In 1955 she landed a recording contract with Dot and, with the backing of the Billy Vaughn orchestra on all her ensuing hits, she chalked up 12 to 1957. And here you get all but one. And that one omission is one reason why I knocked off 3 stars, especially when tracks 5, 9 and 17 represent previously-unreleased recordings, 8 and 14 are from albums, and 11 and 18 were failed singles.
Her first was actually her best as her cover of the Smiley Lewis R&B hit, I Hear You Knockin', went to # 2 Billboard Pop Top 100/# 15 R&B in late 1955 b/w Never Leave Me, which is regarded as a Billboard "follow-along" hit. As the year drew to a close she had a cover of the Dean Martin hit, Memories Are Made Of This, commence its rise to # 5 Top 100 b/w Teen Age Prayer, a cover of a release by both Gloria Mann (# 19) and Kitty White (# 68), but despite being a B-side, Gale's finished higher at # 6 early in 1956.
The covers continued in March when her version of the Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers hit, Why Do Fools Fall In Love? topped out at # 9 Top 100 b/w I Walk Alone (not here).Read more ›
