Today 1938 Dave 'baby' Cortez born

Dave 'baby' Cortez (born David Cortez Clowney, 13 August 1938, Detroit, Michigan) is an American pop music and R&B pianist and organist.
David Clowney made his first record in 1956 under his own name (David Clowney ft Pearls - Soft lights, I have it) but it was not until 3 years later that he scored a major success using the stage name Dave 'baby' Cortez. His instrumental The Happy Organ was the first pop/rock hit to feature the electronic organ as lead instrument with Gary Hammond as drummer. The 45rpm single went to #1 on Billboard magazine's Hot 100 chart. In 1962 he had another Top 10 hit with Rinky Dink, the famous (Radio North Sea International tune).....

My 'preview' can be found in the comments.

Note : full screen window gives you the best view of the comments !

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Link :
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.

Pass to extract the file : 080812
The file is a small 45MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate 128kbits.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that : check 'My opinion about bitrates' on 2008_jan_25.

The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.
When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !
Direct link (after that go to the plain comment of this 2008_august article !) : JeansMusicBlog
Also possible : just click the 'post a comment' section here and you are able to copy/paste !

....And while you are there you might as well give a comment yourself....
Great Stuff. Thanks Jean.
