Sales Information:

Earl Lett was born in 1945 and grew up in Monroeville, Alabama. His musical career started after his demobilization in 1961 when he went back to Massachusetts to go on tour with his first professional circuit band: Earl Lett & the Blendaires.

While on the road playing venues along the chitlin' circuit the band landed the possibility to record their first 45rpm single in Plattsburgh, NY (Monkey's tail b/w You're the one for me, Empire Rec., 1964). When Earl and his band held a residency in a club in New York, a producer from South Africa heard them and offered an engagement in Tunisia. In 1967, not long after his return to Massachusetts he released his second 45 (Do The Thing b/w Now Is The Time) on the small Boston record label Wild Records. In 1969 Earl decided that it is time to start his own label: Beantown Records. He soon released his debut 45 (Soul sax b/w The boston puppy) but went straight to Europe to play there for one and a half years.

Upon his return to the USA he accidentally landed a spot in Ike & Tina Turner's Kings of Rhythm band. Earl toured with Ike for one year, then he moved to Boston to study sax at the Berkeley School of Music. In the following years he kept releasing his music on Beantown, including his one and only full-length studio album titled Love Serenade.
