KIM SISTERS (김시스터즈) Charlie Brown 7 inch 45 (US) Monument 1964


KIM SISTERS (김시스터즈) Charlie Brown/Korean Spring Song (US) Monument 45-841 (1964)
Billboard 11/7/1964 mentions in an brief article that the Kim Sisters played separately with Boots Randolph at the Music Operators of America Convention the previous week. The Kim Sisters released singles on Monument between 1963 and 1966, while Boots Randolph released singles on Monument between 1961 and 1970. Thus, I assume (but don’t have evidence 100%) that the sax player on the Kim Sisters’ version of Charlie Brown is Boots Randolph (99.9 percent certainty). A link to Nashville based session musicians who most likely backed most/all of Kim Sisters singles is here: Nashville A-team.
Collectors notes:  Although a hit at the time on the Billboard charts, this single is surprisingly hard to find.
Mic’s collection status: I have this record (promo)


COASTERS Charlie Brown/Three cool cats (UK) London HLE 8819 ( March 1959)
Of course Charlie Brown was originally a Coasters song with King Curtis on sax. Written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. (The flip Three Cool Cats is GREAT too!) In my mind the original trumps all other versions. Listen and judge for yourself. Above is a label scan from a disc in my collection of original near mint 50s rock n roll/doo wop 45s on UK pressings. Link here to my post with the original version UK 7 inch and mpg of this song.
Collectors notes:  uncommon in high grade
Mic’s collection status: UK Coasters 1959 original – got it (my copy in genuinely near mint)
