Sure Cure For The Blues by Shirley Haven & The Four Jacks, 1952
Song of the Week #007
A spirited song with lots of lovely energy by the Four Jacks, who consisted of Ellison White (bass), Bowling Mansfield (1st tenor), Buell Thomas (2nd tenor), and George Comfort (baritone). They recorded a half-dozen recordings in a ten-month period for Ralph Bass' Federal Records in the early 1950s.
They were joined here by California-born actress Shirley Haven. Shirley tried for a movie career in Hollywood but talent scouts told her she could not get movie roles because she "did not look Negro enough." After getting nothing but extras jobs, she gave up and joined Charles Brown's orchestra on a Southern tour. She also toured with the first black USO troupe to entertain the troops fighting in Korea.
