Don't Rock, Let's Roll


Paul Kosty, of Greek origin I think, part-time actor (he played in Buster Ladd in 1969), singer, and prize fighter was a full-time taxi driver in Baltimore.

In his youth, in 1951, he was awarded The Teke Trophy, by the Maryland Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity - offered to the student who during his four years at the University has rendered the greatest service to football.

To the listening (?) audience, he offered numerous recordings on his own Clarity, Fleet and U-235 (?) labels. For which I'm not aware of any awards.

Here is a (probably incomplete) discography :

Clarity
1 - Dad From Trinidad / Panama Mama
6 - Dolly /Cigarette
7 - Dad From Trinidad/ Jacqueline
9 - Kostylypso / Last Cigarette
14 - Transplanted Heart/Cause Of My Troubles

Fleet
3103 - Don't Rock, Let's Roll / The Last Cigarette

U-235
U-2 - Zembekiko / This Time For Keeps

You can hear the two sides of Clarity 1, courtesy of Bob Purse, HERE.
