Dee Edwards - He Told Me Lies - D Town

60s SoulPosted by Martin Thu, July 14, 2011 18:25:32

Doris Jean Harrell was born in Montgomery Al. in 1945. She began singing in church at the age of five and when the family relocated to Detroit in 1960 she and her brother Albert met brothers Tommy & Freddy Martin who they formed the group The Paragons with. Local music man Mike Hanks discovered the group and signed them to Duke Browner's Exit label where they released their debut 45 "My Time Is Important To Me / Pretty Words (That’s What I Want To Hear)" in 1963. The record didn't do much and the group went separate ways soon after. Harrell however stayed with Mike Hanks and recorded a number of 45s for his D-Town label. This is her first release on the D-Town imprint, an excellent ballad from 1963. Enjoy!

"He Told Me Lies"
