“The Land Of Earl”
Eugene Drake Dixon was born July 6, 1937 in Chicago, Illinois. In January of 1962 he would have his first Top 40 hit. This particular song would debut on the KEWB Top 40 in the Bay Area at #1 (it would also be #1 on the Billboard Top 40). Eugene Dixon would become Gene Chandler and soon Gene Chandler would become “The Duke Of Earl”
Now we continue our journey through the mythical Land Of Earl. This next song would be Gene Chandler’s follow up record to The Duke Of Earl. This song would debut on the Billboard Top 100 in April of 1962, peaking at #91. Have you heard “Walk On With The Duke” by The Duke Of Earl?
Linda Galloway, Sheila Galloway, Mary Meade and Priscilla Kennedy would form a group in Los Angeles, California and they would continue our musical journey through the Land Of Earl. They were The Pearlettes and their record was from March of 1962 (#96). Have you heard “Duchess Of Earl” by The Pearlettes?
