Originally released in 1986, this digital re-release of the 7" 'Pop Jazz' single Charlie So Good gained sudden and unexpected mass airplay across the UK when first put out, so much so that the label could not supply the demand of the record stores and sadly a Top 20 hit was lost.
The record though made its mark for writer and performer Debbie Curtis with national media attention and interviews.
The song, about Charlie Parker, features a terrific sax solo from Neil Woodcock and also has the late Eddie Curtis (Debbie's Dad) on Trombone.
Charlie So Good went to No1 on the 'Voice Of Peace' radio station off the coast of Israel and a Royal Navy ship even adopted Debbie as their Mascot!
Debbie made many personal appearances performing the song, as well as giving radio interviews and appearing on numerous talk shows across the UK.
The 7" vinyl record is now a sought after collectors item.
The B Side, Anything Can Shake Your Tree, is also available as a digital single.
Debbie continued to record and release singles and albums, and still does, perhaps most famously with The Debbie Curtis Big Band & Swing Orchestra. You will find everything at her website http://www.debbiecurtis.co.uk
Get them at iTunes Amazon Spotify & CD Baby etc
Debbie's first recording studio experience was at 15, the late great Alvin Lee of Ten Years After & Woodstock Fame played guitar on the recordings with her then band Platinum Blonde, the tracks are tucked up safely in Debbie's archive.
