The Sandpebbles

From New York City, New York, USA, this vocal group comprised Calvin White, Andrea Bolden and Lonzine Wright. White had been a member of the Gospel Wonders in the early 60s and he brought some robust gospel-style singing to the Sandpebbles when he formed the group. Under the aegis of New York producer Tony Vann, the Sandpebbles enjoyed big hits with ‘Forget It’ (number 10 R&B, number 81 pop) and ‘Love Power’ (number 14 R&B, number 22 pop) for the Calla label in 1967. The Sandpebbles changed their name to C And The Shells in 1968, and produced by Jerry Williams, had a hit with a softer-styled ‘You Are The Circus’ (number 28 R&B) in 1969. C And The Shells left Cotillion in 1970, and joined the tiny Zanzee label, where they recorded with little success. The last release by the group was in 1973.
