Belvin can be found on some of the best R&B records of the '50s, either as a writer or as a performer. But, because he died young (in a tragic 1960 car crash), Belvin is not as well remembered as such contemporaries as Sam Cooke. This excellent overview of his work at Specialty Records (also Cooke's label at the time) is a fascinating time capsule.
Belvin was the quintessential R&B journeyman, facile in a multitude of styles. THE BLUES BALADEER is essentially a grab bag of doo-wop, jump blues, ballads, and flat out rock & roll. Nearly a third of the tracks here are previously unreleased outtakes. Most memorable moments include "Dream Girl" and "Daddy Loves Baby," on which Belvin switches from keening tenor to a narcoleptic baritone that sounds like a Spike Jones parody of Billy Eckstine.
