Product Notes

A former child actor who appeared in iconic American films such as "Boys Town," "Angels With Dirty Faces," and "Going My Way" with Mickey Rooney and Spencer Tracy, James Cagney and Bing Crosby - Eddie Davis later became a record producer and label owner in the 1950s and 60s -and even tried his hand as a pop singer. He is an important part of the Los Angeles music scene for that period, especially in the history of Mexican-American rock music. His record labels, including Faro, Rampart, Linda and Valhalla, were a haven for Latino and Chicano artists and he was instrumental in promoting their music to a national audience. One of the many hits of this genre Davis produced was "Land Of 1000 Dances" by Cannibal & The Headhunters - a world-wide hit that is still played on radio today. He recorded a few oddball singles as a singer before diving into the music industry full-time, including a duet with the famous pop singer and actress Connie Stevens. He recorded one single for the Los Angeles based Vita Records label in the late 1950s, that has since become a highly collectable, unusual pop nugget. The single, "Heart Of Ice" b/w "To Be Or Not To Be," features Davis' quirky vocals backed by the Ralph Hallenbeck Orchestra. This ultra-rare single is presented here newly remastered and finally made available in the digital domain.
