Format: Audio CD
Born Irving Lee Dorsey in New Orleans on December 24, 1926, he dabbled in boxing, served a stint in the Marines and earned his living as a mechanic before launching his singing career in 1958 at age 32 with the small New Orleans label Valiant Records, singing an Allen Toussaint tune called Lover Of Love b/w one he co-wrote called Lottie-Mo. Released as Valiant 1001, it not only failed to chart but the label's owners had to change their name after being threatened with a lawsuit by another company claiming the name to be theirs. So they became Instant Records. The following year he cut Lonely Evening/Rock for the even more obscure Rex Records (Rex 1005), but hardly any pressings were distributed. Then, in 1961 at age 35 he finally got his big break with Fury Records, launched in 1957 in Bobby Robinson and which had a number of successful singles to this point including 1959's # 1 (Pop and R&B) Kansas City by Wilbert Harrison, himself over 30 at the time. So, clearly, Robinson wasn't adverse to taking chances with older artists in the days of those usually in their teens or early 20s.

The break-out disc was Ya Ya which climbed to # 1 R&B and # 7 Billboard Pop Hot 100 in September/October on Fury 1053. That success prompted Ace Records of Jackson, Mississippi and the much larger ABC-Paramount to each lease his earlier sides and re-release them as Lottie-Mo/Lover Of Love on ABC-Paramount 10192 and Lonely Evening/Rock on Ace 640. But without success, and after his follow-up Do-Re-Mi peaked at # 22 R&B/# 27 Hot 100 February 1962 on Fury 1056, his next three releases there into 1963 flopped. He followed that with two more failures, one in 1963 with the Mercury subsidiary Smash, and another in 1964 with Constellation Records.
