Best of Philly Soul 3
Maureen Gray: The Best of Philly Soul, Vol. 3, features 15 songs by the incredible artist, Maureen Gray. Recorded between 1962 and 1964, they show Maureen's extraordinary talent at such an early age. Maureen Gray began singing at the age of 3 and performed solo in a children's program at Carnegie Hall at the age of 5. Discovered by songwriter/record producer, John Madara, at the young age of 12, she went on to record and achieve success with regional hits such as 'Today's The Day,' 'Crazy Over You,' 'I Don't Want To Cry,' and 'Dancing The Strand,' written by John Madara and partner, Dave White. This one-of-a-kind CD is presented by John Madara, through That Philly Sound, which is dedicated to the music that came out of Philadelphia during the 50's and 60's. Madara & White wrote and produced such timeless classics as 'At The Hop' (Danny and The Juniors), 'The Fly' (Chubby Checker), '1-2-3' (Len Barry, who also co-wrote the song) and 'You Don't Own Me' (Leslie Gore). These and countless other hits by Madara & White helped to create 'The Sound of Philadelphia.'
