Very young. I daresay before Connie became Connee.

"....it's the girl that makes you happy and it's the girl that makes you blue!"

They were so far ahead of their time...their layered harmonies, ingenious arrangements and their perfect blend of personality and raw talent stand out amid today's generic tripe of so-called vocal talent...yeah ,that's right , "American Idol" , I'm talking to YOU!!!

They had a great version of "We're In The Money" back in the 30s. Their version of "Alexander's Ragtime Band" is fab too.
