Biography
Wailing in tandem like twin Little Richards, Don Dewey cut numerous blistering rockers for Specialty from 1957 to 1959 without registering a single hit, only to see other acts revive their songs to much greater acclaim. Don Harris (b. 1938) and Dewey Terry (b. 1938) were born and raised in Pasadena, CA, joining a group called the Squires and recording for Vita before branching off on their own. Their Specialty output included the savage rockers Jungle Hop, Koko Joe (written by Sonny Bono), and Justine, the latter pair later covered by the Righteous Brothers. Don Dewey's Specialty discography also includes the original I'm Leavin' It Up to You, a hit for Dale Grace; Big Boy Pete, ditto for the Olympics; and Farmer John, the Premiers' only smash. Don Harris laid down his guitar for a violin during the '60s and, billed as Sugarcane Harris, sawed his rocked-out fiddle beside John Mayall and Frank Zappa. ~ Bill Dahl, Rovi
