The Sharps once featured vocalist Thurston Harris. When he left the group they became The Rivingtons of "Papa Oom Mow Mow" fame. Thurston went on to his own success but "Hey Little Girl" (Otis Blackwell - Bobby Stevenson) didn't mean anything for his career when he recorded the song in 1959.

Later that same year, Delecta "Dee" Clark took "(Hey) Little Girl" into the top twenty pop chart and top ten R&B.
