(See For Miles Records)) 26 tracks Stateside & Columbia - It was in June 1967 that the ´Atlantic Soul Review´ hit Amsterdam to play a concert at its renowned concert hall, the Concertgebouw. The star studded pack-age featured some of the finest talent from the Atlantic and Stax labels such as Sam and Dave, Eddie Floyd, Carla Thomas, Arthur Conley and Booker T and the MG´s. Wilson Pickett had been announced as the headliner of the show, but he appeared to be indisposed and was replaced by Lee Dorsey at the last minute. I had recently been installed as the label manager for the Stateside label at Bovema, the Dutch company that represented EMI Records. Lee´s recordings on the American Amy label were released on the Stateside label in Holland. I was duly consigned to perform the usual hospitality ritual bestowed on visiting international artists that the record company represented. In the case of Lee Dorsey, this proved to be a delightful job. Lee was a happy and easy going character with an infectious grin and chuckle. I spent one of my better nights out, introducing Lee to the various delights that Amsterdam had to offer during the late 1960´s, and I can assure you that he was great and appreciative company. The next evening he proved to be a consummate showman and hard worker as the only non-Atlantic/Stax artist in the ´Atlantic Soul Review´. Lee stole the show and won the hearts of the Dutch soul fans with his segment in the show, culminating in his suggestive and humorous rendition of ´Ride Your Pony´, which caused a near riot in the usually sedate Concertgebouw. Irving Lee Dorsey was born in New Orleans on December 4, 1926 and moved to Portland, Oregon at the age of 10. During the late 1940´s and early 1950´s Lee was a successful lightweight boxer, operating under the nickname ´Kid Chocolate´. He survived a four year stint in the Navy after which he resumed his boxing career. Lee hung up his boxing gloves during the mid 1950´s when he returned to New Orleans. Circa 195658 he met Allen Toussaint, either at a party or in a studio to which he had taken a page of verse in the hope of making a record out of it. At that time the younger Toussaint, born in New Orleans in 1938, had already passed through the R&B group leader and touring accompanist stages to begin his climb through the ranks of local session musicians. During the late 1950´s Lee made his first recordings for Joe Banashak´s Instant label. One of these singles was ´Lottie Mo´, which became a regional hit on which he was backed by Allen Toussaint, who also arranged the track. Marshall Sehorn, who was Southern promotion man, talent scout and sometime producer for Bobby Robinson´s New York based Fury label, heard ´Lottie Mo´ on the radio during one of his visits to New Orleans in 1960. Marshall was duly impressed by the record and Lee subsequently signed to the Fury label. ´Ya Ya´, Lee´s first Fury single, exploded and went to No. I R&B and No.7 Pop on the Billboard charts in September 1961. Petula Clark covered the song as ´Ya Ya Twist´ for consumption on the European market, and reached the UK Top 20 with it. Fury followed ´Ya Ya´ up with ´Do-Re-Mi´ in December 1961 and again Lee scored a considerable hit, peaking at No.27 Pop and 22 R&B on the Billboard chart. ´Do-Re-Mi´ was regularly performed by Georgie Fame and Dusty Springfield. Lee recorded another 3 singles for Fury, but the hits had dried up. A subsequent Fury album contained 15 tracks, Lee´s total recorded output for the label, recorded in New Orleans in 1961 and 1962. Allen Toussaint who wrote, arranged and produced hits for Joe Banashak at this time, also freelanced and almost certainly arranged and co-produced with Marshall Sehorn all of Lee´s Fury sides. Toussaint did not play piano on ´Ya Ya´ according to Kurt Mohr´s Lee Dorsey discography. The backing on ´Ya Ya´ was provided by: Marcel Richardson, piano, Melvin Lastie, trumpet, Harold Battiste, tenor sax, Red Tyler, baritone sax, Justin Adams, guitar, Chuck Badie, bass and John Boudreaux, drums. The back-up on ´Do-Re-Mi´ consisted of: unknown horns, Allen Toussaint, piano, Roy Montrell, guitar, Richard Payne, bass, and John Boudreaux on drums. The Fury label collapsed in 1963 and Allen Toussaint was drafted into the army at the same time Lee returned to his car repair business while his recording career temporarily stalled. During the next few years Lee, still managed and produced by Marshall Sehorn, had a single released on the Smash label and
Lady Galina More and her brother, Georgie, the Earl of Ranmore, are in despair because they own two large historic houses which are entailed. Georgie decides he will have to marry an American heiress, so he opens his house in London, but has no idea how he can staff it or afford to entertain. He meets Mr. Craig Farlow, one of the richest oil millionaires in America who has brought his daughter, Ellie-May, to London as he wants her to marry a title and he becomes a tenant at Georgie´s house in Park Lane. Galina has been a huge success because of her beauty, but she is determined not to marry anyone unless she is in love. When she meets Lord Bramton, she loses her heart, but knows it is hopeless as he is as poor as they are. Because Ellie-May is attracting so much attention, the Prince of Wales becomes interested, so they all get invited to Sandringham. In the meantime, Georgie has gone off to America to see, if by some miracle, he can find one of the fabulous oil wells. How love triumphs over money, and how the prayers of those in love are answered, is told in this unusual and exciting story by Barbara Cartland.
