Proby was born James Marcus Smith in Houston, Texas on 6 November 1938. (…) In 1957 Jimmy went to Hollywood to become a movie star and a singer. In Hollywood he looked up his old friend Tommy Sands, who advised him to take vocal coaching with the famous Lillian Goodman. (…) Jimmy’s name was changed to Jett Powers by the agents Gaby, Lutz, Heller and Loeb, who represented such names as Liberace, Johnny Ray, Kay Star and Frankie Laine, just to name a few. Two singles were released on Design Records.
Jett Powers met and hung out with a lot of now famous people, like Sharon Sheeley, who wrote Poor Little Fool for Ricky Nelson, Eddie Cochran, Elvis’s ex-girlfriend Dotty Harmony who Jett became engaged to, Kim Fowley, Johnny & Dorsey Burnette and many, many others in the industry (…)
In 1962 Sharon Sheeley got Jett a recording contract with Liberty Records and a song-writing contract with Liberty’s publishing arm Metric Music. Sharon changed Jett’s name to PJ. Proby, after an old boyfriend of her from her high school. Using his real name James Marcus Smith he wrote numerous songs for Metric Music and some of them became hits. The most well known songs are the Searchers’ hit Ain’t Gonna Kiss Ya, Johnny Burnette’s Clown Shoes and I Only Came To Dance With You by The Walker Brothers. Quoted from / All Rights Reserved:


“The new album comes after John had some serious health issues in 2018, forcing him to cancel some of his live shows, but after a well-earned rest John is now firmly back in familiar surroundings. The album starts off with What Have I Done Wrong, a blues tidal wave featuring legendary blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa’s unmistakable, seemingly never-ending solo, which also features on Delta Hurricane. We get similar blues noodlings with the Moon Is Full and The Hurt Inside, featuring young blues player Larry McCray and Evil And Here To Stay featuring Alex Lifeson of Rush fame. The album boasts an absolute legend of blues/rock guitarists Todd Rundgren, founding member of 1960s fuzz guitar heroes The Nazz. We also get multi-instrumentalist Carolyn Wonderland who features on 3 numbers, and finally one of the most distinctive faces and guitar players in the world, Steven Van Zandt from The E Street Band, gets to play some delightful guitar on It’s So Tough, making the final piece of this album’s jigsaw fit perfectly. The album is undoubtedly a who’s who of the current state of the premier blues players in the world, making it an essential purchase for all blues fans”. Quoted from / All Rights Reserved:

“This is a thing of beauty. Bjorn Eriksson (gtrs, vcs) and Nathalie Delcroix (vcs) rank among Belgium’s finest artists. They can always be found in Americanaland, but in this particular instance they’ve immersed themselves chin-deep in  Louisiana – tunes, lyrics, additional sound effects, instruments, and a double helping of Cajun French to complete the picture. ‘Riverside Hotel’ is the couple’s fifth album in as many years, with seven new compositions and three full-blooded Cajun traditionals. The disc kicks off with the up-tempo ‘Louisiana Hot’, with Nathalie Delcroix’s high, crystal-clear voice being sustained by a pounding rhythm section which is in complete harmony with the accordion and sharp guitar chops. It ends with chirping crickets, allowing the listener to visualize Louisiana and the swampy, hot location of the Riverside Hotel. Similar local sounds are spread all over the record. There is something compelling, repetitive about this track – akin to the Mississippi blues buzz drone. This discrete thread holds everything together and eventually defines the pattern, in this case an almost haunting atmosphere – as in ‘Elizi, Ursule, Erzulie-Ge-Rouge’.  Still, this is a happy, at times funny album you can sing along with or dance to.
It is remarkable how all the instruments (the duo chartered an extra six top musicians!) are interwoven on each track, whether authentic Cajun (‘La Dance de Mardi Gras’) or rockin’ blues (‘Flat Earth Blues’), resulting into a homogeneous sound. Equally remarkable is that Ericksson wrote the lyrics after a trip to the Deep South with this drummer Alain Rylant.
A truly authentic and professional piece of work”.
