Stock Status: In Stock

Jim Lowe was a disc jockey, singer and songwriter from Springfield, Missouri, who achieved a career highlight in 1956 with the US No.1 and UK No. 8 The Green Door.

Over a period of three years during the mid-1950s, he had a run of chart entries which enabled him to maintain his recording career into the 1960s before concentrating on his radio work.

This 60 tracks here include most of his A- and B-sides for the Mercury, Dot and Decca labels during this era, plus the tracks from his Mercury album Door Of Fame and his Dot album The Songs They Sing Behind The Green Door.

It naturally includes Green Door, along with all his pop, R&B and country chart entries, which include the Top 20 hits Maybellene, Four Walls and Talking To The Blues.


This collection is a real curiosity as Lowe was something of a one-off who didn't really fit into any particular category and did not establish any specific identity as a recording artist. GREEN DOOR obviously was the highpoint of his success and no doubt because of that this collection will hold appeal for those who embraced the rock revolution, although Lowe was never really part of it, as the liner notes make plain. - Gerry Stonestreet (In Tune Issue 348)
