Jimmy Callaway - Club My-O-My

Jimmy Callaway On Stage

Audio File Deleted

A few years back I used to collect 50s memoribilia from New Orleans nightclubs. That's where the above postcard came from. I don't really collect that stuff anymore (records have taken over), but when I found this 45 recently, I couldn't resist. Club My-O-My was a drag club near New Orleans in the 50's and 60's that catered to some of the more adventurous tourists. This 45 was a souvenir from My-O-My performer Jimmy Callaway. I estimate the date to be about 1961? With a few off color jokes and some questionable singing, this recording is a snap-shot of a type of club routine that doesn't really exist anymore. It's not terribly funny, but it does have a certain, fascinating "Broadway Danny Rose" kind of appeal. Just listen to that audience response...
