In reply to: Ted 's message, "Whatever happened to Christine Nelson and Cathy Carr?" on Wed May 18, 2005 12:59am CST

Christine Nelson passed away.

Lorie Mann recorded "First Anniversary"


Cathy Carr - I do remember her one hit wonder "Ivory Tower"
b. 28 June 1936, Bronx, New York, USA. Carr was a sweet-voiced and bubbly MOR/pop singer who had some brief success when climbing on the rock 'n' roll bandwagon in the mid-50s. As a child, Carr appeared on her local Horn & Hardart Children's Hour. She was later a singer and dancer with a USO troupe and, for a time, fronted the orchestras of Sammy Kaye, Johnny Dee and Larry Fontine. She joined Coral Records in 1953, but no hits were forthcoming. Carr then signed to the Cincinnati label Fraternity Records in early 1955, and her third single for them, a cover version of Otis Williams And The Charms' R&B number 1, "Ivory Tower", took her to the US Top 10 in 1956, for the only time. She never made the Top 40 again but had three small US hits, the later two coming on Roulette in 1959. Carr joined Smash Records in 1961 and Laurie in 1962, where she re-recorded "Ivory Tower", and later signed to Dot Records in 1966.

Ivory Tower (Fraternity 1957)**.

I don't know where she is now.
