Shorty Featuring Georgie Fame - Shorty Featuring Georgie Fame

Shorty Featuring Georgie Fame
Released on 28/06/10. Georgie Fame was a Mod icon/superstar from the early 60s on - mixing equal parts Mose Allison, jimmy Smith, R&B, jazz and Ska a singular talent, and perhaps the first UK performer to feature the Hammond B-3, (or even have one!) transcending his birth in Larry ParnesĀ¹ teen idol factory to become an icon of swinging cool whose perpetual Madras drape was made immune to fashion by his transcendant timeless projection of that cool.....Indeed as far as Europe was concerned Georgie Fame was The Coolest Cat Of Them All! A run of chart hits including 3 #1s made him a major star in the UK and Europe and a player in the UScharts too...a major star in the UK through the 60s and early 70s, he was by the early 70s in a rather odd unexpectedly almost MOR partnership with fellow maverick Alan Price. The LP Shorty: featuring Georgie Fame , which was released in 1970 seems to have been an effort to apply an edge, or at least a festival/ballroom era veneer, remaking him from a personality staple of the era's TV and presenting him as part of a band (thus Shorty!).
