Lee Rogers - Sad Affair - D-Town

60s SoulPosted by Martin Thu, June 17, 2010 19:51:52

"Lee" Rogers Craton or "The Prince Of Detroit" met Mike Hanks, a pivotal figure on the Detroit music scene whilst, a member of the group The Peppermints. Hanks was then a budding piano player in and around the motor city, and when he founded his own labels, Mah´s and D-Town, he immediately signed Rogers. Some local hits followed, "I´m A Practical Guy", "I Want You To Have Everything" and "Go Go Girl" amongst others. Rogers left his native Detroit in the early 70s but continued to record in his new hometown San Francisco for the Loadstone label. He later found himself stepping back from the stage and becoming an promotions man instead for a number of companies, but it is as an artist he is most foundly remembered. Enjoy!

"Sad Affair"
