1977 Gusto LP focussing on Clyde McPhatter’s years with the Dominoes (1950-1953). The first 9 tracks have lead vocals by McPhatter, while in the second 9 he features on backing vocals. I wonder if it was this version of “Harbor Lights” that Elvis had heard before he recorded his own version of the track at Sun. McPhatter’s lead vocals on the slow numbers are among the most haunting you’ll ever hear.

Awsome,Amazing,A real blast from the past.
Do you know the french singer Charles Aznavour ?:
"You are the one for me
For me, for me, formidable"!
I abuse but i just want to know if you have something from Ivory Joe Hunter ?
Yes, I do have an Ivory Joe Hunter album (on Mr R&B)which I will post in the future.
As for Charles Aznavour ... I know him slightly (he had a hit in the UK with 'She'),but I am willing to predict that hell will freeze over before he appears on this blog! Or are you saying I'm formidable? Merci mademoiselle! If you're a monsieur, kindly disregard the last comment .....
Anyway my favourite French language singer is Jacques Brel ...
For Aznavour it was just a compliment for your fantastic job, but I agree with you Jacques Brel is the greatest. But if you love rock'n'roll and country music, Dick Rivers is the better, and Elvis is his musical son...
No, no, don't hit me, it was just a joke!
Thank you for the compliment! Brel was fantastic - I've just been watching the YouTube clip of him perfornming 'Amsterdam' at the Olympia in 1964 - one of the most stunning live performances I've ever seen. Dick Rivers? Get outta here! Perhaps one day I'll post Francoise Hardie singing 'Tous les garcons et les filles de mon age...' as an example of French rock'n'roll! (actually I quite like it)
