(2-CD set) This Double CD features Ken Griffin who was born December the 28th 1909 in Columbia, Missouri. He was an exponent of the Hammond and Wurlitzer organs. His biggest hit was “You Can’t Be True, Dear” (1948), (a Version of which appears on these CDs) which was first released as an instrumental, and later that year re-released with a vocal by Jerry Wayne dubbed in. Both versions became popular, selling over 3.5 million copies. He also starred in a 1954-55 syndicated television series, “67 Melody Lane”. He recorded on a variety of record labels including Columbia and Rondo. It was in the 1940s in Aurora, Illinois that Griffin broke into the nightclub circuit, playing at the Rivoli Cafe nightly. The sessions at the Rivoli cafe were broadcast on the radio station, WMRO, and the program became popular. Griffin’s version of “Ebb Tide” was played in the fifth season premiere of the popular TV drama series “Mad Men”.
