The Fireballs are best known for their 1963 puppy love hit "Sugar Shack
." They followed it up with the equally anodyne "Daisy Petal Pickin'," but then fell out of favor. Group leader Jimmy Gilmer took an interest in folk music and often went to Greenwich Village to see the performers. He learned "Bottle Of Wine" and recorded it with The Fireballs, giving them their last significant hit, as the song climbed to #9 in the US.
