Who was/is Kenny Loran ? - CDs, Vinyl LPs, DVD and more
Best known for his 1959 rocker I Chickened Out, Kenny Loran first surfaced the year before on L.A.-based Challenge Records with the relaxed Lonely Boy (its flip Change Of Love was a bit livelier). With Nelson at the A&R helm, Loran waxed I Chickened Out and its B-side Stop Me in May of ’59 at Capitol Tower on Vine Street, as well as his Capitol encore Mama’s Little Baby (a Shortnin’ Bread derivation) b/w Magic Star (the latter sounded like East Coast doo-wop). Nelson gave Loran a last shot on October 5, 1959 at the Tower with Roy Lanham and Scotty Turner on guitars, pianist Dudley Brooks, and Hal Blaine on drums. The sleek Top Man came from an unexpected source: labelmates Ira and Charlie Louvin. It constituted half of Loran’s Capitol farewell, along with Look Who’s Lonely.
