Marlon Grisham on Blake

Marlon Grisham - Queen of the City (Blake 2-222), ca. 1966

Both the label and the artist have covered on this blog before. Blake Records was owned by John Cook. This record by Marlon Grisham is from around 1966 but I didn't even know it exists until recently, when I purchased it. Grisham is most famous for his 1959 Cover recording "Ain't That a Dilly" but also recorded a fair amount of other songs on Memphis labels. I have no info on his career after 1966 but I know he died around 2004. His last residence was in Corinth, Mississippi.
