EMORISE KELLY - THE BIGGEST FOOL b/w DISAPPOINTED IN LOVE



A great double sider from a mysterious singer. Seems as though all is known about Emorise is that he was initially a vocalist in a group I'm not familiar with called The Paramounts (not the UK Paramounts that I know of), and that he tragically died in Vietnam after being drafted c1968.

The performance on this record shows that Emorise had incredible talent; I *think* he had at least one more release that I would love to hear.

from 1963...

Half Way Loving by Buddy Conner is written by Emorise Kelley. The song is posted on Youtube.
The Biggest Fool could have been sung by Bobby Blue Bland. Very nice.

if that's true, what happened to him, that must not have been his real name. great record though.

"The Biggest Fool" written by Sonny Bono? That gives it some Phil Spector pedigree.

I found and fell in love with The Biggest Fool when I was trying to track down songs by Sonny Bono. Thanks for posting the other side! I'd never heard it before.
