The Barry Sisters

According to Wikipedia The Barry Sisters were Yiddish Jazz singers. Somehow in the wilds of Northumberland (the radio, I'm sure) they caught my attention when I was little, as did the Andrews Sisters and the Beverley Sisters (big heads, one blonde/blue eyed, one brunette/brown eyed, one red-haired/green eyed, although they didn't have to share a lazy scribbled dress like the Barry Sisters).
Girl groups were just about all I drew for a year, apart from 'Little Girl Crying Because She Doesn't Want Her Hair Cut'.

I don't remember the Barry Sisters, but I remember the others. On Saturday I was listening to Sound of the Sixties on Radio 2 ...... as soon as Cathy Kirby came on I could picture her bright red lipstick!
