ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I will never forget the first time I heard him sing. I had heard great things about him, but when I reached the age of entry into nightclubs, he had left the area. Then one night after my own gig was done, I went to a very popular night spot where a renowned road band was appearing. During the packed show, the singer introduced someone from the audience to come onstage - it was G.G. Shinn. I immediately perked up to see the man walking up in the smoky haze of the spotlight. When he sang, he not only sang, he took over the entire room -the band, the crowd, the help, etc. The musician’s mouths were opened as their jaws dropped. I was mesmerized.

Whenever traveling acts came through, if G. G. was performing in town, they would hurry when their gigs were done to catch his last set. They wanted to see the incredible performer they had heard so much about throughout the country. He never disappointed.

For me, as a nineteen year old singer still in the development stages, that night I first saw him began a lifetime of hero worship for me. I went to see him every chance I could, I acquired his recordings, I studied, I learned, I emulated, and he became my mentor and my friend.

A talent like G. G. Shinn comes along maybe once in a lifetime, if at all. He should have been a household name everywhere for the last fifty years but like many others, he somehow slipped through the cracks of the star maker machinery. Here on the Gulf Coast, he remains a legend, larger than life. His voice is simply extraordinary.

To find unreleased recorded material from him is to me like discovering gold.
Gregg Martinez, leader of the Delta Kings.
