Yesterday - 3 filles en stéréo The Sisters of Charm

A charming record. The sisters are using the universal language of 'doodahdoo' and 'ladida' with a very nice french accent. I couldn't find much more information about them. It's the only record they've made.

On the back cover of the album the liner note says  (translation)
"A combination of Ray Conniff and the Swingle Singers, that's how you can describe The Sisters of Charm. Their sparkling interpretation gives a new dimension to these world hits."
