HASH(0x8af5942c) out of 5 stars One Of Two Marvin & Johnny CDs You'll Need To Get All 4 Sides Of Their Two 1953/54 R&B Hits 16 Nov. 2015
By George O'Leary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The R&B duo of Marvin & Johnny had two of their singles make the national charts in 1953 and 1954, and to get both and their B-sides in a quality CD setting, collectors will need to purchase the only two such CDs covering their music currently in existence. Initially consisting of Marvin Phillips (born in Guthrie, Oklahoma on October 23, 1931) and Emory “Johnny” Perry (born in Sherman, Texas on March 1, 1928), their first came in December 1953 when the Phillips-penned Baby Doll went to # 9 b/w I’m Not A Fool as Specialty 479. You’ll find both sides in the 1995 Specialty CD “Flipped Out.” Compiled and produced by Billy Vera, and with liner notes by Richie Reicheg, the AAD sound reproduction is first rate.

With the hit and flipside you also get these non-nationally-charting singles, not all of which were “Marvin & Johnny”: Wine Woogie and Old Man’s Blues - Specialty 445 in early 1952 billed as Marvin Phillips & The Men From Mars; Dream Girl - Specialty 447 - 1952 billed as Jesse & Marvin - the Jesse being Jesse Belvin - a # 2 R&B in the Jan-March stretch of 1953 - the flipside, Daddy Loves Baby, is not included; As Long As You're Satisfied and Sun Is Shining - Hollywood 405 - Feb 1953 billed as Marvin & The Red Callender Sextet; Jo Jo and How Long She Been Gone? - Specialty 488 - Jan 1954 billed as Marvin & Johnny & The Mars Men; Boy Loves Girl and School Of Love - Specialty 498 - 1954 billed as Marvin & Johnny; Day In - Day Out and Flip - Specialty 530 - 1954 billed as Marvin & Johnny & The Mars Men; Mamo Mamo and Ding Dong Baby - Specialty 554 - 1955 billed as Marvin & Johnny & The Mars Men. Tracks 5, 10, 11, 13 and 16 are 1953 unreleased sides, track 18 is an unreleased side recorded in 1955, and 23 to 26 are unreleased from 1956 sessions. Track 20 is a Hunter Hancock (famous L.A. DJ) radio add featuring the duo.

Their second and last nationally-charting single as a duo came in Sept 1954 when the Joe Josea-penned Tick Tock also finished at # 9 R&B b/w the Jules Taub-Josea-penned Cherry Pie as Modern 933, both backed by the Marvin Phillips Orchestra. The B-side would become an April 1960 # 11 Billboard Pop Hot 100 and # 27 R&B for another duo - Skip (Clyde Battin) & Flip (Gary Paxton) at Brent Records. Both sides of the Marvin & Johnny hit are in the 2004 Ace CD “Cherry Pie” which also has their usual excellence in sound reproduction and extensive liner notes by Jim Dawson. In this one you also get these non-nationally-charting singles, again not all of them by “Marvin & Johnny”: Forever - Modern 818 - 1950 - billed as Richard Lewis & The Barons (Marvin Phillips at lead) - the flipside, Believe In Me, is not included; Kiss Me ( Baby) and Sugar - Modern 941 - 1954; Honey Girl and Little Honey - Modern 946 - 1954; Ko Ko Mo and Sometimes I Wonder - Modern 949 - 1955; Baby, Won't You Marry Me? And I Love You, Yes I Do - Modern 952 - 1955; Butterball and Sugar Mama - Modern 959 - 1955; Sweet Dreams snd Will You Love Me? - Modern 968 - 1955; Let Me Know and Ain’t That Right? - Modern 974 - 1955; Wonderful, Wonderful One and Yes I Do - Modern 982 - 1956 - both Marvin Phillips solos; Tell Me Darling and Have Mercy Miss Percy - Modern 993 - 1956 both solos billed as Long Tall Marvin. At track 6 is Dear One which came out in 1965 as Kent 436 but by now the role of Marvin had been taken over since 1963 by Marvin’s nephew Sheridan Spencer. The flipside, Baby You’re The One, is not included.

Track 27 is an unreleased take, tracks 9, 16 and 28 are from the 1963 Crown LP “Isley Brothers & Marvin & Johnny” (Crown 5352) while tracks 19 and 22 are from the 1963 Crown LP “Marvin & Johnny” (Crown 5381), by which time Spencer was performing as Marvin. Others who functioned as “Johnny” over the years include Carl Green, James Barker, Bobby Sheen, Don Julian, Ron Shy and Johnny Starks, although it’s hard to pin down exactly when.

For the record, in addition to I Wanna and Sweet Potato, the other tracks from the 1963 “Marvin & Johnny” Crown LP involving the new duet are: Cherry Pie; Ain't That Right?; Tell Me Darling; Sometimes I Wonder; Tick Tock; Mercy Miss Percy; Dear One; Will You Love Me?
HASH(0x8af82d68) out of 5 stars " OF ALL R&B DUO'S, THIS ONE IS HEAD'S ABOVE THE OTHERS !!! " 24 Aug. 2012
By Dan Celli,X,DJ.Cartoonist/Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Every track is excellent in my opinion. It's not just,"Cherry Pie"&"Tick Tock" that's top's, but,everything else here is equal in quality or a close second. No matter which Johnny is singing with the great deep baritone voice of Marvin Philips,they blend into one sound with M.P. having a little more volume. Rhythm section;piano,bass,drums, guitar,one or 2 tenor saxes,sometimes a bigger group. Emory Perry for most of the time was M.P."s Johnny which at time's played his tenor sax on some of the tunes. Sometimes a melody would be the same as a previous song with different lyric's. A bonus is the silky voice of jessie Belvin on some of the tracks. I remember hearing a 3rd voice on one of the track's. M.P. sing's solo on at least one or 2 track's. Just his voice alone is great. "Ko Ko Mo" was written by Forest Gene Wilson of Gene&Eunice a very good R&B Duo (They harmonized, unlike Shirley& Lee, which was also a good group in their way which I saw perform on stage in 55'.) Just a few of my favorite ballad's are :"Wonderful,Wonderful One","Dear One", "Sweet Dreams" + more great love ballad's with simple lyric's here.
Lot's of information in the booklet from a 1993 interview with Marvin Philips. 28 track's. 70:58 This CD, is a "Wonderful,Wonderful One".

I especially like the song Cherry Pie and wanted more of Marvin and Johnny for my early R&R and blues collection.

"Cherry Pie" is the only reason to buy this record; the rest is dross. But their version of "Cherry Pie" is absolutely superior to Skip and Flip's cover, which is the version most people know.
