    David Ruffin Part Two

    I can’t believe I never completed this blog until now, but I’m glad I did, because I have a special album, for this blog, so read David Ruffin Part Two first.

    Personal Life

    Ruffin was married two times. His first marriage was to Sandra Barnes in 1961, with whom he had three daughters, Cheryl, Nedra and also Kimberly. He also had one son with his long-term girlfriendGenna Sapia, whom he met in 1964. Genna claimed that considering that she really did not know whether David was coming or going (as a result of the well-publicized affair with Motown associate (and also Marvin Gaye duet partner Tammi Terrell), she named the baby David E. Sapia.  Later on, David changed his son‘s name to David Eli Ruffin, Jr. The three liv...

    Films Of 1953

    Musical Films Of 1953 were getting scares, even though they had movie stars, color (but no real story to care about), it couldn’t compete with TV. TV was Black and White, only Radio programs turn to TV shows, and up and coming actors, but that was free, and in your home. TV had verity shows, but the movie industry has weak plots and the songs seem out of date, for the times were changing, and the movie industry couldn’t keep up with the shows that you didn’t have to park your automobile, buy a ticket, nor over priced snacks. Teenagers might go and see a movie, at a drive in, to make out, but the grown ups stayed at home. It wasn’t the same, and I only highlighted the ones that I can watch without sleeping through them. I’m hoping next year will be better.

    Have you ever wondered what she’s doing since the 1980’s, well you don’t have to wonder any longer, for it’s right here in Crystal Gayle Part Three

    1990 Present: Later Career


    Gayle released two more studio albums throughout the 1990s: Ain’t Gonna Worry (1990) produced by Allen Reynolds and also Three Good Reasons (1992) Both albums failed to chart and also their singles all failed to reestablish Gayle at country radio, which by this point had actually abandoned older musicians of all kinds. Gayle subsequently recorded numerous specialty projects. She released two gospel albums Someday (1995) as well as He Is Beautiful (1997 ). In 1999, she released the tribute album, Crystal Gayle Sings the Heart and

    Ella Fitzgerald Part Three

    I feel great doing, who I call “The Lady Of Jazz”, and from time to time, I do blog on her, like this one called Ella Fitzgerald Part Three, please enjoy.

    Verve Years

    Fitzgerald made her first tour of Australia in July 1954 for the Australian-based American promoter Lee Gordon. This was the first of Gordon‘s popular Big Show promotions as well as the package tour also consisted of Buddy Rich, Artie Shaw as well as comedian Jerry Colonna.

    Although the tour was a success with audiences and established a new box office record for Australia, it was marred by an incident of racial discrimination that caused Fitzgerald to miss out on the first two performances in Sydney, and Gordon needed to arrange two ...

    Crystal Gayle Part Two

    I’m ready to begin Crystal Gayle Part Two, because I have a new album that I believe you will like to listen to. Also I found new information about her, which is more important.

    1977 1989: Crossover

    Believing Gayle was positioned for a larger breakthrough, Reynolds urged her to record the jazz-flavored ballad, Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue. The song ended up being the most successful of Gayle‘s career, spending four weeks atop the country chart. The song reached Number 1 on the Cashbox Top 100 Singles pop chart, became her greatest hit on the Billboard Hot 100 (No. 2), peaked at No. 4 AC as well as gained considerable airplay worldwide. Gayle earned a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance...

    Juice Newton Part Two

    She was my very first Country and Western singer and performer (she writes music, so she’s not just some singer with a pretty face, that you see now a-days), and I have all of her albums on vinyl, and now, I’m doing Juice Newton Part Two.

    From Pop To Country

    Newton had constantly been reasonably popular in country music; she replied to her subsiding popularity in the pop market by targeting her next album, 1985‘s Old Flame, entirely to country audiences. The strategic move  was a success; the album renewed her career, reached No. 12 on the Billboard album chart and included six Top-10 country hits, including the No. 1s You Make Me Want to Make You Mine, Hurt, as well as Both to Each Other (Friends and Lovers)
