Will You Ever Be Mine, Donnie Willis (1960)
“The music business is full of crooks and thieves and people who’d stab their mothers for a dollar. And then there’s the downside.”
At 19, Donnie Willis co-founded the Vibra-Harps in 1955 and went solo in 1957, recording dozens of records for many labels and writing hundreds of songs during his career. Willis had first-hand experience getting cheated by record companies and partners in the music business, but found greater success as a “Northern Soul” artist in the UK. Eventually he got sick of it and quit.
