Blues In The Red - Doc Pomus

Blues In The Red
Doc Pomus was an is acclaimed as one of THE classic songwriters... sometimes alone, sometimes in the company of peers like Leiber and Stoller, and frequently with composer-partner Mort Shuman, seemingly effortlessly wrote or co-wrote 24k rock and pop classics bu the bushel such as "Boogie Woogie Country Girl", "Teenager In Love", "Lonely Avenue", "Can't Get Used To Losing You", "His Latest Flame", "Sweets For My Sweet", "Little Sister", "Youngblood", "Viva Las Vegas", "Save The Last Dance For Me", "Suspicion", "Turn Me Loose", "A Mess Of Blues" and countless other award-winning tunes of the '50s and '60s. But this white, crippled, middle-class Jewish kid started his career, unbelievably, as a blues-shouter in 1940s New York City, following in the footsteps of his heroes Big Joe Turner and Wynonie "Mr Blues" Harris. For the first time ever on CD, we explore Pomus' secret history as a recording artist which, coincidentally, also reflects the amazing history of rhythm & blues from mid forties risque blues and jazzy jump tunes to mid fifties screaming rock 'n' roll.
