Ral Donner

Born in Chicago on Feb. 10, 1943, Ralph Stuart Donner first recorded in 1958 for Scottie. Moving to New York, he signed with Gone and reached the Top Twenty with 'The Girl Of My Best Friend' (a song from Presley's Elvis Is Back album) in 1961. As Presley became more of a Neapolitan balladeer than a rock'n'roller, Donner continued to sing in the manner to which early Elvis fans had been accustomed.

His heavily stylized, hot-potato-in-the-mouth vocals smouldered through a string of blistering soul ballads. They included 'You Don't Know What You've Got' (No. 4), `Please Don't Go', 'She's Everything' (another Top Twenty hit) and 'What A Sad Way To Love Someone'. Dormer re-corded also for Tau (1960), Reprise (the fine 'I Got Burned' in 1963), Fontana (1965), Red Bird (1966), Rising Sons (where he was produced by Billy 'I Can Help' Swan in 1968), Mid Eagle, M. J. (1971) and Chicago Fire, Sunlight (1972).
