Who Is It This Time?

Ethel Ennis

Spiral Records #1234
 1971 or early 1972?

Ethel Llewellyn Ennis (born November 28, 1932, in Baltimore, Maryland) began performing on the piano in high school, but her natural vocal abilities soon eclipsed those as a pianist. Embarking on a solo career, she recorded a number of sides for Atlantic Records before the Lp debut, 1955's Lullabies for Losers was released by Jubilee Records. In 1957, Ennis moved to the Capitol Records label for a two-album contract, and A Change of Scenery was released. Soon after the 1958 follow-up Lp Have You Forgotten, Ennis took a six-year hiatus from recording during which she toured Europe with Benny Goodman. [Wikipedia]

This is one of few singles she recorded in New York for Gladys Shelley's Spiral Records in the early seventies.

  1. She also recorded that terrific Shirley Bassey-like theme from Rankin-Bass' "Mad Monster Party" which finally got released on CD several years ago.
