THE!!!! BEAT VOL.4
SHOW #17 (YEAR 1966)
7. JAMO THOMAS - I SPY (FOR THE F.B.I)
HE WAS ORIGINALLY FROM THE BAHAMAS WHERE HE MADE A NAME FOR HIMSELF AS A CONGA DRUMMER, BUT RELOCATED TO THE U.S IN THE EARLY 1960'S TO GET INTO RHYTHM & BLUES. HE RECORDED I'LL BE YOUR FOOL B/W JAMAICA SOUL FOR CHESS RECORDS, BUT HIS BIGGEST SUCCESS WAS WITH CHICAGO'S THOMAS LABEL IN THE MID 1960'S. HIS FIRST RECORD FOR THEM, THE LUTHER INGRAM PENNED 'I SPY FOR THE F.B.I' B/W SNAKE HIP MAMA, WAS A HIT IN 1966. THE RECORD WAS FIRST RELEASED BY THOMAS RECORDS, LEASED TO THE MOJO LABEL AND WAS EVENTUALLY PICKED UP FOR WORLDWIDE RELEASE TO POLYDOR RECORDS. HE RECORDED TWO MORE 45'S FOR THOMAS, ARREST ME B/W SNAKE HIP MAMA (ALSO RELEASED BY CONLO RECORDS) AND LET'S PARTY B/W STOP THE BABY, BEFORE LANDING AT SOUND STAGE 7 RECORDS IN NASHVILLE IN THE LATE 1960'S. HE RECORDED TWO RECORDS THERE 'JIVE MOTHER IN LAW B/W NASSAN DADDY AND BAHAMA MAMA PARTS 1 & 2 BUT NEITHER WAS A HIT, SO WAS DROPPED BY THE LABEL. WITHOUT A BIG HIT OR RECORDING CONTRACT, HE WAS UNABLE TO SUSTAIN HIS MUSICAL CAREER AND EVENTUALLY RETIRED FROM SHOW BUSINESS. CREDIT INFO FROM THE BOOKLET THAT CAME WITH THE DVD.
