Earl Nelson - alias Jackie Lee - transitioned over from Doo-Wop to Soul quite nicely.

Finishing up a week of Deep Soul with Jackie Lee, who recorded a string of hits for Mirwood Records in the early-mid 1960's. Lee was the alias for Earl Nelson who rose to fame as half of the team Bob and Earl (Harlem Shuffle). This one features Delores Hall, who would go on to later fame as a solo artist and actress.

Tonight's track is from 1966, Whether It's Right Or Wrong puts the Deep Soul genre in a duet mode, with Lee and Hall trading proclamations of love and optimism.

Ending up the week on a hopeful note.
