Jameson Booker - Sophistication (1978), Why Don't You Spend The Night (1980), Hollywood (1980)

Next up is a trio of singles from the, uh, duo of  Brian Booker and Margie Jameson, who put out a bunch of releases under the moniker Jameson Booker in the late 70s/early 80s - with their debut on Richard Harrow's Living Room Records. We've also got two singles on Edmonton's Vera Cruz records added in here for your listening pleasure.

Roman Cooney is maybe a bit cruel in his review of the band's live show (at Lucifer's!) below, but it helps paint the picture of the conundrum that faced local bands in the 70s and 80s - covers sell seats.

Get it here!

Brian, Dead yet?? Ross Barrett here.
HI! GOSH bud, you were such a prick back then. God! Inferiority Complex. Hey you were a smart guy. How has WISDOM crept into your life. Hope it has..really. I'd your old. Success in age is humble, not $$ right?

I loved Jameson Booker back in the day. No idea they were so local. Found an album on Youtube. What a great walk down memory lane. Thanks for the tunes. ❤️
