Record information:

shelley fisher was born in clarksdale, mississippi. he moved to chicago at the age of ten and grew up on the city's west side. fisher began his musical career by studying music theory, composition and vocal technique in the chicago junior college system, roosevelt university and sitting in at the monday night "jam sessions" in the jazz clubs all over chicago. in 1966, shelley wrote his first 'hit', "girl, i love you". the song launched the career for singer garland green and it was the first r&b release for universal mca (uni review) records. also in 1966, he performed as a principal in oscar brown, jr's musical production "summer in the city" (harper court theatre, hyde park, chicago). each night of the three month run, shelley was a "show stopper" when he performed "elegy" (to a plain black boy), lyrics by illinois poet laureate gwendolyn brooks. when the show closed, he produced the song on his aries record label. the single went on to become a regional hit and led to him opening a revue at the regal theatre. stevie wonder was the closing act. since that time he has shared billing with world renown artists such as the dells, eartha kitt and b.b. king. shelley departed chicago in 1970 for los angeles with his big band musical arrangements, and his dreams. he hooked up with the great lou rawls who recorded shelley's composition "yesterday's dreams", released on capitol records. his musical works have since been released on; motown records, sony records, mca records and warner brothers records.
