Now here’s a real rarity from Joan – the Gone All Stars on an EP and their 1958 hit single “7 – 11” b/w “Down Yonder Rock”.
The Gone All Stars were the studio band fronted by tenor sax player Buddy Lucas which gradually replaced Jimmy Wright as the backing musicians on many recording sessions for the George Goldner group of labels, including sides by artists such as The Dubs, The Imperials and The Chantels. Buddy Lucas recorded a series of singles for Jubilee around 1951, as well as acting as studio bandleader, before moving to RCA Victor for a year where he had releases on both RCA and its subsidiary Groove. In 1955 Buddy moved to Savoy where he provided studio backing for big name artists like Larry Darnell, Big Maybelle, Annie Laurie and Hal Singer.
These tracks are ripped from original 1950s vinyl, so there is some surface noise. But, as we all say, that IS rock’n’roll! Anyway where else are you going to hear these tracks? Thanks again Joan!
Ripped at 192 kbps (converted from m4a format).

The Association "Birthday" 1968 - Birthday is a strong record. Vocally, the intricate harmonies shine, and there is a lyrical depth on some songs that challenge the Association's reputation...
