The Sharps recording “Six months three weeks two days” was originally released on the Tag label in 1956 and reissued by Chess a couple of years later. The group used a number of names including The Lamplighters and The Rivingtons. They are understood to have been Al Frazier, John “Sonny” Harris, Carl White and Rocky Wilson. We think that is the lineup shown in the above picture, can anyone confirm, please? Some accounts mention Matthew Nelson as being a member. The recording of “Little bitty pretty one” identified as being by Thurston Harris and The Sharps is thought to be the same group; can anyone confirm, please?
