The Dixie-Cups


A ’60s girl group, the Dixie Mugs contains one cousin (Joan Marie Johnson) and two sisters (Barbara Ann Hawkins and Rosa Lee Hawkins). All three teenagers had been from New Orleans, as was manufacturer and vocalist Joe Jones, who uncovered the talented threesome and had taken them to NY. The trio was nearly referred to as the Meltones — or worse, Small Miss as well as the Muffets — however the name Dixie Mugs was resolved on by 1964. Which was the year girls documented the well-remembered melody “Chapel of Like” over the Crimson Bird Information label. The quantity was compiled by Phil Spector, Ellie Greenwich, and Jeff Barry, and designed to end up being released with the Ronettes, Darlene Appreciate, or the Crystals. That certain single was more than enough to transport the group into music background. It became the Dixie Mugs’ biggest achievement, a million-seller, and an internationally hit. Additional hits implemented through 1964 and into 1965, like “YOU OUGHT TO HAVE Seen just how He Viewed Me,” “Small Bell,” “Iko Iko,” and “People State.” A calendar year later, Crimson Bird Information was from the picture. The trio transferred to ABC-Paramount, but there have been no more strikes, and 1966 noticed the end from the Dixie Mugs. There have been various other singles, like “Gee the Moon Is normally Shining Shiny” and “Young ladies Can Inform,” but there weren’t plenty of fans to back again the produces. In 1974, Rosa Lee and her sister Barbara Ann remaining NY behind to come back to New Orleans and discovered work as versions for awhile. Once the sisters started to sing and tour once again, their cousin Joan Marie dropped to become listed on in, therefore her place was stuffed by Dale Mickle.
