(Silvertown) 14 Titel - Original LP von 1983 - Aufgenommen wurde sie ebenfalls 1983 in Manchester, Grossbritanien Clarence ´frogman´ Henry is one of those rare names in the music world that is as interesting and exciting today as when he started out. few sixties artistes have received such continuous ´golden oldie´ airplay year alter year. Barely a week goes by without the strains of ´But I Do´ — his multi-million seller — hitting the airwaves. What is it that makes particular records and certain artistes command such extraordinary loyalty and fondness amongst presenters and public alike? New Orleans born Clarence Henry is a some example of this phenomenon. He absorbed the jars, boogie and rhythm-and-blues influences of his home town during the fifties and was signed to a record contract in 1951. His hrst single ´Ain´t Got No Home´ was a Billboard Chart Number 1, and featured his now famous vocal ´croaking´ effect which rapidly earned him the unusual but unforgettable middle name which subsequently became known around the world. ´frogman Henry first achieved international recognition in 1961 with ´But I Do´, a single which made the top ten in eighteen countries and scored over three million sales worldwide. The follow-up ´You Always Hurt The One You love´ enjoyed similar international success. In the early sixties he visited Europe twice, and also played tours in Canada, Australia, South America and the far East when not working across the States, where his bouncy, uncomplicated rock ´n´ roll style was always in demand. This was highlighted in 1965, when he was featured as special guest on the Beatles´ first ever 11.5 coast to coast tour. The seventies saw ´frogman Henry concentrating far lesson louring, in ordel to spend more time at home in New Orleans with his family. Always a strong favourite in his home state in Louisiana, and throughout the American South ´frogman´ appeared regularly in the late ill´s at R ´n´B festivals, special events, revival concerts and Mardi Gras balls, whilst at the same time enjoying a ten year residency on Bourbon Street, New Orleans, where the frogman´s nightly cabaret was accurately billed as the top tourist attraction on the strip. This record-breaking stint concluded in 1982, when he refused the inevitable offer to continue, in order to make a break for other projects. This album is one of the benelits of his desire for change. It took many years before this project came to fruition, but the dynamic, week-long sessions featured top studio players. Recorded in Manchester, it produced this 14-track album of high quality.
(Dolly/Star-Club) 12 tracks - Re-issue of the original 1961 ´Mercury´ LP album ´A Dynamic Singing Personality . .´ This description by a noted critic, referring to Damita Jo, is a fitting tribute to Mercury´s tiny singing sensation. Born in Austin, Texas, her New Orleans-born parents named her Damita Jo Dublanc (´Little Lady Of White´). An only child, show-ered and guided by the love and talent of an artist mother, Damita began to ´sing out´ long before she could walk. In Santa Barbara, California, where her family moved from Austin, she was quickly recognized as ´Star Material´ as she was her high school´s leading performer and choreographer. After college, during the post World War II years, Damita began to make her mark in Los Angeles night spots and was in constant demand for radio and television appearances. Hollywood had beckoned for her when she was a youngster of 13, but her dad wanted her to stick to her lessons, and nixed a screen test and an offer to tutor her for dancing roles. Her first records were recorded on a Spanish label while she was still in her teens. In 1951 she was signed as featured singer with Steve Gibson & his Red Caps. This led to appearances around the country and starring stints on the nation´s top TV outings. It was with the Red Caps that she attracted national attention. Some of her early 50´s recordings were released on an RCA album in the mid 60´s. In 1958 she decided that the time was right to make it on her own. She signed with Mercury Records and recorded in 1960 ´I´ll Save The Last Dance For You´, her first hit that reached No 22 on the Billboard list. The song was an answer to The Drifters hit ´Save The Last Dance For Me´. She had two more hits in 1961: ´Keep Your Hands Off Of Him´ (which reached No 75) and the slow ´I´ll Be There´ (which reached No 12). In 1961 she also had a big hit in Sweden with ´Dance With A Dolly´, however this song had no success in the US. She also had a minor hit in 1966 with ´If You Go Away´ on EPIC Records. Damita Jo, in short, was a singer in the top rank of girl vocalists in the 50´s and early 60´s. The Big Bopper
(2000 ´Delmark´) (68:48/14) Gutes neues Album der starken Sängerin, die sich diesmal neben klassischen Bluesthemen z.B. auch ´Nutbush City Limits´, bekannt von Tina Turner, vorgenommen hat / fine new effort from this powerful singer.

GAYDEN - bass, TIM AUSTIN - drums. Learned My Lesson is the celebration of Zora Young´s lifelong love affair with the blues.This is Zora´s first album on an established American label which is surprising since she is one of the most creative blues singers in Chicago. Zora was born in West Point, Mississippi and raised in Chicago where she grew up singing gospel music in a south side church. After years in the R&B ´´chittlin circuit´´, she switched to blues and since then has shared the stage with B.B. and Albert King, played the Chicago Blues Festival many times and tours Europe regularly. Zora´s voice ranges from a melancholy whisper to a rock ´n´ roll scream, and she will have you in her corner with one listen.
