Record information:

dee wolf of d & joe fame was born in 1942 but sadly passed away in 2000 in memphis, tennessee. dee had lived down the street from where barry gordy started motown & he knew all the motown hopefuls he once told a story of alone in the chapel the flip to instant happiness (de to 2875 a) which he recorded with his friend, joe. shortly after the recording he appeared on a television show in memphis, tennessee and decided that television was much better than records alone. he broke his recording contract and went to new york where he literally walked into abc and told them he wanted a tv show. at that time, there were no black tv hosts (before soul train...after nat king cole). he got a 13 week series which was a variety show where he introduced such talents as bobby womack (his first tv appearance), the chi-lites, the stylistics (their first tv appearance). he did shows in toledo, ohio; memphis, tennessee; and eugene, oregon. dee had the chi-lites on the show in memphis and they had 2 background vocalists. one was bobby womack's sister and the other was vanessa williams' sister. one day dee was riding in the elevator at the claridge house, where we lived in memphis, and this man said, "oh, my god! you are dee wolf, aren't you?" when dee answered yes, the man said, "you sang with my uncle, joe, of dee and joe." it is a small and amazing world! so yes, dee & joe were a 'one hit wonder' group in the 1960's.
