Title : Plays Songs That Sold A Million. Record Condition : Excellent. Genre: JazzStyle: Big Band/SwingArtist: Harry James.
Listen to albums and songs from Harry James. James started his own band in 1939 and, although he endured a period of hardship, ultimately caught fire by sweetening his hard swinging style; soon after, he became the preeminent bandleader of the '40s. James always employed top musicians (Buddy Rich, "Stuff" Smith) and vocalists (Frank Sinatra, Dick Haymes, Helen Forrest), and became a Hollywood presence after marrying the leggy actress Betty Grable
Writers: James, Alonzo Miller Producer: James Released: Aug. '81, Gordy 24 weeks; No. 16. James wasn't exactly modest about his ambitions. As he declared in 1981, "I wanna make Paul McCartney white-boy money!" He got it with the self-described "punk funk" of "Super Freak," from his breakthrough album, Street Songs. James enlisted the Temptations for background vocals. The song got a second life when MC Hammer jacked it for the 1990 megasmash "U Can't Touch This. Appears on: Street Songs (Motown).
