Here are a few vocal renditions of songs that are usually delivered instrumentally.
Margie Singleton - Magic Star (Tel-Star) (1:47) - Believe it or not, Bobby Rydell also cut a vocal version of this one.
Sonny James - Apache (2:37) - For the unadulterated story of Apache and all its cultural implications go check out the amazing write-up posted on Soul Sides a couple of years back. The one Apache wrinkle that goes unexplored there, though, is the lyrical approach taken by Sonny James on this 1961 RCA release.
Bill Doggett (with vocal by Tommy Brown) - Honky Tonk (2:25) - Tommy Brown was a major player on the R&B scene in Atlanta in the early 1950s, right alongside legends like Little Richard and Billy Wright. Angel Baby and Dick Blackburn did a mighty fine interview with vocalist Brown for a Lost In Paradise podcast, which you can listen to over here.
