Danny Pearson (January 6, 1953 – August 17, 2018) received attention at the end of the 70s with his only album “Barry White Presents Mr. Danny Pearson”.
SoulDisco conducted a telephone interview with the then 63 year old in 2016. Unfortunately, a final article could never be completed due to Danny’s severe illness. It was very important for us that the story of Danny would be told anyway, by himself in his own words. The recording you hear was made on the occasion of the telephone interview, and was never originally intended for publication. Therefore, the audio quality is not optimal. We are grateful, his family for approving this interview to be released.
The lead single from his only album, “What’s Your Sign Girl?”, peaked at #16 on the U.S. R&B charts and at #106 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hits. At the time of his death, he was in the process of recording a new album. As far as we now these recordings are not supposed to be released any time, soon.
