The very first official release on the Argo label was “Let Me Be The First To Know” by Savannah Churchill, who was born on August 21, 1920 and died on April 19, 1974. She was a successful American singer of pop, jazz, and blues music in the 1940s and 1950s. Her real name was Savannah Valentine. Wikipedia records: “Tragedy struck later in 1956 to end her career. She was singing on stage in a club, when a drunken man fell on top of her from a balcony above, causing severe debilitating injuries from which she would never fully recover. Although she did some recording in 1960, her health declined greatly until her death in 1974, at the age of 53.”
