Jack Scott – Gary

Please see our revised post: Jack Scott
Here’s a little music of a great Canadian 50’s singer.  Born: Giovanni Dominico Scafone Jr. in Windsor Ontario in 1936.  He recorded under the name of “Jack Scott”, in Detroit, I think, with a group called the Chantones.  “Leroy” was his first big hit:
Jack Scott and the Chantones – Leroy
but a song that only made the top 30 was my favourite “The Way I walk
Jack Scot and the Chantones – The Way I Walk
I think the closest he came to #1 was this one…
Jack Scot and the Chantones – What In The World Came Over You
… and “Burning Bridges” after he changed labels.

I have the Original Carlton LP in Stereo with the Chantones; it truly, from a technical Stand Point is fantastic.  They did know how to record way back then. Enjoy!

PS:  The Carlton Records had the great tenor sax in them.  Top Rank label made him a ballad singer (What in the World’s Come Over You).  I enjoyed the Carlton recordings the best with the Chantones and the wailin’ tenor sax.
