Ronnie Love - Chills & Fever  (c.1960)

There are a thousand riffs on Little Willie John’s landmark ‘Fever’, but Ronnie Love’s ‘Chills and Fever’ is perhaps the ultimate - notching up the tempo with a swinging piano riff and cranking up the intensity with dramatic, blaring horns. 

one of the quintessential records which signaled the beginnings of Detroit soul.

*First released as “Johnny Love” on Startime 45-5001, later as “Ronnie Love” on Dot 45-16144.

Nona S. Sukhanov was born in Leningrad in 1934 in the family of an electrical engineer. 

She graduated from the Philological Faculty of Leningrad University. 

Performed in a youth jazz orchestra Anatoly Badhen in Leningrad jazz orchestra Segal, she was a soloist of the orchestra-septet Kandat Orestes (a veteran of the Soviet jazz - bandleader, bandzhista, alto saxophonist, clarinetist). Sang in “Lenkontserte.” 

Unfortunately, the singer has not achieved popularity corresponding to its mastery and external data. Perhaps her performances and recordings ogranicheli because of the desire to sing in English, what the censors of the time disapproved. 

Voice Suhanova whole country heard on Voice Talents execution “Songs of the sea devil” (“Hey, sailor!”) In the 1961 film “The Amphibian Man”, but fame songs repeatedly surpassed the most famous singer.

Grizzly Bear - While You Wait for the Others (feat. Michael McDonald)

…this came out in August 2009 just before I started A Song A Day.  I don’t think it ever made it into the playlist but it certainly should have.  A Grizzly Bear “While You Wait” single … with a b-side where Rossen’s vocal is performed by Michael McDonald.
