"Little Bitty Pretty One" was the obvious inspiration for the Accents' sole hit "Wiggle Wiggle" and though the similarities were evidently not sufficient to warrant a lawsuit, Aladdin took the expedient step of covering the song with a group called the Chestnuts.
Comprising Robert Armstrong, (Born in California in 1936), Billy Hood, (Texas 1932), Jimmy Jackson (Ohio, 1930), Arvid Windell Garrett (Illinois, 1936), Israel Goudreau Jr. (Texas, 1938) and Robert Draper Jr. (Alabama, 1934), It's likely that the Accents came together in the Service.
The group cut two more unsuccessful follow-ups before disbanding in 1960.
I Give My Heart To You Wiggle Wiggle
Dreamin' And Schemin Ching A Long
Anything You Want Me To Be Autumn Leaves
