HANDFUL OF FRIENDS * PAT SATCHMO * UNKNOWN * JA
Pat 'Satchmo', a.k.a. 'Young Satchmo', was, as the name suggests, the singing doppelganger of the innovative cornet player and vocalist Louis 'Satchmo' Armstrong 1901 - 1971. Pat Satchmo recorded many of Louis Armstrong's later songs, including Hello Dolly for Lee Perry and Wonderful World for Rupie Edwards, both of which were issued in the UK on the Punch label. The above was cut for Derrick Harriott and released in Great Britain on the Song Bird label # 1039. It was the case, back in the late 1960s, that the songs of the great artist Louis Armstrong were considered well duff by those who thought they were musically 'clued up', like me, and not by those who were 'clued up', like, possibly, Sir K. B. a previous owner of this record.
