Don & Dewey

Biography

Wailing in tandem like twin Little Richards, Don & Dewey cut many blistering rockers for Specialty from 1957 to 1959 without registering an individual hit, and then see other works revive their music to much better acclaim. Don Harris (b. 1938) and Dewey Terry (b. 1938) had been born and elevated in Pasadena, CA, signing up for a group known as the Squires and saving for Vita before branching away independently. Their Specialty result included the savage rockers “Jungle Hop,” “Koko Joe” (compiled by Sonny Bono), and “Justine,” the last mentioned pair later included in the Righteous Brothers. Don & Dewey’s Area of expertise discography also contains the initial “I’m Leavin’ It Your decision,” popular for Dale & Sophistication; “Big Boy Pete,” ditto for the Olympics; and “Farmer John,” the Premiers’ just smash. Don Harris laid down his electric guitar for the violin through the ’60s and, billed as “Sugarcane” Harris, sawed his rocked-out fiddle beside John Mayall and Frank Zappa.
