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... Click Here for More Info
This is simply a blog where I post interesting 45s that I come across. I'm not an expert on records or music history and I'm fairly lazy, so don't expect a lot of exhaustive background or research. Comments are highly encouaged...
Most of the music files presented here come from my personal 45 collection and are posted for purposes of musical enlightenment only. These are mostly obscure songs, over 40 years old, that may not have been reissued on CD. The intention is to raise awareness of underappreciated artists/songs. If you like what you hear, seek these artists out on CD or get out there and find some of this old vinyl for yourself... If you are the copyright holder and wish any files to be removed, I will do so immediately upon request.
