Decca spent a small fortune in the studio on Jimmy Donley as demonstrated by the excellent quality of these recordings. Donley had huge talent as a songwriter, singer and arranger but, he was his own worst enemy. Coddled by his mother but abused by his alcoholic father Donley started work at fourteen unloading the banana boats in New Orleans. Drinking was his downfall - it was said that he was only violent when he was drunk but he was drunk most of the time. His raw talent attracted beautiful women and he married six times - all disastrously but their inspiration lives on in these songs. His sister said that when she visited their dying father at the VA hospital, eight years after Donley's​ suicide, the doctor said his conscience is killing him but we have nothing for that.
