Thuston Harris, 1931-1990, began his career as a member of The Sharps in 1953. By 1957 he was recording as a solo artist and would produce one big hit.
“Little Bitty Pretty One” first reached the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart during late October of 1957 and would eventually peak at number six. He was backed by his old group The Sharps. It was more of a smooth pop song than rhythm & blues but its catchy nature was perfect for AM radio at the time.
Harris would have a couple on small hits but by 1965 he was out of the music business. He spent the rest of his life as a tour guide and bus driver. The Sharps changed their name to the Rivingtons and performed until the late 1990s.
