Shelby Flint

She wrote and recorded "Angel on My Shoulder" that debuted on 2/06/61 and charted at #22.

Her recording of the traditional folk "The Riddle Song" ("I gave My Love a Cherry") on a Collectors' Choice Music CD demonstrates the purest female voice I have ever heard.

PS: Johnny Mathis borrowed the melody of "The Riddle Song" for his #9 hit "The Twelfth Of Never" in 1957.
