GRANT HIGGINS - The Way I Feel


























GRANT HIGGINS - 'The Way I Feel'/'Shame Shame' (Limelight Y-3036) Oct 1964

I don't know anything about Grant Higgins so any information will be welcome. I've checked some reference guides and this 45 was also released on Karen Records.

The flip side, 'The Way I Feel' is a Grant Higgins original and is an early attempt at Invasion beat. The Jimmy Reed cover, 'Shame Shame' is a harmonica heavy R'n'B swinger more akin to early Rolling Stones than The Beatles..

DJ/Producer Ollie McLaughlin is credited on the label. He was based in Ann Arbour, Michigan. So perhaps Grant Higgins is from this region.

  1. Grant Higgins was from Adrian, Michigan. The 1st label for this release was Karen #320. Limelight re-released both songs in October, 1964.

    Grant had at least one other 45, on the Twirl label.
