• Damita JO - Love Laid Its Hand On Me 1952-1962

3 ORIGINAL ALBUMS PLUS 12 BONUS SINGLES

The music business seems to delight in categorisation so, for anyone charged with putting Damita Jo into a pigeonhole; it must be a nightmare task. Is she jazz? Is she pop? Is she R&B? Well, she has been considered all those things yet none of them because she is simply a singer's singer, a song stylist with one of the classiest, crystal-clear voices in the business.

The first 20 tracks on the first disc feature Steve Gibson and The Red Caps for which Damita was a lead vocalist.

Features 3 LPs plus 12 bonus singles and includes the hits: 'I'll Save The Last Dance For You', an answer record to the Drifters hit, 'Save The Last Dance For Me'. Climbing to #22 pop and #16 R&B on the Billboard listings, and another answer song, 'I'll Be There' - a response to Ben E. King's 'Stand By Me'.

Fully detailed liner notes covering her career.
