Charlie Gracie: Live At Stockton Globe 1957 (CD)
Charlie Gracie - Live at the Stockton Globe - SKR1547 Reissue of the Rollercoaster Records 12' Vinyl, released in 1996 as a CD on Schoolkids Records. From the sleeve notes: Good quality live recordins of 50's stars in their chart topping heydey are very rare indeed.
This is one of only a handful of such recordings in existence. Cherish it. In addition, we have included two Bonus studio tracks, recorded in Philadelphia in 1970. These Bonus tracks, Ling Ting Tong and Dream, have never before been released! We would like to thank Charlie Gracie for allowing Schoolkids' to release the tracks

Charlie Gracie, born on May 14, 1936, in Philadelphia, as Charles Graci, first recorded rockabilly for Cadillac and 20th Century in 1953-6 with limited success. In 1957, 'Butterfly' made the Top Ten on Cameo. An enormously consmercial piece of rock'n'roll, it was written by Bernie Lowe and Kalmann, and credited to the producer of American Bandstand, Tony Mammarella, under the pseudonym of Anthony September.
Other big sellers, 'Fabulous', `I Love You So Much It Hurts' and, in Britain, Wanderin' Eyes', led to a part in Disc Jockey Jamboree. One of the few rock'n' rollers to be praised by The Tittles of London, much was made of the fact that Gracie was a proficient guitarist. He subsequently recorded for Coral, Roulette, Felsted, President, Diamond and, in 1968, Sock'n'Soul, but he has never made an album, and some sort of re-packaging of his singles is long overdue.
