KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are in the Los Angeles of 1963 for Jackie DeShannon's self-penned "When You Walk In The Room", produced by Dick Glasser and first released on Liberty Records...
"Jackie DeShannon was born Sharon Lee Myers in Hazel, Kentucky in 1941. She became something of a regional child star, singing country and western on the local radio by age 13 and by making her first record at 16 as Jackie Dee. I first knew this one as a hit for the English group The Searchers, it was fairly unusual back then for girl singers to have hits with their own material, but Jackie went on to write/co-write quite a few for herself and others.
In 1964, she opened for The Beatles on their first U.S.Tour with a band that included Ry Cooder. Ten years later she would co-write and be the first to record the song "Bette Davis Eyes"." - KV
