The Larks

Profile:
US group from Los Angeles.
Only use when credited without Don Julian. Otherwise please use Don Julian & The Larks
In 1963, the Meadowlarks were a trio: Don Julian, Ted Walters, and Charles Morrison. Just to do something different, Don switched names with the band. Now the singers were called The Larks and the band was The Meadowlarks. However, the first record as the Larks, on the Electra label in March 1963, ("Mashin' Time"/"Margo"), were both instrumentals. In the summer of 1964, the Larks hooked up with Money Records (2) (run by Ruth Dolphin, the widow of John Dolphin, who'd had his own Money records in the 50s, before being murdered by someone he'd stiffed out of a payment). In September, "The Jerk"/"Forget Me" was released and immediately started climbing the charts. By the time it peaked, it had reached #9 on the R&B charts and #7 on Pop.
