Mamie Bradley

Mamie Bradley was spotted in a restaurant called Wells in Harlem, New York and was signed to Sue Records of New York in 1958. Chess subsequently purchased the masters of the Sue recordings.

“I feel like a million” was first released on Sue 702. The version issued on Chess 1686 is understood to be a different take.

No photos or biographical details for Ms Bradley are currently available: can anyone help, please?

Thanks to Marc for his help with this item.

    Hello,
    Sparse information on MAMIE BRADLEY
    Sue Records second signing was Mamie Bradley.She was spotted singing and playing the timbales in a restaurant called Wells to which people travelled from downtown to Harlem primarily for their famous chicken and wafles.
    Chess purchased the masters of the SUE recording.It transpires that Chess 1686 features a slower and lengthier take of ‘I Feel Like A Million’.
