Did You Know?


Sparks left the group in May 1963 after growing tired of the demands of arranging, managing, supervising the group, as well as performing. The group disbanded in 1971 after such minor hits as "Chim Chim Cheree" (#20) from the Mary Poppins (1964) soundtrack. He recently returned and performed with a revived group of "Minstrels."
