Hey! Baby - The Early Years 1959-1962


Texas-born Bruce Channel is chiefly remembered for his 1962 worldwide hit 'Hey! Baby', a disc which also featured Delbert McClinton on harmonica. He charted with follow-ups, 'Number One Man', 'Come On Baby', and 'Somewhere In This Town', while his LP, "Hey! Baby (And 11 Other Songs About Your Baby)", which also featured McClinton, is a highly sought-after collectors' item.

This unique compilation includes all of these, alongside Channel's three rare-as-hens-teeth early, pre-fame 45s, which rarely turn up on other compilations, plus a couple of non-charting late 1962 singles. Included as bonus tracks are a couple of 45s recorded in the UK in 1962, whilst on tour, during the course of which he famously headlined over The Beatles at the New Brighton Tower (when McClinton allegedly taught John Lennon how to play harmonica).

The majority of the rarities and bonus tracks have never previously appeared on CD.
