Yo Yo's 'Goldwax Presents The Singin' Swingin'...'  7" EP


In the 1950s and 60s, the Cincinnati recording scene was dominated by Syd Nathan’s King label, whose R&B catalogue made it a major player among post-war independents. In its shadow was Fraternity, a smaller concern launched by Harry Carlson in 1954. The well-respected Carlson set about building an artist roster which reflected his conservative musical taste, scoring smash hits by Cathy Carr and Jimmy Dorsey a couple of years later which established the label as an indie to be reckoned with.

Here, though, Ace Rec. spotlight decidedly non-MOR Fraternity recordings by influential guitar hero Lonnie Mack, soulful girl group the Charmaines, bluesy singer-guitarist Albert Washington, and female duo the 2 Of Clubs - here’s your chance to enjoy four fine examples of the sound of mid-60s Cincinnati!

track list:
A1 Lonnie Mack - Sa-Ba-Hoola
A2 Albert Washington And The Kings - Jealous Woman
B1 The Charmaines - Rockin Pneumonia
B2 2 Of Clubs - Walk Tall Like A Man
