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.
