Georgie Fame - Discography

Georgie Fame - Discography


Born: June 26, 1943

Georgie Fame's swinging, surprisingly credible blend of jazz and American R&B earned him a substantial following in his native U.K., where he scored three number one singles during the '60s. Fame played piano and organ in addition to singing, and was influenced by the likes of Mose Allison, Booker T. & the MG's, and Louis Jordan. Early in his career, he also peppered his repertoire with Jamaican ska and bluebeat tunes, helping to popularize that genre in England; during his later years, he was one of the few jazz singers of any stripe to take an interest in the vanishing art of vocalese, and earned much general respect from jazz critics on both sides of the Atlantic.

Hi Big Dave
I think that I do have it here in my collections, I just need to search through the multitude of CDs/LPs.
I hope that I am right so that I can share it for you.

Best Wishes
Ozzieguy

Hi Ozzieguy,
Big Dave here from Brizzy... did you ever find that 1974 album "Georgie Fame" on Island Records label? It is the only one I'm missing from my Georgie Fame collection. I once lent him my Hammond A100 when he was touring Australia about 20 years ago.

Hi there Big Dave,
I know that I do have that album but have not been able to find it as yet, so many CDs and LPs in my studio lol
I shall go and have another look shortly after my doc visit mate. And wow Hammond A100, I loved that sound of those organs.
Best Wishes
Ozzieguy
