Millie Small may only be truly known as a one hit wonder for the ska song heard round the world “My Boy Lollipop” but as mentioned in previous posts she was WAY more then that.
She was a leader and trailblazer for JA women and women in general as singers and songwriters. After her major hit she went on to record for various labels including Fontana, Island, Decca and Trojan from 1963 to 1970, when she decided to leave music behind. There were many stand out tracks that have not really seen the light of day since they were issued.
Well thanks to Island and Trojan Records a plan has been launched to correct that oversight and give some well needed rounding to this wonderful songstress and performer.
Trojan Records is looking for anything Millie related such as any interesting recollections or memories of the singer, pictures, label scans and the like. Contact them at [email protected]
