|Len Barry was born Leonard Borisoff, June 12, 1942, in West
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Born and raised in Philadelphia, It was not
until he entered military service and had occasion to sing with the Army
bands, and was so encouraged by the response of his soldier audiences,
that he decided to make music a career. Upon his discharge from military
service, Barry returned home to Philadelphia and joined The Dovells as
their lead singer. His is the lead voice on their best selling records "Bristol
Stomp", "Hully Gully Baby" and "You Can't Sit Down."
Both "1-2-3" and "Like a Baby" were composed by
Barry, John Madara and Dave White, one of the original Juniors from
Danny & the Juniors. Barry also covered "Treat Her Right"
by another blue-eyed soul act, Roy Head and the Traits.
