Harvest

From the back cover of their debut single, 'The Teddy-Bear Song', which had been a hit in the USA
for Barbara Fairchild and Gordon Lightfoot's 'Cotton Jenny'.

Harvest emanated from The Ventures Showband and though Mary Lou (Coleman)was marketed as a 'teen country sensation', she was more at home with pop and standards.

Lead Vocals: Mary-Lou / Helen McCaffrey / Billy Jo

When Colm Hughes left to join Paddy Cole's Superband, Harvest were taken over by Connie Lynch.
The line-up showed some changes in personnel and was reduced to a 5-piece plus Mary Lou.

After Mary-Lou, Helen McCaffrey fronted Harvest. The tailor was released with a caution!
