Happy birthday Millie Small (“My Boy Lollipop”) (1946). On this day 50 years ago, LSD was declared illegal in the United States.
I have never taken LSD – that I am aware of.
Recently, I have tried to find more records by Millie Small, but not even her “Greatest Hits” LP shows up in Los Angeles! She was an early Island Records artist, apparently (although my big hit single was licensed out to Fontana Records, Smash in the US). I wonder why I never ever see her LP’s? The 45’s that I’ve found are all on different labels, too.
There was rather a lot written about her in the Island Records book, from a few years back. But still I feel like I don’t know much about her, other than “My Boy Lollipop”.
