When Anne And Angela Perry were attending latin classes of Lafayette High School in Brooklyn, they used to entertain fellow pupils by singing at proms and record hops. But it wasn’t until they had graduated that the idea came to them of making it a career. So the world lost a couple of potentially great stenographers and Tin Pan Alley came up with two of its most promising new talents.
The Pretty team, (Angela a brunette and Anne a blonde) brought the disk to a record company. The girls signing a recording contract with Larry Uttal owner of Madison Records, and recorded "The Empty Mailbox" b/w "Someone Loves You, Joe". Of course it would be nice to report that it was an immediate hit. It wasn’t. But since then the girls have matured, their singing has developed a unique style and many appearances at club dates, record hops and theaters have polished their delivery.
"Someone Loves You, Joe" Charted at #91 on Billboard Hot 100 in April 1960. This was the only Hot 100 entry for the girls. Debuted on the CHUM (Canada) chart in May 1960, peaked at #33 & charted for 5 weeks, Debuted on the Music Vendor pop chart on Apr 4, 1960, peaked at #76 & charted for 7 weeks... On April 16th, 1960, the girls began a road trip with Alan Freed's final mid-west tour. The other acts on the tour were: Teddy Randazzo, Freddy Cannon, Bobby Freeman, The Fireflies, The Mystics, Sonny Til and the Oriols and Eddy Quinteros. The tour only lasted a couple of weeks and went bust.
