DECEMBER 24 BIRTHDAYS! I was busy preparing for our family gathering yesterday, so I'm playing catch-up today! New Orleans singer Lee Dorsey (1924-1986) This is one of the many Dorsey songs written by Allen Toussaint.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Irving Lee Dorsey December 24, 1924 – December 1, 1986 was a pop and R&B singer during the 1960s. His biggest hits were "Ya Ya" (1961) and "Working in the Coal Mine" (1966). Much of his work was produced by Allen Toussaint with instrumental backing provided by the Meters. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Dorsey was a childhood friend of Fats Domino before moving to Portland, Oregon when he was ten years old. He served in the United States Navy in World War II and then began a career in prizefighting. Boxing as a lightweight in Portland in the early 1950s, he fought under the name Kid Chocolate and was reasonably successful. He retired from boxing in 1955 and returned to New Orleans, where he opened an auto repair business as well as singing in clubs at night. His first recording was "Lottie Mo", for the small Valiant label in 1958 (picked up by ABC Paramount in 1961), and he also recorded for the Rex label. These efforts were unsuccessful, but around 1960 he was discovered by A&R man Mars ...

Lyle Lovett said hearing Randy Newman on the radio showed him you could write a song about anything. Allen Toussaint played Randy Newman's Louisiana. Peter Wolf, read admiring notes from the John Prine, Jackson Browne, and James Taylor. Randy played a song and I was living in a dream, grinning from ear to hear. A big, big thank you to my pal Kathy Sands-Boehmer for inviting me to tag along. It was a magical musical afternoon.
