Jack Scott – Gary
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.
