Release Date:03/03/2017;Notes:10"-LP with 8 songs Calloway recorded for Bell records! Minnie The Moocher was effervescent bandleader Cab Calloway's signature theme for more than half a century. He first waxed the ditty in 1931, and his sparkling reprise in the 1980 film 'The Blues Brothers' was one of it's indelible highlights. Arthur Shimkin's BELL RECORDS was no doubt delighted to bring Cab aboard in 1954. The New York-based label specialized in soundalike versions of current hits at bargain list prices, but no way would Cab's leonine roar ever be mistaken for that of anyone else. The eight songs Calloway waxed for BELL constitute this 10-inch LP, and there are some real surprises: Cab dives into Carl Smith's country romp "Hey Joe" and Teresa Brewer's perky "Jilted" as though they were conceived for him (ditto Jim Lowe's dramatic Gambler's Guitar and the majestic Unchained Melody). Even Clyde McPhatter and the Drifters' steamy R&B smash "Such A Night" and Frank Sinatra's suave "Learnin' The Blues" were fair game for Calloway's singular pipes and he served up a fresh, invigorating version of Minnie The Moocher for BELL's fast-growing catalog.;Track List:1. Gambler's Guitar;2. Jilted;3. Unchained Melody;4. I'll Get By;5. Hey Joe;6. Such a Night;7. Learnin' the Blues;8. Minnie the Moocher;Special Attributes:10-INCH VINYL
