When I was in the 5th or 6th grade (1971 or 72)
The kids in my class danced to a a song called "I know I'm in Love". I think it was an east coast song since no one over here (California) has heard of it. It was 2 kids...a boy and a girl. After that one song I never heard from them again.
Does anyone remember these 2 kids?
There was another song by some little boys that year that sound like the old Jackson Five..it was called "I'm just falling in love". I THINK that was the title. The lead singer's voice was so squeaky...I can't remember what he was singing! LOL The group was the Ponderosa twins!

Chee Chee & Peppy were siblings discovered by record producer Jesse James (the composer/producer of The Fantastic Johnny C's "Boogaloo Down Broadway" among other hits).
"I Know I'm In Love" was released on Buddah Records in late 1971.

The cut you're talking about by the Ponderosa
Twins is called, " Bound". They had two other
cuts, one was Sam Cooke's remake, " You Send Me",
and the other was, " I Remember You", which was
the B side of, " Bound". They were from Cleveland,

I have that 45..on Astrology Records. Thats a a killer tune! They flipped "You Send Me".. I beleive Chuck Brown produced them..I wonder if they made an LP?
A woman named Eleanor Mills (prod. by Sylvia) is on that label too.

Chee Chee and Pepe! OMG. I haven't heard their name in years. Now I know I'm old. ROTFL!
|By Juicefree20 (220.127.116.11) on Friday, March 12, 2004 - 06:35 pm:|
Chee Chee & Peppy were Keith "Chee Chee" Bolling & Dorothy "Pepe Pepe" Moore from Pennsylvania. They have one other 45 that I am aware of: Never, Never, Never B/W Loving You Really Comes Easy (Buddah 254 - 1971).

Here's a photo from Soul newspaper of Chee and Peppy backstage at a Jackson 5 concert at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, May 28, 1971:

Good to se Jesse James right there with them too.
|By Juicefree20 (126.96.36.199) on Friday, March 12, 2004 - 08:19 pm:|
Hey J5collector, great picture! I've never seen a picture of them before, not that I can remember anyway. Damn, how far into the archives did you go to find this one?? Now, can anyonr post a picture of Tomorrows Promise, The Fuzz or Creative Funk???? Great picture, thamks for sharing!!!
|By jrlo (188.8.131.52) on Friday, March 12, 2004 - 11:31 pm:|
Wow thanks so much for sharing that!!! I only remember what they looked like from their album cover! Now that you have shared the picture, I would LOVE to find a copy of thier record!!
They looked soooo young!!!!!
|By J5 Collector (184.108.40.206) on Saturday, March 13, 2004 - 12:34 am:|
Jrlo, I've never seen their album, but I would love to. It's come up on ebay a few times, but I always get outbid. I don't ever remember seeing it for sale back in the early 1970s. If I had, I would have gotten it for sure. I do have their 45s, and remember that they got quite a bit of airplay on soul stations in the early 1970s.

Way to go guys. I'm feeling pretty old right about now(LOL) I forgot all about this duo. I may have that single somewhere. Iremeber my sister was crazy about that song.
|By Wonder B (18.104.22.168) on Saturday, March 13, 2004 - 04:37 am:|
Slyfan, Chee Chee & Peppy did two albums...
One on Buddah in 1972 with no title and another one in the early 80's (super hard to find) called SUPER YOU on the Branding Iron label...
|By jrlo (22.214.171.124) on Saturday, March 13, 2004 - 01:34 pm:|
I keep hearing about www.gemm.com
I checked it out yesterday, they had the single available..they may even the LP! Gemm is better than ebay..at least on Gemm you dont' have to bid on anyhthing!
|By sly fan (126.96.36.199) on Saturday, March 13, 2004 - 02:34 pm:|
Wonder B: You are the man bro! I was already hitting up a couple of my sources they said the same thing. Good looking out!!

I was at that very same Jackson Five concert. In fact, my sister had started a Philly J5 fan club, which I thought was a joke, a laughingstock, until we went to the Spectrum that night, they told me to watch their coats while they all got up. I thought all the girls were go to the restroom at the same time. They came back with polaroids of them with the Jackson Five! I was dying! Apparently my sister's club was legit and had gained access to the brothers before they went onstage. They met the J5 and took pictures and had me watching coats! On top of that, my dad was the chaperone with the fancy, top of the line polaroid camera. He shot all the pictures. It took me years to stop hating them both for thinking a boy would not have wanted to meet them! I would have been king of my school!

Thats so cool for your sister Andre98, but I don't blame you being P.o.'d. It reminds me of the time I had a letter from Ike Turner & was able to get backstage to meet Tina & The Ikettes and left my brother & a friend at the stage door...my brother was fuming...until I brought out Esther Jones(our fave Ikette) to meet him.
|By Wonder B (220.127.116.11) on Thursday, March 18, 2004 - 01:46 pm:|
I liked Claudia Lennear among the Ikettes too... LOL
|By RoseyK (18.104.22.168) on Thursday, March 18, 2004 - 09:18 pm:|
OH my goodness, I actually still have this 45 and used to play the hell out of it back in the day and NEVER knew who Chee Chee and Peppy were. WOW...you all are full of information. Thanks for taking me back!!
Now I have to go dust off my 45's and find that one and play it :o)
|By J5 Collector (22.214.171.124) on Thursday, March 18, 2004 - 11:48 pm:|
Hey, Andre, how did you like the concert???
Here's another photo from that same issue of Soul. Do you recognize anyone? (I've always liked the little stylin' dude in the front.)
|By Uptight! (126.96.36.199) on Friday, March 19, 2004 - 01:06 am:|
J5 Collector, that's too funny! LMAO!
|By enwtn (188.8.131.52) on Sunday, March 21, 2004 - 10:20 pm:|
I am 36 years old and I remember that song. My sister and I use to pretend that we were Chee Chee & Peppy.Up until right now, I never knew what they looked like. I just played the record about 3 weeks ago.

The Plus One in the Ponderosa Twins is Rickey Spicer not Spencer. The Elements (later Moving Violation) member, Mark Anthony actually sings the opening lines of the Ponderosa Twins Plus One's biggest hit "You Send Me." I Remember You" was also recorded by the O'Jays but it remains unreleased, as the tape is either lost or destroyed. Chuck Brown never produced a record in his life, couldn't do it if he tried, regardless of what the label credits says.
F.Y.I. Arman Howard Lovett the older brother of Lee Lovett (S.O.U.L.) was brutally murdered a few nights ago along with his friend. Howard, his friend and Howard's girlfriend were tied up in the basement of Howard's home and shot in the head. His girlfriend survived.

All well and good...but what the public really need to see are pics of 'Pepe the poodle' as featured on Pricilla Paige's, 'Throw the poor dog a bone' for Topper out of Detroit? Did Pepe record any other tracks...was she a real bitch/he a hound-dog...we need to know! :-)
|By Steve LItos (18.104.22.168) on Friday, March 26, 2004 - 06:10 pm:|
Wow...I have the Ponderosa Twins single "The Bitter With the Sweet"! It actually sounds good played at 45 RPM & 33 RPM! You get a more adult sounding track played at the slower speed.
