Misty Moore Pzazz

Misty Moore Little Things Pzazz

Misty Moore Don't Mail The Letter Pzazz

I continue with my soft spot for 60s femme recordings. This time I am featuring Misty Moore. I have no biographical details but have gleaned the following releases from on Pzazz by her from Soulful Kinda Music:

010 - Misty Moore - Can't Believe You're Gone / Little Things - 1968
013 - Misty Moore - Magnifico / More Than The Eye Can See - 1968
018 - Misty Moore - Children Listen / Just Another Piece Of Paper - 1968
032 - Misty Moore - Don't Mail The Letter / Windy Curtains - 1969
036 - Misty Moore - Wherefore And Why / Hello Hello Hello - 1969
048 - Misty Moore - Chicago Over The Rise / It Ain't Me Babe - 1969

LP 322 Girls In Love With You

I must admit I like Misty's Petula Clark sounding voice and Little Things has always been a popular dancer on a label which is very collectable.

The Pzazz label according to Waxidermy:

Was a label founded as a retirement project for Paul Gayten, a noted New Orleans R&B pianist/bandleader/producer/singer-songwriter/record man who’d been a key component to the success of Clarence “Frogman” Henry, “Sugar Boy” Crawford, and Fats Domino’s career, he had done a million other things as well, including working A&R for Chess…Once he moved to LA in his later years, Pzazz was his bid to stay active from 1968-1978…He died in 1991.

There are several good 45s on the Pzazz label:

Fortson & Scott Sweet Lover
Sinceres Girl, I Love You
Lorez Alexandria Didn't We
Robert Fortson Are You For Real
Pimbrock Skiggs That Was Yesterday

and my all time fave Len Jewell All My Good Lovin'


  1. But the REAL hidden gem is the B side of the Len Jewell 45. Midtempo crossover heaven as heavenly as you like!
