Danny Ross on Minor 104



Danny Ross - You're Not in Love / Why Did I Doubt You (Minor 104)

"You're Not in Love"



"Why Did I Doubt You"



Danny Ross's earliest known record was spotlighted back in August, 2009 (heard here). This was his second release, probably recorded at Gold Star in Houston and essentially a Starday record with a different label on it. Why Starday didn't sign this guy, I have no idea. Billboard gave it two thumbs up on September 29, 1956, stating that "You're Not in Love" had "a lot of imagination in treatment" and could "sell handily in its field," but a few local spins was all it got.

*Minor 101 has still yet to be run to earth.
