New Book - Jerry O - On The Record Off The Wall

Jerry O, On The Record - Off The Wall

A new book has just been published about one of the most enigmatic names on the sixties Soul scene - Jerry O.

Never really accepted as a true Soul singer, Jerry Murray was more of a Soul showman who owned record labels, produced records, managed groups, deejayed and released eighteen records himself.

Contact Keith at popcornboogaloo@gmail.com or pm him @Funky 4 Corners for details of how to obtain a copy.

Keith asked me to  mention that it's a limited run of only 150 and they are all numbered and signed.

Intrigued and very surprised to see  Tony Mason's "Bring the country to the city" at #2 on the WDAS 1966 chart....which presumably meant it got a fair bit of airplay....nearly all the other songs there are much better known

More Jerry O / Jerrio related bits … he seemed to live off his 'boogaloo' connection most of the time but broke from it in his White Whale & Wand days …  @ the Howard Theatre in DC, they organised a special Boogaloo dance contest to coincide with his week long appearances in Nov 67 at the venue (guess he had to select the winning dancers).
