Loneliest Gal In Town Album
This afternoon I was searching through the Chess records discography and discovered besides a whole lot of fantastic musicians Little Miss Cornshucks’ album LP-1453 – “The Loneliest Gal in Town”. When she recorded this album for Chess Records in 1961 she already had a long career behind her as a performer in Nightclubs and recording for several labels. She met Atlantic records owner Ahmet Ertegun in the late forties before he started his label and she blew him away.
