DOUG DAVIDSON – Star (Of My Teenage Dream) (MOA, 1959)

Announcing a new post over at the Shreveport Songs blog...

On July 17, 2012, Margaret Lewis will be feted by the Mystic Knights of the Mau Mau (aka the Ponderosa Stomp Foundation) at the New Orleans Mint.  Details of this show/interview can be found on the Ponderosa Stomp website, along with a few informative posts on their blog, plus a video overview of Lewis’ rich musical career.  Check the link below to navigate to these sources.

Lewis and her sister, Rose, sang backup vocals on a handful of 45’s recorded in Shreveport in the late 1950’s/early 1960’s.  In some instances, the record labels contained credits identifying “the Lewis Sisters.”  Today’s offering does not, though its flipside does…just to make things complicated and inconsistent.  Credit or no credit, the Lewis sisters can be heard underneath the scratches on both sides of this record.  Here’s the side I prefer – “Star (Of My Teenage Dream).”
