Where In The World Is.......The Murmaids? 

The Murmaids were a trio consisting of 2 sisters, Carol and Terry Fischer, and Sally Gordon.  Hailing from Los Angeles, their one brief shining moment in the spotlight came with "Popsicles and Icicles" in 1964.  It hit #3 in Billboard, and their lack of a follow up hit might best be described as a case of bad timing.  The #1 song when "Popsicles" peaked was a little tune called "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" by a group you might have heard a thing or two about, ushering in the British Invasion.   

They recorded an album following the success of "Popsicles" that was never released.  The group's label, Chattahoochee Records, carried on the Murmaids name without any of the three original group members participating.  Terry Fischer and Sally Gordon went to college, and Carol Fischer continued high school.  Terry later became a successful background vocalist, making numerous television appearances and recording as a member of the Carnival featuring former vocalists for Sergio Mendes.  In 1998, the Fischer sisters reformed The Murmaids with a new third wheel, Cynthia Perry.  They recorded and released a CD, and they still actively tour.  Find out more about The Murmaids on their website here
