Born To Be A Loser

It's time to recognise another lost soul with this post - I give you James Kenneth (Jimmy) Donley who comitted suicide in 1963, five years after he recorded this single on Decca records.
A definite Cajun R&B classic but like a lot of great records it fell under the radar. To find out more about Jimmy please seek out the book by Johnnie Allan & Beatrice Larson Webb titled 'Born To Be A Loser - The Jimmy Donley Story' (see below) or look out in the bargain CD bins for 'The Crazy Cajun Recordings' on the UK's EDSEL label from 1999.
