Sunny Side Of The Street

Ricky Dee

Sunny Side Of The Street

Jimmy McHugh-Dorothy Fields
Shapiro & Bernstein Music BMI

Trio-Tex Records 104

Div. of G-B Recordings
Line & Phila. Rd., Easton, Penna.
G-B De Case Production
Produced by Bob Seawood

Backed by a cover of "A Thousand Miles Away" (The Heartbeats, 1957).   "Sunny Side" is also a cover.  Composed in 1930, the song was a hit for Frankie Laine in 1950.  (see Wikipedia)

Certainly related to Ricky Dee and The Embers (on Newtown Records). Same producers? Same band?  But the true identity of the vocalist remain unknown.  Curiously enough THE RICKY DEE AND EMBERS was incorporated - a rare fact at the time? - as a company on 12/17/1962 by Richard Wise, 426 Clinton Terrace, Easton, Pa.  Since there is no mention of The Embers here, should we assume that this record was done at an earlier date ?
