Title: general crook - in the warmth of my arms (capitol 2492) 1969
Artist: general crook
Track: in the warmth of my arms
Label: capitol

2492 1969 Record information:

a very 70's sounding debut single from general crook.

crook grew up in greenville, mississippi where he played in a number of local bands. as an 18 old, in 1963 he moved to chicago where he eventually found a mentor in the form of former greenville resident burgess gardner. gardner hired him as lead singer for chicago-based the soul crusaders orchestra. the soul crusaders focused their attentions on local dances and clubs, but two years fronting the soul crusaders proved an invaluable experience and in 1969 crook got his shot at the big time via a recording deal with capitol. unfortunately the partnership proved brief, resulting in two instantly obscure 45s this track being his first.
