, and Bonnie Long, another high school friend, became the new Pixie.
By early 1964, the Pixies Three had become one of the most popular girl groups on the music scene. With two successful hits to their credit, The Pixies Three were appearing around the country with the likes of Dionne Warwick, The Four Seasons, The Dave Clark Five and The Rolling Stones. Mercury decided it was time for an album. The group's first, and only, album, PARTY WITH THE PIXIES THREE, was recorded at Mira Sound Studios in New York. Possibly the best “party” platter ever recorded, it featured not only the talents of the Pixies, but also those of renowned session musicians Trade Martin, Artie Kaplan, Vinnie Bell and the girls’ friend and fellow cut-up, now known as Leon “Fingers” Huff. Two cuts were pulled from the album, GEE b/w AFTER THE PARTY, for release as the next Pixies 45. Released in March 1964, this double sided slice of heaven encountered the over-bearing domination of the British Invasion on the charts. Even so, GEE still managed to hit the top 10 in many regional markets and held a respectable #87 spot in Billboard and #79 in Cashbox.
THE HOOTCH b/w SUMMERTIME USA, recorded at Mira Sound that May, hit the record shelves in June of 1964. After complaints from stations that the word “Hootch” (a new dance in the spirit of "The Monkey", "The Swim" or "The Mashed Potatoes") meant “liquor “and was not considered appropriate for airplay by program directors, the record was “flipped” by Mercury. Full page ads in Music Vendor, Cash Box and Billboard showed an inverted Pixies singing SUMMERTIME USA, with a banner announcement: “You've Got Us Upside Down”. But, it was too late, for record stores were already returning their overstocked copies of the unheard HOOTCH and, while SUMMERTIME was getting airplay, there were no records to purchase. In spite of this fiasco, SUMMERTIME managed to break Billboard's Top 100.
1965 brought the release of the two final Pixies Three singles, ORPHAN BOY and YOUR WAY, both noteworthy efforts that failed to chart. Kaye, Bonnie and Debby graduated from high school and went their separate ways.
In 1991, The Pixies Three were asked by their classmates to reunite for their 25th high school reunion. Bonnie (Long) Walker, who still resided in Hanover and worked for an engineeing firm, had done some solo work with a regional band. Since she was on the reunion committee, she was asked to find the other Pixies. Debby (Swisher) Horn , it was learned, was in Oklahoma where she was active in music, singing with her own band. Kaye (McCool) Krebs was found in Virginia Beach, Virginia where she was a corporate executive. Kaye had not sung outside the shower since the break-up. Much to everyone's disappointment, Midge (Bollinger) Neel could not be found.
And so the reunion show with The Pixies Three of Bonnie, Kaye and Debby took place in 1991 and continued in various Oldies venues throughout the eastern US, until an auspicious moment in 1997 when a man came up to the group backstage, five minutes before a performance for 2000 people in Ocean City, MD. “There is someone special here who wants to see you,” he said. “Well, we're getting ready to go on, how about later,” they replied, not wanting to be impolite. And at that moment, Midge walked into view, and the real, complete Pixie reunion took place. After the show and many hugs and congratulations, Midge said, “Well, ladies, if you ever need me, I'm available.” So, imagine Midge's surprise when, three years later, she gets a call from Bonnie and Kaye in January of 2000, after Debby decided to leave the group. “Do you know that song, 442 GLENWOOD AVENUE?” Bonnie and Kaye sing, “Come along, come on….”
