The Sheep

The 1960s

The Sheep, who were signed by FGG Productions as artists and studio musicians, recorded the tracks for "Hang on Sloopy" for The McCoys and "I Want Candy" for The Strangeloves.

Ironically, the same group that recorded the tracks later went on and performed live as The Strangeloves.
