The Silhouettes were a Philadelphia doo-wop and soul group best known for their self-penned song Get A Job, recorded in 1957 and a number one hit on the R&B and pop charts in 1958. The untold story - Tony Mammarella, Dick Clark's program director, had half the publishing on their follow-up Headin' For The Poorhouse and it never got any airplay on American Bandstand - how bizarre is that? Elaine Lewis, Widow of Silhouette Rick Lewis, Elaine was an integral part of the group's revival in the 1980s and recently released a complilation CD of unreleased songs of the group. Photobucket
