THE BEST OF PHILLY SOUL Vol. 3

Maureen Gray

 

This CD features 15 songs by the incredible artist, Maureen Gray.  Recorded between 1962 and 1964, they show Maureen's extraordinary talent at such an early age.

 

Maureen Gray began singing at the age of 3 and performed solo in a children's program at Carnegie Hall at the age of 5.  Discovered by songwriter/record producer, John Madara, at the young age of 12, she went on to record and achieve success with regional hits such as "Today's The Day," "Crazy Over You," "I Don't Want To Cry" and "Dancing The Strand," written by John Madara and partner, Dave White. 

 

Maureen went on to work with such greats as arranger, Paul Buckmaster, and sang with Billy Preston, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, David Bowie, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, just to name a few.  She continued her career as a singer/songwriter, going by the name "Girl," which originated with a group she formed called "Girl Talk."  Maureen Gray passed away on January 7, 2014.  She will be missed.  Rest in peace, Maureen.

 

This historical CD contains valuable information, when available, on the musicians who played on each song, the year the song was recorded and the studio where it was recorded.

 

This one-of-a-kind CD is presented by John Madara.  Along with partner, Dave White, he wrote and produced such timeless classics as AT THE HOP (Danny And The Juniors), THE FLY (Chubby Checker), YOU DON'T OWN ME (Leslie Gore) and 1-2-3 (Len Barry, who also co-wrote the song with Madara & White).  These and countless other hits by Madara & White helped to create "The Sound of Philadelphia."

 

All songs have been digitally restored and digitally mastered.
