Lee Rogers - Go-Go Girl - D-Town

60s SoulPosted by Martin Mon, May 09, 2011 08:48:06
Born in Mississippi in 1939 as Roger Lee Craton, Rogers' family relocated to Detroit when he was just three years old. There he joined the church choir and also began to sing with local street corner groups. In 1959 he was a member of The Peppermints, a group that had two releases on the local Hob label the same year. In the early 60s Rogers met Mike Hanks, a local musician and entrepreneur who brought him to his stable of labels. Rogers had a big hit in 1964 on Hanks' D-Town label with his track "I Want You To Have Everything, which made #17 on the Billboard RnB chart in early ´65. Sadly this was Rogers only breakout hit, and although he continued to record frequently throughout the decade, none of his following records managed to repeat the success of "Everything". This great double-header, the other side is called "I'm A Practical Guy", was released in 1966. Enjoy!

"Go-Go Girl"
