Parade Of Broken Hearts
Don’t Make Me Over
I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself
Tommy Hunt did the original versions of these tracks on his LP before other artists had the hits. Dusty Springfield had a big hit with I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself which got to number 3 in the British charts. The song had an odd genesis. First recorded by Chuck Jackson whose vocal replaced Tommy Hunt, it wasn’t released. Then it was re-recorded using Tommy Hunt but failed to chart.
The lead singer for the Flamingos on Boogaloo Party was Tommy Hunt. He was born in Pittsburgh, on the 18th June 1933. In 1953 he was lead singer in his first group, the Five Echoes. In 1958 he was at End Records as part of The Flamingos. The song Boogaloo Party became an anthem at Manchester soul clubs, The Twisted Wheel and The Blue Note.
