Dick And Dee Dee - Songs


Dick & Dee Dee were a male-female pop duo that became famous during the early 1960s. The founding members were former classmates at Paul Revere Junior High School in Los Angeles - Mary Sperling and Richard Gosting (d. December 27, 2003, age 63) - who subsequently became known professionally as Dick St. John and Dee Dee Sperling, respectively.

Dick & Dee Dee debuted on the Pop/Rock charts in 1961 with "The Mountain's High," the song for which they are best known. This smash, which peaked at #2, was followed by a string of hits through 1965 that includes "Young And In Love" (1963), "Turn Around" (1963), and "Thou Shalt Not Steal" (1964).

Throughout the early and mid 1960s, Dick & Dee Dee toured with many top bands and artists that included The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones. In 2007, Sperling published a memoir, "Vinyl Highway, Singing As Dick And Dee Dee In The Sixties," which chronicles their life on the road. Dick & Dee Dee were also regular guests on the "Shindig!" TV show.
