Donald Jenkins – I’ve Settled Down – Cortland


Only 1 left in stock

Donald Jenkins formed the group in 1955, but was called the Fortunes, and comprised Donald Jenkins, Walter Granger and Ronnie Strong. The group recorded for “Checker” records and “Parrot” records, but only the record on the “Chess” records subsidiary label “Checker” was released. In 1962, Jenkins joined up with Strong to form a duet called Rico And Ronnie and recorded a single for “Checker” records . The following year they recorded on “Cortland” records as the Starr Brothers, releasing several singles before inviting Granger to join them in Donald And The Delighters. Jenkins at this time was also producing acts for Cortland, most notably the Versalettes. They released three records for “Cortland” records and after a succession of releases for other labels, the group had broken up by 1970. This disc from 1963 has superficial scuffs to the vinyl, whilst still retaining some gloss, playing with some light crackle and pop and some light wear to the label, conservatively graded between VG and VG+ condition. Worth checking out the flip.
