We feature his four singles for the great Class label including the Hot hits: 'Pretty Girls Everywhere' '36 in and 'Miami' 67 in Also the one single for Rendezvous and an unissued take of' 'Miami', all produced by Leon Rene. Included are Church's five King singles, which are almost unknown even though produced by Johnny Otis.
This compilation may have taken a long time in coming but it serves as a fitting tribute to a man who, whilst his time in the limelight was all too brief, gave us a great body of work. Oh boy, oh boyyy! I remember bopping to Pretty Girls like it was yesterday. All of us kids were crazy about his music but it's funny, we listened on the radio but not one of us had L´agua Azul - Ernie Watts Quartet - Wheel Of Time album by him.
I am SO happy to see this and can't wait to Eugene Church - Pretty Girls Everywhere / For The Rest Of My Life . In fact, think I'll put on my now dry rotted boppin' shoes. Thank you! Post a Comment.

Church was born in St. Louis, but was raised in Los Angeles, where his father was pastor at a church at 5th Avenue and West Adams. Jesse showed him the finer points of vocal harmony and songwriting.
The latter song was the inspiration for Eugene's biggest hit, "Pretty Girls Everywhere", which made the Top 40 36 in Church claims that the late Tommy "Buster" Williams, another member of Jesse Belvin's inner circle, inspired the song when they were out driving around in Church's car. Originally intended for Bobby Day, who was not interested, it was credited to "Eugene Church and the Fellows", though the background singers also included the female group The Dreamers.
Four further King singles followed in quick succession, produced by Johnny Otis, but sales were very limited. Over the next four years he sang nothing but gospel music. In he recorded one last single "Dollar Bill" for the World Pacific label, before embarking on a study to become a beautician. Eugene opened his own beauty parlour, from which he made much more money than he had ever seen as a recording artist.
Church left in with Richard Berry. Posted by boppinbob at Labels: Eugene Church. Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.
