The Caravelles were an English pop duo consisting of Andrea Simpson (b. September 9, 1946) and Lois Wilkinson (b. April 3, 1944) with a girl group sound that became famous during the early 1960s. They are best known for their lilting Top 5 remake of "You Don't Have To Be A Baby To Cry" (1963) as previously made famous by Ernest Tubb and "Tennessee" Ernie Ford. The Caravelles got their name from the Sud Aviation Caravelle, a French aircraft. Wilkinson later recorded solo as Lois Lane, and Simpson continued to perform under The Caravelles group name with other singers through the 1980s.
