Eye Langley Boy
Jimmy Morrison Awaits Call
To Sing Two Original Songs

By RED ROBINSON
(Vancouver Sun Sept. 12, 1958)

   Young Jimmy Morrison, the  lad who started his show business career in Vancouver at the Orpheum Theatre last April when he won a contest for singing against 15 competitors, is on his way to stardom.
   Two American record companies are interested in the boy's talents and don't be surprised if soon he is signed to sing two original songs, "Ready to Rock" and "The Lost Ones."
   These songs were written for Jimmy by the leader of the Centennial Bandstand Show, Gerry Fiander.
   Jimmy, who appears mostly with the Centennial Bandstand Show, has played in front of more than 50,000 people since January of this year.
   It's too bad that local talent goes unheralded as it does.  This lad has two local fan clubs with thousands of faithful followers.
   He is seventeen and a senior at Langley High School.
   He is a flexible entertainer and does not restrict himself to rock and roll.  He admits himself that his best type of song is a ballad.
   Just recently Jimmy was signed for three shows on Portland TV.  He was flown to Portland to appear on the shows and has one more to do.

   In this column before it was pointed out that a new trend was apparent in the music industry.  This trend was referred to as jazz-a-billy.
   The evidence of this trend is brought forward now with the recent recording of "Topsy," with Cozy Cole banging out a two-minute drum solo.
   This song is one of the biggest hits in the nation.  It's hard to fathom but nevertheless it's there in black and white to see for yourself.
    Cozy Cole, one of the all-time great drum beaters, played with Louis Armstrong and Count Basie and has made the trend solid with this strong jazz bidder.
   Three years ago a small company, and now one of the top five record companies in the United States.  That's the short story of Randy Woods' Dot Record Company.  Just this week Dot signed more talent to its roster.  These stars include Don Cornell, formerly with Coral, Bob Crosby and Steve Allen formerly with Coral, and John Wayne's son, Pat Wayne.
