Fortune had issue number in for ''Crazy Bop'' by the Earthquakes. Now, for some reason, the number was re-employed in the service of Isaiah Ross. It is unclear quite when Ross made the disc but it was probably part of a longer session or sessions during the s that were collected onto a Fortune LP in Novembercredited to Doctor Ross - The Harmonica Boss with the Disciples Messengers of Soul.
The sound of the LP is a typically muddy Fortune jumble, perhaps overdubbed in an apparent attempt to bring Ross's sound into the world of soul and revivalist blues. The single may have been issued as early as if the issue number was in fact a mistake linked to the matrix numbering, but newspaper reports from refer to the single being due for issue at that time.
However, the mid and lates saw the start of a period of renewed acclamation for Isaiah Ross - and this approval was gained from a whole new audience. Composer: - Isaiah Ross. Publisher: - Trianon Publications. Matrix number: F First appearance: - Fortune Records S 45rpm Fortune mono.
Composer: - John Sonny Boy Williamson. Doctor Ross was suddenly rediscovered, or rather, discovered, or even reinvented, in the mids as a one-man band working to white audiences in the fold blues boom years. He made a number of highly praised albums and this was certainly when the Doctor's solo boogies gained in reputation both at home and LP) Europe.
The catalyst for this was a visit by researchers Pete Welding and Don Kent who traced Ross to Flint inarranged for him to play at a folk song festival at the University of Chicago, and recorded him as a one-man-band for Welding's Testament label.
As Welding wrote, his style of music, ''is poorly represented on record. Like black string band music, it was much more commonly practised and widely distributed through black America than its meager documentation would suggest''. This led to a tour in Europe in with a package known as the annual American Folk Blues Festival.
Ross went down so well it led to a number of additional albums and further tours in and During his first European tour he became known as The Flying Eagle because he acknowledged applause by spreading his arms out and doing a little bird-like dance. Ross worked the Ann Arbor Blues Festival in and made a few appearances at venues nearer home in his vacation time, all the while singing on at GM.
He became a regular in Europe, appearing for instance at a festival in Berlin in Fred Reif managed Ross for many years and said, ''He really seemed to love that job at GM, and they would occasionally let him off work to do tours''.
Interviewers and promoters reported mixed experiences when working with the Doctor. While he was appreciative of the efforts people made to promote and help him, he apparently became convinced that everyone from Sam Phillips on down had made money of him, he said in those later interviews that Phillips had ''made millions on my music and he put to all on Elvis'', and that he should have seen more money that he did for covers of his songs by Cream and others though often they really weren't his originals.
One promoter said, ''he was a nice guy but a strange guy, a bit of a space cadet, but a great musician. He just seemed somewhat disconnected from reality, a bit living in his own world. I found it hard to get him to take care of business. Once he backed out at the last minute, with the lame excuse that some no-account relative had stolen his passport''.
This is a contrast with the Ross of who, when he first came to London, was found by Blues Unlimited's interviewer Mike Tippy Toeing - Various - The Best Of Country and Western Vol. 2 (Vinyl, to be ''a charming and Tippy Toeing - Various - The Best Of Country and Western Vol. 2 (Vinyl modest fellow who doesn't boast or exaggerate'', and who says of Sam Phillips, ''we got our money, just the same'' whether he was making sessions for Chess or Sun. Promoter David J. Boyd met Ross in when he persuaded him to play at a free political concert in a park.
He then booked Ross into local clubs and found gigs for him on and off for 25 years. He said, ''We would often go through Doc's mail - Ross was mostly illiterate - and I'd help explain contract offers and the like''.
Boyd describes the day when Eric Clapton, ''sent Doc a telegram offering to send a limo to take him to a Clapton concert at the Pine Knob Music Theater. And that was that''. In other versions of this story, people have related how Ross described Clapton Turning up at Ross's house, being told to ''fuck off'', and chased away with a pistol.
Fred Reif had a similar baseball story. I had booked him for a few gigs in Italy one time and I get a call from the promoter there, on the day he was supposed to arrive. No Dr. So I gave him a call and he answers the phone. I was very upset because he missed his flight. He said he couldn't find his passport. I told him I would make the 30 mile trip down to Flint from Saginaw and help him in finding it. I get down there and he is watching a Tiger ballgame on the television.
I asked him where Tippy Toeing - Various - The Best Of Country and Western Vol. 2 (Vinyl should start looking. He said to go into his spare room, where it was filled with all kinds of stuff and basically all shoved to the middle of the room. There it was - his passport, just laying there in the middle of the floor. I told him he had to get on the next flight tomorrow, which he did, although he didn't really want to go. He would have wanted to stay home and watch more of the Tigers on television''.
Boyd says he was always being put off when he had a booking planned for Ross, who refused to give up his day job. So we were just waiting for the word, for him to say, 'Yeah, OK music is what I want to do. I'm out of the shop'. But he always found excuses. I think it was a good part of his life. It was a social life. One year before it was I don't know. President Bush may get re-elected and then I don't know what to do.
The year before that, it was 'The war in the middle east. I can't quit yet', as though the boys ain't gonna make it and the planes won't fly if he's not at work'? Rose made plans for Ross to act and perform in a feature-length fictional movie, Wayne County Rambling, and found Ross to be, ''exceedingly nice, and looking forward to our shooting. We had trouble raising funds, and decided to put on a fundraiser in NYC and he was going to perform at it.
Opening Ensemble Ukelele Lorelei Attempting to repeat that success, they once again combined the same book writers, Guy Bolton and Fred Thompson, with the Gershwin brothers. Tip-Toes was well received by audiences and the press, and ran for performances. It was given a subsequent production at the Winter Garden Theatre in London, opening August 31,running for performances.
In an era marked by lavish extravaganzas and brash star vehicles, Tell Me More, which opened on April 13,relied on charm, modesty, and an impish sense of humor. Because it failed to recoup its investment on Broadway, it was relegated to the list of Gershwin flops; because its score was largely forgotten, it has been widely regarded as a minor effort. In truth, it's a key show. As the only full-length collaboration between George and Ira Gershwin and B.
DeSylva, it combines the delicacy and grace of the scores George had written earlier in the decade with DeSylva and the bold wit he had pioneered in partnership with his brother Ira four months earlier in Lady, Be Good!
The best of both worlds, Tell Me More was a one-of-a-kind achievement. How to Order. International Shipping. Return Policy. Order Items by Catalog. View Catalogs Online. Tom McLaughlin.
