Two Sisters

Members: Man Parrish, Raul Rodriguez

Alias: C.O.D., I.R.T. (Interboro Rhythm Team), Rama

The Two Sisters were actually the production duo of Man Parrish and Raul Rodriguez and the name was a nickname given to them by someone at Sugarscoop.

The vocalists were receptionists from the Sugarscoop offices, Theresa Pesco and Tracey ???, and it was decided to use their images for the album cover and all promotional material. They also appeared later as vocalists on the Man Parrish release, ‘Hey There, Homeboys’.

Dance music history: The TWO SISTERS “Name”

 I used to hang out a lot with Raul Rodriguez. We wrote a whole bunch of records together. A few of them are now considered classics. One of the guys at the record label coined us the “two sisters” because we would be like Lucy and Ethel, always getting into trouble. So, one day we needed a name for our group, and as a private joke we decided to use “Two Sisters”. The girls on the cover worked as a receptionist in the office, and could sing. We needed singers for the tracks I wrote and we used them. So now you know the “Two Sisters” is actually a goof name for Man Parrish and Raul Rodriguez (RIP).. [Man Parrish]

Also worthy of note is Mark Berry, who engineered the tracks and Marcus Barone, who wrote and played keyboards on Right There.
