    Biography :

    The Pastels are the Riels Sisters : Carolyn, Patricia, and Mary. They are originally from Bastrop, Louisiana area, but were singing out of Dallas, TX for their record. They worked in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, singing vocal back-up. They made several recordings under different names, Bill Smith, would record them and give them a different name for each recording. "Sleep Tight"  was record that produced just for them, to try and help them make it on their own. The flip side of this record is a catchy tune called "Do You Ever Think of Me".
