An incredible vocalist...Dee Dee Sharp became the
first true black female teen idol in the early
1960s. A regular performer on Dick Clark's
American Bandstand, Sharp is the First Lady
of the Philadelphia Sound.
"Mashed Potato Time", her first recording,
became a million-selling dance anthem.
She continues to record and perform today.
Checkout her website:

I'd say yes to Dee Dee.She was one of the few really talented artists to come out of Cameo - Parkway Records....and Ed Sullivan must have thought so as well...he had her on his show . Kenny Gamble married her, and recorded her on his Philly Intl label as well.

Dee Dee is a maybe at best. Chubby and Bobby I'm all for. After that, it's either her, the Dovells, or the Orlons. All great fun to listen to, but none of them really all that deserving. "Mashed Potato Time" was basically a re-imagination of "Please Mister Postman", and the dance itself was only marginally big. As much as I love Cameo-Parkway, I gotta say I'm not sold on her.
