Product Notes

2012 collection. As Boogaloo & His Gallant Crew, Kent Harris cut the original version of Bo Diddley's 'Cops and Robbers' and shot to prominence when it was proved that his version of 'Shoppin' for Clothes' was the original one, purloined by Leiber and Stoller for the Coasters. He was a major mover in black music in LA, appearing as DJ Stumblin' Blue on XERB, Wolfman Jack's station. He also had a string of record shops called Target Records in Southern California. His family included three sisters: Marcene ("Dimples"), Beverly and Betty who performed as the Harris Sisters. Dimples was the most prominent and it was on the flip of two of her 45s for the Trend label in 1954 that Kent first sang as Ducky Drake. Then came the Boogaloo 45s. Dimples continued to record under several different names and is featured on 'Love Came Tumbling Down' which she wrote with husband Harold Jackson who is also featured on the stunning 'Freedom Riders'; both are very in-demand 45s for the new R&B dance crowd. Ace.
