Jackie Lee - Oh My Darlin' - Mirwood

60s SoulPosted by Martin Tue, April 19, 2011 12:28:12

Really named Earl Nelson, Jackie Lee had a massive hit called "Harlem Shuffle" in 1963 as part of the duo Bob & Earl together with L.A. legend Bob Relf. He had previous to that been in a number of groups, including Bobby Byrd's The Hollywood Flames. Lee's solo career got of to a flying start when he released "The Duck" in 1965, a dance record that quickly climbed the RnB charts. Mirwood (a Los Angeles based company) quickly released a full length L.P. to capitalize on its success. Lee continued to record throughout the 60s, releasing a number of wortwhile uptempo grooves. This is my personal favourite. Enjoy!

"Oh My Darlin' "
