Chanteur Rhythm 'n' Blues US né en 1929 à Carrollton (Mississippi). G.L.Crockett nous laisse un étonnant Rockabilly enregistré en 1957 chez Chief Records. G.L.Crockett est décédé le 15 Février 1967 à Chicago (Illinois).

There exists a lone black and white publicity photo of G.L. Crockett that looks like many an R&B performer photo from the mid-1960s; a sleepy-eyed countenance wedded to what appears to be a smirk, hand on chin, a shiny suit and an immaculate pompadour "conk job" hairdo to complete the image. We delve into the mystery of this photo because when it comes to hard information on G.L. Crockett, there really isn't much else to go on. As far as blues research tells us, he lived in the Washington, D.C. area during the 1960s. Despite having a Top Ten hit on the R&B charts with "It's a Man Down There" on the tiny Four Brothers label in 1965, he apparently died without ever submitting to an interview. As he seemingly left behind a recorded legacy of only three and a half singles, a full-career retrospective would fall short of being able to fill up a single compact disc. But the music he left behind has kept his name alive among the collectors of Black rockabilly and rock & roll, a subgenre not exactly bursting at the seams.
