Caravelles, The

The Caravelles were Lois Wilkinson (born 3 April 1944 in Sleaford, Lincolnshire) and Andrea Simpson (born 9 September 1946 in Finchley, London).


The duo experienced most success with their 1963 hit single, You Don’t Have to Be a Baby to Cry, which reached #3 in the Billboard Hot 100 in America, and #6 back home in the UK Singles Chart.

They could not maintain their success, and Wilkinson began recording solo under the name Lois Lane.

Andrea Simpson continued to use the name The Caravelles through the 1980s in groups with other musicians, and still performed occasionally into the 1990s.
