DANNY WHITE - CRACKED UP OVER YOU

New orleans singer Danny White released 14 singles in the '60's, and one of which (the lovely 1963 ballad "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye") was a pretty sizable regional hit.

After the success of that record, Danny recorded for several other labels but never had another hit to speak of. This side from '66 is a BURNER and is equally as good as the original Lee Rogers version of this track (and adds a decidedly New Orleans flavor as well).

By the late '60's Danny White's recordings and performances were trickling out, and he managed The Meters early on.

from 1966...

I love both sides of this 45, but especially this one.
This was recorded in Memphis, and I've seen references that suggest a couple of different Memphis drummers, but I'd bet some dough it's a New Orleans guy on the skins.
