Ronnie White

BRENT 7075Only the superb Lon Rogers 45 can offer any competition to this beauty from Ronnie Whitehead as the best Mike Lenneburg production from his Phoenix, AZ base. The very young sounding 14 year old Whitehead, who became “Ronnie White” on the song’s release, screams and hollers his way through this simple song to great effect. On ListenBegging You he is accompanied by only a rhythm section and a cooing female chorus – but that sparseness is part of this track’s charm. The flip is a pretty good funk item.

This was leased out to veteran record man Bob Shad’s Brent label and was to be Ronnie’s only name 45.


ListenBegging you / Out of breath ~ BRENT 7075 (1967)

Note ~ You can find both sides of this 45, and the unissued funk track "Cold Feet" on the Numero Uno Eccentric Soul CD "The Mighty Mike Lenaburg".
