L J Mitchell

There aren’t many records from Las Vegas on this site but here’s one that shouldn’t rest unnoticed. ListenIt’s A Shame is a blues ballad of some class – I love the relaxed, almost lazy feel to the song and L J’s high tenor vocal which almost floats over the arrangement. Especially when he cuts loose and ratchets up the intensity. The production is by Cholly Williams.


UPDATE ~ Gerritt Raws kindly writes to say the date for this recording is 1966 which amazes me. It sounds much later but Gerritt found the info in the "Catalog of Copyright Entries, Music Name Index, January-June, 1966". I'm grateful to him for sharing this info.
