The Innocents

These are the same Innocents that sang behind Kathy Young, singing about the stars. They must have been moonlighting. The group actually had two hits; the first was called Honest I Do and it reached number 28 a few months before Gee Whiz, which also reached number 28.

The Innocents:

Gee Whiz – A rather melancholy sounding record about the wonders of new love. It is in much the same style as the records they made with Kathy Young, and sounds not unlike Angel Baby by Rosie & The Originals. It was as if someone were deliberately trying to keep things juvenile. Not the Carla Thomas song. From late 1960 / early 1961.
