    some good & memorable music from this singer/entertainer. Brings back fond memories from the 'baby boomer' generation of the 60s & 70s. God bless~!

    Trying to find JJ. He knows me from The 450 in Northridge CA. Morris and Pete O also know me. He can email me at dresserfrank@triad.rr.com He is one of the best entertainers I have known. He might remember a birthday cake and cupcakes we made for him years ago. I also wear a Cadillac Emblem.

    Despite the less than flattering end of the description of J.J. written above, "But It's Alright" is still a fantastic song.
