This ‘girl group’ came from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. It was formed in the early 60s by Little Joe Cook, who had sung the hit single, ‘Peanut’, as lead in his group the Thrillers in 1957. The Sherrys consisted of his two daughters, lead Delphine Cook and Dinell, his niece Charlotte Butler, and a friend of the girls Delores ‘Honey’ Wylie. Their first record, ‘Pop Pop Pop-Pie’ (US R&B number 25 and pop number 36 in 1962), was a lightweight song, but because it came out in the midst of a Philadelphia-manufactured dance craze the record became a national hit. ‘Slop Time’ (1963) was the equally banal follow-up. The group broke up soon afterwards, but Charlotte Butler later married a Swedish rock ‘n’ roll star and appeared with her husband on their own television show.
