Born George Crockett, 18 September 1928, Carrollton, Mississippi
Died 15 February 1967, Chicago, Illinois The total recorded output of G.L. Crockett comprises only four singles, one of which was a minor hit. But that hit is not the recording for which he is best remembered. Nothing is known about Crockett's early years in Mississippi, except that he came in this world on September 18, 1928, according to the Social Security Death Index, and not in 1929, as most websites and a few printed sources will have us believe.
