George Brown on De'Besth

George Brown and the High Notes

De'Besth 1125

CP-2695 ~ Ninety-Nine Years And One Dark Day

CP-2696 ~ Who Said Fred Was Dead

George Gary Brown was born in Georgia and raised in Florida, he's been singing since the age of 2. Other than that, nothing much is known of his biography. He recorded as Gary Brown for Venus Records (part of the Chicagoan One-derful label complex) and for (his own?) Brownie label.

One of his composition ("First Man to the Moon") was selected by Calvin Carter for the flip side of The Deltones ' "A Lover's Prayer" (Vee-Jay 303).

De'Besth Records was owned by Samuel D. Starr and located in Hammond, Indiana. The Five Crowns (Hillum Bay/I Want You) is the rarest on the label and one of the rarest on Earth and was also pressed by Rite Records.
