Among others, Mr. Fowley produced “Popsicles and Icicles” by the Murmaids, above. The song, written by David Gates, the future founder and front man of Bread, reached No. 3 on the pop charts in January 1964. (It's bubblegum, I know; sue me.)
The Murmaids were a one-hit wonder all-female vocal trio composed of sisters Carol and Terry Fischer; and Sally Gordon from Los Angeles, California. In 1963 the Fischer sisters were 15 and 17 years old; Sally Gordon, also 17, was a friend and neighbor.
