Carl Carlton - Drop By My Place - Back Beat

70s SoulPosted by Martin Tue, June 28, 2011 16:27:18

Carl Carlton a.k.a. The 12 Year Old Wonder, Little Carl Carlton and 14 Year Old Sensation began singing, you guessed it, at a very early age. He was just eleven when he had his first record released in 1964 on Lando, a local Detroit label . In 1968 he recorded the now classic "Competition Ain't Nothing" and was also signed to Don Robey's Back Beat label. Carlton lived at Robey's ranch for a while whilst recording some great material for the label between 1968-74. He later recorded for a number of labels: ABC, Mercury and 20th Century to name but a few. Today's addition is from 1970 and although he was just 17 at the time of release, Carlton's voice and choice of material had already matured compared to his earliest recordings. Enjoy!
