Marvin Phillips

Rhythm & Blues Profile

Marvin PhillipsThe Friday Night Cat Fight features its FIRST EVER profile of an artist and I can’t think of someone more deserving of this inaugural honor than the much under-appreciated MARVIN PHILLIPS.

He began his career with Richard Lewis & The Barons.  He then sang for a time in Big Jay McNeely’s vocal group, Three Dots And A Dash before hooking up with friend Jesse Belvin as Jesse & Marvin.  They were the first successful vocal duo in rhythm & blues and their #2 R&B hit, “Dream Girl” remains a classic.  This program features Marvin Phillips’ time with Marvin & Johnny as well as his work as a solo artist. This show is for anyone who enjoyed my old “Harlem” show on XM Satellite Radio.  I am very proud to shine a light on the very underrated talents of Marvin Phillips.

I hope you enjoy this labor of love and will vote for your favorite version of “Cherry Pie” below.

    Yeah, there’s nothing fair about the music business. The fame and fortune doesn’t always fall to the most deserving.

    Marvin, I hope you’re out there still and get to hear this tribute show and read the comments and feel some overdue love. Thanks, man.
