Spotlight On Sylvester Bradford, Ific, Koko Mojo Records (KM-CD-198) contains thirty recordings. The songs which Sylvester Bradford did not compose or co-compose feature him as either a harmony vocalist, or pianist, and usually he undertook both roles. His only solo release for Atco Records, I Like Girls, and I Live Just To Love You are reissued for the first time, as is Vodka by The Golden Highlights. Songs benefiting from Bradford’s imaginative writing, often with the assistance from his writing partner Al Lewis include; Tears On My Pillow, (Chuck Jacksons version is featured) I’m Ready (Fats Domino), Lovin’ With A Beat (The El Tones), Walkin’ Home From School, and Right Now, (Gene Vincent and His Blue Caps). This thirty song Koko Mojo album places the spotlight on an over-looked 1950s artist, whose contribution to music needs to be acknowledged. Dee Jay Mark Armstrong Bühl, Germany
