30 June 1941, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. Larry Hall was responsible for one Top 20 hit, 1960s Sandy. He first recorded the Terry Fell composition in 1959 for the tiny Hot 1 label. The rocking number went nowhere until the New York-based Strand label picked it up for distribution and the single went to number 15 in the US. Hall recorded another single, A Girl Like You, but it failed to chart. His subsequent efforts for the label also met with little response and after a few singles for the Gold Leaf label, Hall disappeared from the music scene. The one album he recorded for Strand, Sandy And Other Larry Hall Hits, is a valuable collectors item.
