LITTLE GARY FERGUSON - A MOTHER'S LOVE
Predating Michael Jackson/ The Jackson Five, there was Little Gary Ferguson from Texas, who (the story seems muddled) may have moved to Nashville around 1966 to seek fame and fortune. Hoss Allen, host of the amazing TV show "The !!! Beat" more or less discovered him and featured him on the show a few times and the then 8 year old had a fantastic mini-James Brown stage show happening with a surprisingly developed voice (check out the youtube clips; they don't disappoint!)
This seems to be his only release, although he played at least a few road dates as there is a poster from c1967 advertising a gig at Los Angeles' Shrine Auditiorium featuring Little Gary, The Mothers Of Invention, Count Five and The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band. Oh, to have a time machine and go back and see THAT gig!
