Well, Daddy's money probably got the original group their gig at Disneyland, but Gary was discovered on his own. Although, I gotta say no to them. Unlike the Vogues, who will also never get in, Lewis' covers were absolutely dingy, flat renditions. The originals border on what I would call required listening for 60's pop. They do have some really good B-Sides like "Tina", "Time Stands Still", "Without A Word Of Warning", "Little Miss Go-Go", and "I Won't Make That Mistake Again," and aside from their version of "Sealed With A Kiss", all of their Top 40 hits are really good and fun pop music. Perhaps it's the session players, perhaps it's the production of Snuff Garrett. But Lewis is a good singer too.
