Hello to all the Jimmy Clanton fans.
Another hello to Jimmy.
Hello Jimmy, the San Antonio show sure looked like a lot of fun. Wish I could have been there.
Jimmy. your music has always been wonderful. I have been a fan since 1958 and will be till the Lord calls me home ! God bless you my friend .
Darn I just read the up coming shows. I grew up in Schenectady and it would have been a dream come true to see you there. Moved to Florida years ago.
As a teenager my bedroom walls were covered with your pictures. I enjoyed all of your music and had it all. You were my very favorite teen idol. Now at 72 I still enjoy it. Rock on my friend.
Hi Jimmy, I love your songs and have been a fan since the 50’s. You still look and sound fantastic! I live in Delaware and was wondering if you will be in the area anytime soon, either doing a concert or ministering?
A belated Happy Birthday!
God Bless You,
Happy Birthday Jimmy !!! God Bless You, and your ministries !! Huge fan…just saw your last west coast performance in San Bernardino…
Don’t forget to focus on your book….what a great story you have to tell…
Love, Al, and Peggy Wells
Jimmy, It was so great to see and hear you this past Saturday August 18, 2018 in San Bernardino. I was there with two friends from Downey CA, Frank and David Williams. Your songs will live forever! I only wish we could have talked more, and that I would have bought more of your music and photos. I heard you say you would be retiring soon. In looking at the crowd near your “meet and greet” table, I think you could do another West Coast Show, and really entertain even more fans. Your music and movies are one of a kind. They take us back to a very different America than what we have today. May all of these memories always be cherished, by people from all generations, and from all over the world. Thank You, Jimmy Clanton. And I hope to see and hear you again, very soon!
You and your music meant so much growing up in the late ’50’s and 1960’s. For some reason
“If I” touched my soul and it means so much to me.
We saw you at an Affordable Music Productions’ show in Upland, CA, I believe it was two years ago.
You were in the High School lobby signing records and just talking before the show began and I was
able to meet you, get a hug and speak with the sweet person (your wife?) who was handling purchases.
We were able to see you on 8/18/18 at California Theatre in San Bernardino, CA. You were, as always, the consumate perforrmer. I wish that I had been able to see your more times over the years but the two shows will be treasured in my memories. May God continue to bless you and I will look up your Ministry’s site. Thank you for your Faith – I’ll see you in Heaven.
Jimmy, you got me through the ups and downs of being a teenager! I am 70 now and I still love listening to your music and yes, even imagining that every song you sang was meant especially for that lovestruck teenage girl with a ponytail and bluejeans dreaming of you every night! Thanks for the memories!
If only you knew what your concert in the small town
of Coshocton Ohio meant to me back in 1958.
I was 14 and lived a block from the National Guard
Armory where you played. You signed an autograph
for me on a crumpled half piece of school notebook paper that I must have had in my pocket and guess what? I still have it! My favorite song of yours is
Just A Dream. I still him it to myself sometimes.
Thank you for your songs and all the sweet memories
of the good old days which have become even sweeter
through the years.
Love, peace & bright blessings to you,
this is a long time loyal fan…since the 1950,s.. now a senior wife mother ,grandmother and still loving my old time rock n roll music.

Dear Jimmy, you are my favorite singer of all time and I love you more than Bobby!
Take Care Jimmy. I just turned 69 and have been listening to your songs since my early days. I’m a disabled US Combat Veteran due to two years in Vietnam but am still kicking.
Take care and I’ll keep listening.
Thanks for all the great music my friend…
I remember your days as a deejay and program manager? at WHEX 1680 AM in Columbia Pennsylvania in the mid 1970’s.. I also recall Bob Brooks being one of the HEX deejays. I folllowed his career later while at WSBA in York and later at KJR in Seattle .
I ‘m writing now because I hope to get an answer to a question about the oldies novelty group Dicky Doo and the Dont’s. I remember you played one of their lesser hits Flip Top Box. Cute little ditty.
For some reason, I remember you said that Dicky Doo was really a Philadelphia architect named Richard A. Doo. I always enjoy great trivia and stashed that tidbit away in my brain.
However, Ive seen Wikipedia and other reference books say that Gerry Granahan was the lead member of the group.
Can you clarify your research or personal knowledge on this topic?
I hope you get to our area someday again while you are on tour.
Thanks very much.
Trivia buff and long time radio listener
When I was 14 I wrote you a letter. I love the song just a Dream. You sent me a signed autographed picture. I charrished it I’m now 72 and I still love your music. Of all the performers I wrote to you were the only one who responded with an autographed photo. Jus want to say thank you again. I k
Live in Ventura county now and I would love to attend a concert if you are ever near here.
Thanx for all the Memories! Play Vegas sometime! 💝🕊🌈🙏😊
I love all the wonderful comments you receive!
Love the ( Louisiana) song what a tribute to this great state.
I bought the cd Back Where It All Began. It isn’t working. It says check cd. I have tried it in different CD players. But it want work. I would like to get another on to replace the defected one. Thank you.
Annette, Back Where it All Began is a DVD, not a CD.
Jimmy, I have loved you since I was 15. I loved your songs, your hair (lol) everything about you. I am so glad I found you again, I had lost you until I got in the computer world and figured out how to use it, and find people. I was so happy to find you and your site. Love your Ministry site, and often go to it for peace and to just to feel good and hear the word of God.
God Bless you, Susan
just wanted to say thank you for your music! just listened to a song, brought back some memories!! your music brought me through my teen years and have never forgotten…..may you be blessed with many more years of music! go Jimmy go!!🎵🎵🎶🎶🎺🎺
Hi Jim, You’ve always been one my favorite artist. Your music lives on in our hearts. Thank You, for the wonderful memories.
Thanks so much for the memories, my husband passed 16 months ago, we danced to your songs in the 1950;s and 1960’s. We lived in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and were teenagers at the time when we met you at what was called Danceland Bandstand. The teen dance places are no longer in Cedar Rapids, a real shame todays kids won’t have the memories we have.
Thanks again for your music.
Marian M. McNabb
Was listening to an oldies station on the radio, and “Venus in Blue Jeans” came on. Sang EVERY word to it and relished in the memories it brought back. Always loved your music, Jimmy. I saw you in concert a few times – mostly oldies shows. They just don’t make music like they used to, do they? Anyway, thanks for all the fond memories and good music.
Always thought he was the cutest and loved his music.
Love your music I remember you from the 50’s my favorite Song” Just a Dream” and I still have your movie” Go Johnny Go ” I am trying to get my Family to take me in on the 18th of Aug 😊
Hope to see you in San Bernardino on August 18th. You can get tickets by phone at 1-888-718-4253 or online at affordablemusicproductions.com
Jimmy I love all your music your voice sounds the same today as it did back then. I’ve noticed many singers lose their original sound now that their older. It’s sad. I’m just so happy and proud to be one of your friends. Love you forever.
It is an honor to have met both you and Sandy and to be called your friends, God Bless !
Love the show in Pottstown. Thanks for coming
Just watched ” GO JOHNNY GO “. Am now watching ” TEENAGE MILLIONAIRE”. Go Jimmy Go !
IF YOU ARE EVER INTHE south ( Texas, Louisiana, Alabama I would like to see you in person. Grew up with rock and roll in the 50s’ and 60s.
Keith, Thank you for coming to my website. My only and last performance of my career in TEXAS will be in San Antonio on September 23rd at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. My last performance in Louisiana was in May 2017 in Baton Rouge. We made a DVD of that 2 hour show which is available in the store here on my website.
hello jimmy i’m an old fan from the 50’s just wanted to say hi and say i have always really liked your music and movies take care and keep on keeping on
Always wonderful music!
I scrolled to read your fans comments. You deserve ever compliment posted. You truly are a gifted and amazing man. Your voice is so unique and beautiful but its not only your voice. You have given so many people happiness in your choices of songs, yes, but also in the lifestyle you choose to lead. I and I know all your fans respect you so much.
I love all your songs. They bring me back to a place of innocence and listening to beautiful love songs. Even our children wished they grew up in the late 50’s and early 60’s. How can anyone beat “A Letter To An Angel”!
May God keep blessing you and your loved ones.
Enjoy singing and entertaining your fans and when its time to relax, enjoy relaxing. You can say, a life well done, Jimmy Clanton. It was never Just A Dream. You lived it!
We will always be spinning your records.
Thank you Trish, for your kind comments. Looking forward to seeing you in Ontario, CA.
Just found out you are my 3rd Cousin! Loved your music in the 60’s now a follower of your website!
Thank you for coming to my website Marie…I have trouble keeping up with my first cousins.
Glad to see you are still going strong! Remember us from Lancaster, PA.
Gary and Ormonde Wilkinson
Thank you Gary and Ormonde. I am loving my life living back in Lancaster County.
Hello Mr. Clanton,
My name is Alex and I am one of your youngest and biggest fans. I have loved your music since I was thirteen years old. I was wondering if you would be willing to autograph two of the pictures I would like to purchase from your website. Also, I am really looking forward to seeing you perform at the Pottstown show on May 19th. Are you doing any meet and greets before or after the show? I would love to take a picture with you. May God Bless you and your family. Your friend, Alex
Alex, I responded to your message right after you wrote it, but we were having technical problems with my being able to comment on this page. I was hoping to meet you in Pottstown. I’m sorry I didn’t see you. Where do you live?
Love your songs.
Thank you for loving your fans as much as we love you.Thank you for taking your time to sign autographs for items on your website.love your friend Todd Stephens
Thank you Todd. Sandy said you had a nice conversation!
When Jimmy was in Baltimore during intermission he was so sweet and let pictures of him and I to be taken they are a treasure to me he has been my idol since I was fifteen my first forty five was just a dream I’m going to Pottstown in may hopefully will get my pictures signed judy
Looking forward to seeing you in Pottstown on May 19th, Judy! There will be plenty of time for pictures after the show!!!
My older sister and I saw and heard Jimmy perform
in our little town of Coshocton Ohio at the National
Guard Armory Building. I was lucky enough to get
his autograph and I still have that crumpled piece of paper to this day in my box of treasures. At the time
the concert was the most exciting thing I had ever
done in my life.
Thanks Jimmy Clanton for that wonderful memory
way back around 1958! 💕🙏💕
Thank you Susan!
I love your songs, but now they make me cry because they remind me of my first love
I had him to wear his hair like yours hanging in the middle of his eyes I am 71.
I married in1963 and I’m still married. God Bless You and Your Wife what a wonderful year 1962 I’ll never forget it. December 8 is my Birthday.
You are a Wonder one of a kind
Thank you for coming to my website!
Thank you all for coming to my website and taking the time to leave a comment. I have read all of them although I may not have commented on each and everyone of them.
Jimmy, you have the most beautiful voice. I have always loved your songs.
Thank you so much
Thank you Penny!
Thank you so muc
Hi Jimmy! . I’m so happy right now. I saw you in 1959!!!! Saw the picture of you in front of the theater. That was the best show! I’m saving all your records for my grandchildren. God Bless You!
Thank You for the warning about posting kids info,on FB!! And,so happy to realize who was posting it!!! I’m a longtime fan!!!! My Sirius is stuck on “50’s on 5” and Elvis Channels!!!!!!
Hi Jimmy, Just wanted to let you know what a big fan I am . I have always enjoyed your music but my greatest thrill came when I got to meet you in Ft. Pierce,Florida! My sister said she had to hold me back from coming on stage!! (Ha) Thanks for all the good years!!! Fran
Did you come and have a picture taken with me at the table after the concert?
Jimmy, my husband and I saw you on Larry’s Country Reunion American Graffiti several months ago and just bought the set of DVD’s so we can watch the shows over and over. We fell in “love” with you all over again. Bringing your wife out and the things you said about her were very touching. Thank you for being such an awesome performer. I pray your and your wife are still being blessed with a wonderful life. Allen & Brenda Barrett
Always loved your records, Jimmy! Still listening to all the oldies! Brings back memories-,when you were introduced on American Bandstand. We have so many musical channels now. Still have my 45’s, my son laughs at it. Hope you are doing well. 🎼
P.S. my favorite song is go Jimmy go!
Have always enjoyed your music. It brings back great memories. Hope to see you in Pottstown, PA.
Thank you Penny!
Looking forward to performing in Pottstown. Hope to see you.
See you in Pottstown, Dennis!
Hey Jimmy – I just discovered (on YouTube https://youtu.be/JujnqvGd3KM ) that you recorded “Teardrops Make No Sound” (lyrics by me, music by Jimmy Krondes, published by Bourne Music ), I guess in the late 1960s? Anyway, I’m truly and deeply honored! “Venus in Blue Jeans” has always been one of my all-time favorite recordings!
Thank you Paul!
I love ‘Just a Dream’…I always have and still have my little 45 record….It’s sad that My turntable don’t work…I need to get a new one so I can hear it more often…It brings back some good memories and you were definitely one of my teenage idols as they call it…If you ever perform near me I want to go see you if I’m able..(back problems)…anyway, enjoyed hearing the songs again…Have a Blessed day! 🙂
Thank you for coming to my website and leaving a comment…while I may not comment on each one!!!…I read each and every one of them!!!…I love and appreciate my fans.
‘Venus In Blue jeans’ was one of my mum’s favourite songs.It is also still one of mine!You have sung so many great songs before and since.You are,in my opinion,sheer class!!!
Thank you so much!!!
Every time I play your CD, it makes me feel like I am back as a teenager again. I loved your songs then, and I love them now. Thank you for so many great memories.
Thank you…did you check out my new songs at the website store!
I have been a fan since the late 50’s. You always have been great. I hope we live a little longer
Thank you, Michael!
Loved your songs growing up, and I still do! You are an inspiration to everyone of your fans! You sure do dress nice!!! Love your suits!!! Thanks for all you do!!
I’m glad you like my suits!!!
Have been a fan forever. Saw you at The Rocket Room in D.C. back in the 60’s. Saw you again at The Hilton in Springfield Va. My friend and I came up to your room and knocked on the door (which we wasn’t suppose to do and can’t believe we did) and you were very nice to us. At least you didn’t slam the door on us. Lol Then the next night my Mother and I came to the Hilton again. Of course she had to say Beckie had your pictures all over her walls. Which all 4 walls in my bedroom were covered with you!! Oh too be young again! I still have your autograph. Thank for all the good memories! Love ya!! 💜😻💜
Thank you for being such a great and long time fan, Beckie!!!
I enjoy hearing your music. More importantly, I am fed,blessed and encouraged by the nuggets you post on Facebook.
Thank you for your kind words!
Jimmy, you are an inspiration for everyone. That voice is heavenly, the acting is truly fantastic. Such wonderful accomplishments. You are a true legend for all, who loves your music. Thank you Dear jimmy and may God continue blessing you. ❤🙏🎵
Thank you Romona!
Saw you a few years back in the Grand Casino Ballroom Show! Then personally met you in the hall and my daughter took a picture of you & I.
The next morning we visited at the hotel you stayed at, enjoyed chatting with you at the continental breakfast. Hope to see you in Minnesota again in the near future!
Thank you…I don’t have any plans to be back performing in Minnesota.
I remember being in basic training with you in Fort Leonard Wood 61&62. Seemed fun to know a celebrity. Watched a 60s special on PBS and remembered you. I guess you are still performing? If you want to say hello just email me back. It’s been a good 45 years 😊. James (Jim) Medley
Don’t have very much recollection of Ft. Leonard Wood and don’t intend to. But at least your remembrance proves I was there. I am still performing and am on Facebook. I don’t have access to the emails here.
An amazing career in music and still going strong, how many performers can make that claim to fame? Not only does Jimmy Clanton still sing great he looks great too. Was a heart throb to so many girls and women and still is. Cannot wait to see his show this spring in Pottstown along with the rest of the fabulous performers scheduled to appear. It’s going to be a night to remember and will certainly bring back memories of younger years gone by. A chance to be the teenager I once was decades back, at least for a few hours that is.
Thanks for putting smiles on millions of people’s faces Jimmy.
Toms River, NJ.
Thank you for your sweet comments and thank you so much for planning on coming to see me and others perform in Pottstown on May 20th.
Hi Jimmy , I’ve been your fan since 1959. Have several of your records, still play them. I found you on Facebook almost 4 years ago. In the last 2 1/2 years I’ve been blessed to be at 8 of your shows . I’ve been blessed being able to hang out with you and Sandy . I plan on going to more of your shows in the future. BTW …, My middle grandson which is 23 , also loves LSU Football and Hillsong just like you .
Thank you for your loyal support of me and my ministry, Marilyn!
I’m a big fan of yours. I live right outside of Baton Rouge in Walker, La. I may be almost 72, but when I listen to your music I’m 16 again.
Blessings to you, Sandy & your family for a safe, healthy & happy New Year!!!
I sure hope you were able to be at my last one man show on the Baton Rouge HS stage last `May 2017. I will still perform in a limited number of multi act shows but doubt I’ll be performing in LA again.
I am a fan from way way back. Hope you and yours has a very happy and healthy 2018 new year. Bill
Thank you, Bill, and Best Wishes to you as well!
To Jimmy and Sandy, Wishing you both all the blessings and joys of Christmas. Have a happy and healthy 2018. Linda
Thank you, Linda, and thank you for being a fan all these years!
Hey Jimmy, do you remember playing at the Southern club in Opelousas, LA in the mid 50’s? My brother and I (Harry and Larry Johnson) used to follow you when you’d play in the area. There was also Johnny Hayes, Willie Landry, Mervin and Marlin Clay. Do you remember any of us. It looks like you are doing well. Your music brings back so many memories. God delivered me from depression at 28 and called me to preach shortly after and I pastored a church in Louisiana for 28 yrs. God bless you and take care my friend ~Harry Johnson
You probably came to see me at the Moonlight Inn, the Lighthouse on False River, the Bantam Club in Gonzales, the Carousel across the river and I can’t remember a lot of the others. That was a lifetime ago. Thanks for leaving a comment.
I am 69 years old and remember watching you on American Bandstand all those years ago. I have always loved your songs Just a Dream and Venus in Blue Jeans.
Years ago I watched a special-Rock and Roll Graffiti-I loved it but didn’t purchased it at the time. I have watched some of it on You Tube, but am now the proud owner of the whole set of DVD’s, and I love it.
I am a Christian, too, and so appreciated the comments that I heard you and so many of the other performers made about their faith. What would we ever do without Jesus or our faith in God? I don’t even want to think about it.
My mom watched American Bandstand as she puttered around our house, too, and she loved it when you were on and sang Just A Dream. My mom lives in Heaven now and I look forward to a joyous reunion with her and Daddy some day, as well as other loved ones.
I also wanted to mention your movie Go, Johnny Go. I recently watched that and it was really a good movie. I love Sandy Shepherd singing Heavenly Father. So beautiful.
Thank-you, Jimmy, for your sharing your talent with us. Please give my regards to your lovely wife. A good marriage is a true blessing from God. My husband and I have been married since 1969. We have 3 grown children and 3 awesome granddaughters, but I still feel like a teenager in my heart.
God bless you! Peggy Dudley-Aurora, Nebraska
Thank you for being a long time fan of mine. That was Sandy Stewart who was in the movie, “Go. Johnny, Go.” Thank you for your comment!
Hello Jimmy. …I saw you at the PNC Art Center…I believe it was two summers ago.. and I was over the moon to finally see you and hear you in person after loving you since my teens!! And I’m more in love with your songs and YOU then ever!!! I met you after the concert and was overwhelmed with your personality and kindness. You are a wonderful human being and the world is so blessed to have you in it! Please continue to share you beautiful voice with the world and hopefully in New Jersey again very soon!!
Thank you, I have been back in that area in Red Bank several times since that show at the PNC.
Howdy Jimmy, I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your songs when I was growing up. I was a young and growing romantic and your songs brought me lots of consolation when it came to “young love” and discovering girls. I could also sing along with you and hold every note as you did. I have lost my voice so singing is more like Bob Dylan now, but I still try. I was pleased to see that another site said that you had a “religious conversion” (I despise that term)…that you got saved and found JESUS as I also have. Now make sure that JESUS knows you (Matt 7:21-23) as most Christians miss those verses. Some time when you are praying, I would love for you to pray (along with me) for Brian Wilson of the BeachBoys. He was a genius and his songs also resonated with me when I was in my late teens and early 20’s. May GOD richly bless you and your family and know that you, Eddie Cochran, Sam Cooke, and Fats Domino got me through some tough times as a young teenaged romantic. You had a tremendous impact on my love of music and my life. Oh, I also got to see you in person when you came to my hometown (Jacksonville, Florida) back in 1957 or 1958 when I was 13. I can’t recall all who were in the show as I only went to see you and sing along with you (I was way up high in the seats so nobody would hear me).
Always a fan, and proud to be a brother in CHRIST! Bill Tackett
Bill, thank you for being a fan of Jimmy’s and of his songs all through these years. The fact that he was a teen idol, was in his opinion, the gateway for God using Jimmy’s notoriety to spread the gospel once Jimmy at age almost 42 got saved. Jimmy has had 4 visitations from God, Himself and would preach to a washing machine if there were no one available because Jimmy Clanton is a walking talking Bible preacher/teacher. Jimmy lives with one foot in the Spirit Realm and constantly speaks Scripture. He has a Jimmy Clanton Ministry page on Facebook as well as having made himself available as an evangelist for different churches. In fact, Jimmy was in full time ministry for 14 years until he received a prophetic word telling him that God was going to take him back into the music business so that he could reach those in the marketplace. Rest assured that God knows who Jimmy Clanton is and I often say, “If Jimmy Clanton puts his foot in the Red Sea, it would part.” God Blesses Jimmy and those around him on a daily basis. Sandy Weeks, Executive Associate for Jimmy Clanton Enterprises
WOW MEMORIES OF YOU AND JUST A DREAM STILL STAYS WITH ME AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. AS A TEENAGER YOUR SONGS HELP ME THRU SOME PAINFUL BREAK UPS AND SHED SOME TEARS BUT YOU WERE MY IDOL; AND WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR BEAUTIFUL VOICE..
Thank you. I hope everything worked out for you.
Jimmy, saw the rock’n’roll legends shows produced in the 1990’s for RFD-TV by Larry Black this fall. Was transported back to my little girl days. Was only in grade school during the late 50’s/early 60’s but looooved the music even at those early ages. Many tears came down my cheeks during those evenings watching all you guys on RFD. I just wish I had saved all those teen magazines with your pictures & stories in them that I once had. I remember watching your movies back then, too. So many memories of great times long past. You have maintained your good looks and smooth style all these years. And what gentleman still today. Thanks for the trip back in time. A true fan, Chris Hobrock
Thank you for your kind words.
I was too young to remember you music, I only remember Venus in blue jeans , you have a beautiful voice I can’t stop listening to you
Hi Jimmy. I’m a big fan for as long as I can remember. Love your songs and hope that you will keep singing for us as long as you want to! God speed my friend!
I just thought about you after many years. I Googled you and was surprised to find your website. I live in California now but from new Orleans. So happy to see you are still entertaining. I am about you age, but when I was 16 I over you and was quite a fan.
Jimmy, I saw you last night at the Michael Pryor’s show in Emmittsburg Md. Nov. 4th, I sure enjoyed seeing you and listing to your music, brought back good memories. Any chance that you will be coming back to this area any time soon?
Well I’m glad you found me.
One of the greatest vocalist of all time. I’m playing your music in the back ground from Jimmy’s Greatest Hits.
I have enjoyed your records for years. Yes, I still have mine.
Love your music. You’re as good as ever and just as handsome
Have always loved girls in ‘blue jeans’ and your song helped state that love outright. The night I met the woman I have spent the last 34 years with, she was wearing blue jeans. Also, I was a trumpet player in school and one of the 1st rock and roll records I learned to play was “Venus in Blue Jeans”. I always thought that the B-side “Highway Bound” should have been an A-side release of its own and I played it to death along with “Venus” Saw you awhile back on a PBS special and you were still fantastic. Thanks for the early rock and roll memories. I have always been a huge record collector, at one time I had over 3500 singles. A divorce soon divested me of my collection.
Jimmy, my husband and I just watched you on “Country Family Reunion”. It was wonderful to see some of the acts from my youth. I really enjoyed you singing on this program and was especially touched when you brought your wife out during “Venus in Blue Jeans”. You could see how much you loved her and also that God is important in your life. I realize that the program was filmed several years ago but you are still looking and sounding great. Best wishes.
It was wonderful to actually see you in person during Breakfast at the Ramada in Cumberland, MD. this morning. You were very busy with a group of Lady fans! I did want to meet you and shake your hand, but didn’t want to intrude! I’ve been a fan since I was 10 years old. Loved those songs of yours and still do….Good luck to you and I hope our paths will cross again!
God bless and “Go Jimmy Go”!
PS I was the one walking around the hotel with the black Great Dane!
Rick, you should have introduced yourself and rescued me. I had been admiring your dog as you had walked it out by the RR tracks. We all talked about what a beautiful dog you had.
Good morning. Looking forward to your upcoming shows!
I wasw a big an f your’s, a great entertainer. I would love to see you in concert but I am in Ohio. and never see you close to me.
Jimmy, I rediscovered you about 3 yrs ago on Facebook. I’m the Super fan since I was 5 yrs old who traveled from Okla to California in 2015 and to Baton Rouge this year to see and hear you, to talk with and hug you (maybe for the last time which breaks my heart). I am so happy to have a shared friendship with you and I love your soul. God bless you and Sandy and thanks for all the wonderful memories!
Linda, I am so appreciative of you traveling such distances to California to see me with this last time being to Baton Rouge. Thank you so much for your sacrifices and efforts to come and see me. I am humbled by people who do that. Who knows what God has planned for the future.
I have been a fan since I was a young teen. At that time I never dreamed we would be friends on something called Facebook. You have had an amazing career, and stayed a good and humble person. So many famous people took the wrong road. Thanks for all of the beautiful music.
Jimmy you are a wonderful performer. Thank you for all the memories.
When I was about 12 years old, I placed second in a “16 Magazine” essay contest about you. My prize was an autographed copy of “Jimmy’s Happy, Jimmy’s Blue,” which became my favorite album. I also saw you live at a concert that featured a variety of singers and musicians. I still enjoy listening to you and continue to appreciate your one-of-a-kind voice. It’s nice to know you have so many fans!
Thank you, Diane. Do you still have the album?
No, Jimmy, I don’t have the album, just the memories 🙂
Happy Birthday; 9/2, Great tunes, great entertainer and a great person. Still play my bass along with your tunes.
Thank you for the Birthday wish.
Friends on Facebook. I have absolutely loved your music since I was in high school. So very glad to see that you continue to perform and entertain audiences all over the area. If there is ever a plan to perform in Pittsburgh, PA, please let me know.
Thank you for all your comments. I appreciate all my fans and read all your comments.
Hi I wanted to thank you for being so kind to me I came to see you and Brenda lee in greenville s.c.you were at Howard Johnson”s. after the concert and you made them let me and my friend in and got us hot chocolate and you were so kind but Brenda lee was nasty to us I have never forgot you !!!and I do wish I could get to Branson to see you again. I have all your music !!and I know you are still a kind person with a good heart just hope you get this so you know you. LEFT AN IMPRESSION ON ME MY WHOLE LIFE. THANK YOU ANN !!! firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, Ann…I’m glad I had a positive influence on your life. I do not perform in Branson.
Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
Loved your music when I was young and still do. I have you on a couple of playlists.
I have been a fan since Just A Dream was first released and continue as a huge fan today. Am hoping to see you perform in concert one day soon. Just checked your website for dates but information provided says check back soon — and I will!
I am semi retired and only performing in select shows. I have DVDs of my shows which can be purchased in the store here on my website.
Jimmy Clanton, the memories of just hearing your name brings me back to a better time, may God bless you.
I remember my mom playing your record Go Jimmy Go. My mom’s maiden name was Clanton. She always said that you guys were related. She was from Shelbyville, TN. Never knew, if this was true, or something she wanted to be true. Always loved the song!!
Jimmy… it’s me Mike Zandman. I’m the kid who sang your songs in my Brooklyn apartment where my stage was my living no room and audience was my mom. I was 9 years old.. So now I’m 63 and I’m a local band in a 55’and over New Jersey Community. Well I found out that our Bass player use to back you up… his name is Jeffrey Sturman and he speaks proudly of playing with your Band… Anyways, thanks for being a founding member of Rock N Roll.
I have been a fan from the time your first song hit the NY airwaves, saw you at Allen Freed R&R Shows, you can still sing and great to hear you.
didn’t finish my comment I loved to hear you sing “Just a Dream!” If you ever play Las Vegas or anyplace around, please let me know. It would be wonderful to see you again!
Hoping all is well . Just listened to one of my favorite songs you sing so well…If I. All the best, Vic
Wow my first time on your page. You still look handsome.I saw you in Houston,Texas opening for your movie Teenage Millionaire, I also got your autograph. It was so exciting to see you and the movie, I was 15 then but I still have a great memory of seeing you in person. God Bless you.
You were my first teenage crush. “Just A Dream” was my favorite song. Saw you on American Bandstand. So glad to find you. Wondered what happened to you.
I was surprised and glad to run across a repost of yours on my Facebook page.
My Dad had been called to active standby duty during the Berlin crisis and we had to move to Leesville.
No way you could remember me and a bunch of other kids that met you at Ft. Polk, La back in 1962. We were at the swimming pool when you came there. It was a thrill for a 12 year old girl I will never forget.
Glad you are still in music.
Jimmy, I was working at a drugstore in Pasadena, TX when you came in and I will never forget how thrilled I was to meet you. That was when I was in HS
Jimmy, I’ve enjoyed your music for as far back as I can remember. Being born in ’57, I can remember songs from when I was 2-3 years old. God has blessed you with a great talent, and blessed us (your fans) with you. Thank you for sharing your life and music with us.
Thank you for your kind words, Chuck!
Saw you at the Dallas airport in 1960. My husband had served his time in the Army, we were heading back home to Lake Charles. If I remember correctly a guy with you was a Montelbano and had relatives in Lake Charles. You were performing in Crowley or Opelousas, and asked us to come see you, and we did! 😊 You invited us to visit you in your dressing room!!! For 4 years I had watched you on American Bandstand, from all over the country and I felt a little closer to home every time I saw you, I was so lonesome being away from home. Just wanted to thank you so much for that, and being so kind to us.
You have a lifetime fan in me!!
I am sure you have no recollection of meeting me and several of your other cousins, so I will introduce myself. I am one of many of your second cousins from Houma, Louisiana. My grandmother, Azalie Eymard Duet, was your Mother’s (Aunt Joyce as I recall) sister. we met when I was just a child at my grandparents home; then again when you gave a concert in Houma.
I have just returned from a visit to Houma to see my parents, who are now living in an Assisted Living facility. Paul Duet is my Daddy and will turn (God Willing!) 94 yrs. old on August 21 of this year. He is the only living sibling of Andre Jackson Duet and Azalie Eymard. Alzheimer’s has, infortunately, impaired some of his memory—-but it surprises me how much he remembers from his childhood! And he still recognizes his children and grandchildren and Great grandchildren (sometimes). He is a saint of a man and is loved dearly. God truly blessed us when He gave him to us as our father! My mother is 90 yrs. old and has health issues, as we all seem to have as we age. But her memory is still intact for the most part. Now if she would just wear her hearing aid we could have a better conversation!
My sister, Kathy, heard from a friend of hers about your farewell tour and had she known, all of us Duets would have shown up! Alas, you came and went. But if you have ANY PLANS of visiting the Tampa Bay area, I would so enjoy seeing you and listening to your wonderful voice that God has sooooo blessed you with.
You are a few years older than I. I am 67 and holding —-until November that is. I know that you are retired now but please keep your website up to date so that all of your relatives from bayou country and your fans from around the world can continue to follow your dream.
God is GOOD and perhaps we will meet again. If not now then when we all rejoice and go to Our Father!
My Our Lord continue to bless you and all of your family and hold you in the palm of His Hand!
Love and Prayers,
Carolyn Duet Tibbits
Over the past year I’ve gotten to meet and know many in the Duet side of my family. Carolyn, I’ve spent a lot of time in Houma in the past few years. I performed in my final one man concert in Baton Rouge in May and several of your relatives were in attendance. However, there are no plans to perform in Florida. Thanks for leaving a message.
I meet you on Greenville South Carolina in 1959 at Greenville Memorial Autorium I was a big fan then and still am
LOVE YOU JIMMY CLANTON, SINCE 1958. I WAS AN 8TH GRADER IN EL PASO TECH, EL PASO TEXAS. esther
Just sittig here watching you on your PBS performance from Benedum Center ….. one of the
Best dvd i own….. you are by far the “Best of the Best “…… thank you for all your years of great entertaining….
Btw as you are from Baton Rouge do you remember E.K.Long Hospital
(no longer there) my daughter was born there…
Thanks So much jimmy for all the great songs!. I was just 9 when I first heard your “just a Dream” and its still one of my all time favorites. I’m so glad to find your site and see you’re still singing and entertaining! You songs will be around for a long long time to come!
I grew up listening to your music & learned to dance by it… In fact, my very 1st puppy love dance was done while your record played. I so miss those beautiful, sweet days of your music, young love & a more balanced loving world!
Thank you all for coming to my website and leaving a comment. Please know that even if I have not left a comment under yours, I have read every message ya’ll have written…thank you for so many kind words. I really do appreciate the time you took to write them. Luv ya….Jimmy!!!
Thank you, Jimmy, for providing music that was a large part of the songbook of my youth! I saw you when I was a teenager when you were promoting a record at a store in the Baltimore area. My friend and I were there to see you, and the same friend saw you last year at a show and said you were still great! I live in northern Maryland, so we are practically neighbors! Wishing you many, many more happy, healthy years!!
Jimmy I so enjoyed seeing you at Hauppauge High School
Reliving a memory. from my teen years
I was 13 it was my Birthday and my neice to me to a Rock N Roll show
And you came down from the stage and gave me a kiss on the check for my birthday
thank you for making my birthday such a memory
If your ever appear around Tampa, FL please send me an email I will be there. One of my favorite singers ever. Thanks for the memories.
I’m your biggest fan. I got to meet you in Port Arthur, TX a few years ago. I thought you lived in Houston. I’ve had 3 eye surgeries in the past 6 months all in Houston and each time my husband and I were there, the only thing I liked about that city was the fact that you lived there.
I used to live in Houston but moved to southern Lancaster County Pennsylvania several years ago.
Just A Dream, have loved this song forever. From Franklin, Louisiana!!!
Jimmy, in the early 80’s you came to Butte,MT and played for a small group of us. I loved it and tonight I am playing a tape I bought at that meeting called Born Again. Every once in a while I play it. We had been recently saved and it was a good time of my life . Now it’s still good:)
😊 thank you
The song “Born Again” is on gospel my CD of the same name and can be purchased at the store on this website.
“Venus in Blue Jeans” – a great song sung by a great singer from the great days of.songs and music.Clearly sung and understandable lyrics.. I can’t understand ‘modern songs and music’ and why it is popular. I don’t know. Bring back the old days.
Mr. Clanton, as a child in the mid-sixties I heard you sing but, did not know who you really were until a day ago that I received and watched the movie Go Johnny Go did I realized who was the voice with the face. Thank you for your music. Dr. Zayas
Folks, I just got back from the 4 week trip to Louisiana to perform at my alma-mater Baton Rouge High School with benefits going to the BRHS radio stations. It was an extremely rewarding concert and the audience was fantastic!!!…the energy in that auditorium was exciting!!! Fans came from many different states: FL, TN, KY, NY, TX, OK, WA, KS, AL, MS, MN…I’ve probably left some out and 3 very determined came from Ontario, Canada!!! I appreciate the effort everyone made to come to my last concert where I am the main performer. I drove the whole 2975 miles so I’m going to kick back for awhile and go fishing!!! I will read and respond to your comments here. Thank you for coming to my million dollar website designed and maintained by Carolyn & Bill Otworth.
Always enjoyed his music. He was very popular in “our” day. The folks like him bring back the memories of a simpler time without a lot of complications. We can be grateful for that.
I grew up on your music Jimmy~! Still loving it~! A nd still love that million dollar smile~!
Can remember exactly where I was when I first heard Just A Dream. Such wonderful memories. Thank you so much.
Your Amazing Grace is just beautiful Jimmy I am going to have it played at my funeral (I am planning it now before I die) I am not going to die right now I am going to plan and pay for it because it is much cheaper to do so Everyone will love your rendition of Amazing Grace I love it
Sandy read me your post on Facebook…I am so glad you like my version of “Amazing Grace!” Thank you for coming to my webpage and leaving a comment!
Sorry I missed your concert last week in Baton Rouge. I remember you very well from our old Army days at Fort Polk. I had just come to LSU from Miss. when we were called up. The main thing I remember about you was performing to the company at Fort Polk. My wifes folks had come over for Thanksgivings and came to the base to hear you. At the time I thought things were bad but now I look fondly at those days and the good people we had. I don’t see many now and many passed away. I retired from LSU in 2000 and live most of the year at Denham Springs where we flooded in August but have moved back in.
Thanks for all the memories and it was a privilege to have known you. Best regards;
Dr. Robert Mills Sgt. E5
Bob, I’m sorry we didn’t get to see one another while I was in Baton Rouge for those 10 days. Sorry about the flooding you had to deal with. I get to Louisiana a couple of times a year.
My husband Tom and I were at the concert last night at Baton Rough High. To say it was wonderful is an understatement. We were sitting with Nan and she gave us a tour of the TV and radio stations before the start of the concert. I graduated from BRHS in 1967 and we are having our 50th class reunion next month and I will tell everyone about your great performance.
Those of us that are Baton Rouge natives are so proud of our home town super stars and you are at the top of the list. God bless you and your family and enjoy your retirement
Gretchen Oliver Berry.
Thank you for your kind words, Gretchen!!!
Enjoyed your Baton Rouge concert last night and the privilege to meet you. What an amazing career. And like I said, who else that performed in the 50’s is still performing today? You are obviously a great music, voice and song writing talent. Enjoy your slower pace and may God bless you!
Steve, it was nice to meet you and Christi. Thank you for coming to the concert!
I was in love with you when I was a teenager. You were the cutest singer ever. The smile is one never to forget.
I saw you live outside of philly at a roller rink. Good luck to you and God bless.
i saw jimmy early in his career and never forgot his voice or his music.Next SS check i ordering his cd. i can.t believe its close to 60 years. USED TO DANCE WITH MY HUSBAND UNTIL HIS PASSING AFTER 54 YEARS AND AND HE WOULD SING; My venus in blue jeans. Will keep looking to see if you ever get near Binghamton new york in concert. What coincidence i found JIMMY’S while he is peeforming tonight at this tme in Louisiana.
Looking forward to the show tonight. I know it will be wonderful. Hoping to get the opportunity to meet you. I would like after you are back home, to develop a growing friendship. Just two Louisiana boys getting to know each other.
Hallo, good music is Always enjoiable. Thanks.
Just a Dream! I so enjoyed you. Still do.
Had your picture on my bedroom wall as a young teenager. Saw you perform in Westbury Long Island. You introduced Roxanne as your Venus in Blue Jeans. How is she doing? How many years have you been married?
My husband & I just watch Go Johnny Go , I love your voice.
JImmy I saw you in Montgomery, Alabama in 1958 at a theater down town. I was 14 and had just returned from 4 years in Germany so you were the first star I had ever seen in person. Needless to say I was thrilled.
Keep on singin’.
I have loved your music from the beginning. Keep it going!
What a great and tremendous talent Jimmy is. Off stage his kindness and down-to-earth demeanor is real folks. I am proud to be in the same category of follow musicians. I do cherish his friendship.
Thank you my friend!!!
Keep rockin Jimmy. Lov Ya. Jerry G.
She reminded me of Susan Sommers from American Graffitti driving her Corvette
Went to High School with your wife went she went to Spring Branch High school an went to the same church you got married in. Saw a. Old DooWop an she was sitting in audience I think an you introduced her
Jimmy I want to thank you and Sandy for a wonderful interview last night. Your new cd is the best that anyone could ever do and you have hit a home run with it. I don’t think any one else could match the voice and the musical production on everyone of the eight tracks on that album. Congratulations my friend.
Thank you for the opportunity, Bud. It was a good time.
Jimmy And Sandy ,what a fantastic interview last night with Bud Francis ,on Good Time Oldies you left me speechless,i had chills and tears .My opinion ,this is your best cd EVER ,your voice is a true gift from God .Thank you ,love to you and Sandy .
Thank you Linda!
Jimmy, only a few words to jog your memory, but it has been so long ago: table tennis in the field house at LSU; dances at the Bantam Club in Gonzales/St.Amant;CYO. My name is Larry Fisher and my cousin Roger Melancon and I never missed your performances. You said once ” Fisher you’ve got to teach me to play ping pong “. I said I would if you would teach me to play guitar. But I think a little song called ” Just A Dream ” came along before it could happen. What an era to be young in!
WOW! Life has a way of taking us down different paths.
Really enjoyed the interview today. You and Sandy sounded really great. I have already bought the CD, but sounds really good when you talk about the songs. Looking forward to the show in Baton Rouge on May 20th. I know everyone will enjoy it. Love you.
Thank you Brenda. Which song is your favorite? See you May 20th at my final one man show of my career at Baton Rouge High School. For any of you who do not have tickets yet as Brenda does, tickets are available at tix.com and put in Jimmy Clanton. See ya’ll there! Right Brenda!
I ENJOYED LISTENING TO THE RADIO SHOW AND LOVE THE SONGS.
This is a slightly weird request but please bear with me:
As a child of the early rock and roll era, I enjoyed your music greatly,
As a Marine in the early 60’s, I served on Okinawa with a guy from N.O, named Boudreau. Sorry but after 50 years his first name escapes me.
He claimed that he was related to you or it may have been that his parents took you into their care for a time.
I don’t know if this is true but if so, I would like to know if “Boudreau” is doing OK.
Thanks for your memories and ROCK ON!!
Brian J. Barry
Jimmy Clanton, that picture I used to have of you, my mother, Josie, and aunt Mary has fascinated me for years! Oh that I could find it to have you sign it for me. I used to think what a down to earth person he must have been to come to the humble home of a friend’s cousin during the peak of his success! And low and behold, I got a chance to meet you! And in person, you were just as I imagined you might be…totally without pretense or guile. Thanks for being so kind to my husband and me. I did not remember your career per se except from old stories. I learned more from Sandy and the FB posts. I love history and reading and appreciate those who made an impact in the lives of those I love! I had no idea about all your achievements! God Bless! Thanks again! I hope you never stop singing!
Thank you Mary Hope…looking forward to seeing you again in Baton Rouge on May 20th.
Hello Jimmy, I hope to see you in Baton Rouge
Looking forward to it, Harry!
He is awesome! Love all his songs!

Hello Jimmy, I’ve been a fan of yours for many years. Love your songs. I can still see you singing those songs in your movies. I especially want to let you know I received my CD copy soundtrack of your movie “Go Johnny Go”. It’s great!
Hopefully I’ll get to see you in B R. I’ve loved youvsince my YOUNG days. Danced to your music at the end of the world with the sweetie. Also fell asleep many many nights to your records.
Hope to see you at the concert in Baton Rouge. For tickets go to tix.com
Heard you live in Thibodaux, LA recently and planning to attend your concert in Baton Rouge on May 20th. My husband and I enjoyed the concert so very much. Honestly made me feel 18 all over again. Such a light hearted feeling hearing your music and in person even better. It had been a really long time since I had heard your songs and I was lifted so high I felt I could fly. What a fun time – You look great and I hope that you continue these for as long as you feel up to it. Hint: You make others feel wonderful and really young again – but always young at heart. God Bless You and your family Forever and a very Happy Easter also. From south Louisiana (Thibodaux)
Hope to see you at the Baton rouge concert…I am planning some very special things for my fans. Tickets are available at tix.com, click on but tickets, then put in Jimmy Clanton. This show will be the epitome of my career.
So glad to see you’re still performing. Will you be coming near Columbus, Ohio any time soon?
You are a wonderful performer. Good luck in all you do and thank you for all the memories.
Hello, Jimmy! Sylvia Salazar Monkres here your avid fan from Scottsdale, Arizona. I just love your style of singing, songs you sing, and the effortless, genuine and sincere way you share the music with your audience. Song are so dreamy and romantic or make one jump up and start dancing! You indeed continue to be a dynamic idol whose fans are older but “Forever Young”! Love movies “Go Johnny Go” & “Teen Millionaire” Looking forward to Baton Rouge concert. God Bless you. Sylvia S. Monkres
WOW!!! You’re coming all the way from AZ to my Baton Rouge show? I am so humbled that you would come that distance to see me. My fans just amaze me!
Hello Mr. Clanton. I just watched Go, Johnny, Go, which you were the star of. What a great classic Rock ‘N’ Roll movie! There is a scene where you are singing with a choir, where a very fair-haired young man is playing the organ. Is that by any chance a teenage Edgar Winter? It looks like it could be. Thanks, Kevin
Sir, I have no idea who most of the people were in that movie.
Hi Jimmy. My wife and I saw you a few years ago a Doo-Wop show at Wolf Trap, in Northern Virginia. You were the only performer to visit after the show and you gave my wife Joyce, who was one of your favorite fans in the 60s, a big hug. She still talks about. We also just heard on Pandora a song from your album “Born Again”. The song was “I’ll love you forever”. We love that type of Christian music and have sung in choirs and quarters for years.
We will be having our 50th wedding anniversary on October 14th, and wouldn’t it be great to see you in person. I know that is nearly impossible. It would be at a private pavilion at Ocean Isle Beach, NC. We have a beach house there. Ever been? Of course our place would be opened up to you and your family. My wife would probably pass out! Wouldn’t that be a surprise!! I saw your booking contact number but wanted to mention it to you personally.
Take care, stay healthy and hope to heard back.
It is possible to book me for a 50th anniversary party. I have done several. Call Sandy at 717-284-2724
Hi Jimmy. I doubt you will remember me at Stroheckers Glass Co,in Harrisburg Pa. We talked about your hit song Just a Dream. You were not performing at that time. I see you came roaring back,and still very popular.Good Luck and God Bless you and your friends. Rick Strohecker..
We lived in the Lancaster Pennsylvania area from 1972 thur 1977 I remember when Jimmy was a disc jockey at the Park City Mall . I ‘ve always loved his music.
I live in southern Lancaster County PA now!
good to hear from you. glad you r still performing. I was stationed w/u at ft. leonardwood
I remember it well!
You have always been a favorite of mine! May God continue to Bless you & your health.
An adoring fan from back in the day!
Thank you Carolyn, I will have a new CD available in the store here in April.
What can I say from late fifties to now in a heartbeat and we’re here now
The name Jimmy Clanton registers just as strong today
Nice looking, good kid with great voice and non egoist style
Thanks for the music and memories, Jimmy
Thank you George! BTW we do get to Quebec!

I was listening to “Music Choice” on cable early this morning and heard Venus in Blue Jeans. Good song. Glad to see your still going strong.
God has Blessed Me!
Simply said……I love you and all the memories your songs have given me. Love your voice and your music style. I live in the S.F., Ca. bay area and would be so happy to see you come up our way.
We both are OLDIES but GOODIES. We are surely blessed to still be around and healthy.
God continue to bless you so you can bless us.

Just watched Go Johnny Go on TCM and it was a magic carpet ride to past memories when Jimmy Clanton like Eddie Cochran and Richie Valens, and Elvis were all the thing. I can still see his photo in color where I taped it next to my mirror staring out at me each night I went to sleep. I think it was ” Teen ” magazine … that ran that full page photo.
Anyway thank you Jimmy Clanton for all your wonderful songs, and lyrics.
It was his as the girls said in the movie last night ” dreamy voice ” that made him one of the top teen idols of my teenage years.
This is in that Dick Clark Show and Bandstand era ” I remember watching him on those platforms as well. I just wanted to tell you how nice it was to listen ” Once Again ” to his voice, see his smile and remember that in that era the boys were gentlemen.
He had lots of songs but my favorites were Just A Dream, Venus in Blue Jeans, Go Jimmy Go and a Ship On A Stormy Sea. Even though I can’t find it online the one he sang in the movie * Go Johnny Go *, ” Once Again ” was beautiful, was this Jimmy’s song or did it belong to another artist like Sandy Stewart who was his love interest in this movie. I would love to find the lyrics for this one. Thanks for bringing back great memories of the 50-60’s
Thank you, Charlotte for such sweeeeeeet comments…!!!!!..luv, Jimmy….
love his music even now.clara
Thank you, Clara…!!!
Have always liked your songs. My favorite is Just a Dream.
Great voice. Followed you for 50 years!
Much appreciated, Linda…!!!!!
Hi Jimmy. I just finished watching go Johnny go. I wasn’t sure you were an actual singer but turns out you are. I was born in 1958 so your a little before my time but I love your voice, and music . The more I see go Johnny go the more I like it. I’m glad to hear your still performing and bringing joy to many of your fans. Good luck and God bless.
THANK YOU, DAVID…!!!!
Hi Jimmy, My name is Dick Bell and I live in Spanish Fort, Al. My dad was from Coffeeville, Al and used to tell me that my grandmother used to babysit you at the farm. Her name was Trula Bell and my dad’s name was Truman (Wuss). Don’t know if any of this was true or not, but it was nice to think it was. I have always enjoyed your music, and wish you the very best life has to offer!! Enjoy seeing you on PBS specials. Just finished watchin Go Johnny Go. Take care and have a terrific 2017!!
too long ago, so don’t remember..but thanks for stopping in here, my friend..!!!

I’m thankful for your facebook with your uplifting words of inspiration and asking if there are any prayer requests. It’s nice seeing someone sharing happy posts on facebook! We need to share a positive msg on facebook as often as we are able to.
Thank you Sherri!!!
I still have your 45 ACE record -What Am I GONNA DO / IF I -I would love to have it autographed
You can send it to me at Jimmy Clanton, 409 Pencroft Drive South, Holtwood, PA 17532
I first heard Just a Dream when I was younger and the more I heard it the more I fell in love with music.
I still have the album that I got when I was 15 yrs old. Just a Dream was what you were to me. A dream of a singer and good looking. You were my crush. You were my love. And, you still are my favorite singer from that era. Love you. Betty
Thank you Betty!
Dear Jimmy your music has been a part of our love story for many years. We are married 48 years. We were thrilled to see you in Cerritos and hoping you make your way out here again. We love your music. We wish you a very blessed Christmas.
Your Friends in California
Richard and Diana Pine
did you have albums called Jimmy’s Red and Jimmy’s Blue? the albums were actually red and blue….i had on of those monster record players, radio, and 8 track stereos…cabinet style that took up one whole wall….so many memories. my homeplace is green county mississippi…….it’s one of those places that you can’t get there from here……i married Leslie Wallace. he was the guitar player for Potliquor in the early 70’s….baton rouge group…i’m sending you best wishes from way up here in Zachary, La…..well maybe not too far up……
Jimmy’s Happy, Jimmy’s Blue is available on CD here on my website in my store.
You made a lasting impression on me since I was 13 years old. You answered my letter. Jimmy, your smile lights ups a room and your songs melts our hearts. Just a Dream was just the beginning of a life time of songs you would sing. We love you and looking forward to seeing you in January in Thibodaux, La. Your nuggets help so many. Keep the Living Word of God moving. <3
Thank you Sybil. It was nice to see you in Houma.
Can’t wait to read your autobiography. ….
When will it be published?
Good question, Pa. See you in a few weeks!
A fan for many years…..lived in Port Allen, Louisiana all my life across the river from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Listening to your music brings back such good memories of the dances and friends from long ago……
Hope to see you at my show at Baton Rouge High School in Baton Rouge on May 20th. More information will be forthcoming. “Back Where It All Began.” Tickets available at tix.com or from Pal Productions Co. in Baton Rouge.

I enjoy you ‘nuggets’ & they make me feel good too. Your smile is contagious.
Love your site.

Great to see this page. Thanks for your music Jimmy and your voice is so special and unique! 🙂
Thank you for signing the Guestbook!
Hi Jimmy I love coming to this web sight to read all of the comments from other fans. You are truly loved and are a blessing to so many. Ill see you at the show coming up in Jan. also the one in May at your high school. Would not miss them. Because I think this will truly be your last performance in Louizzzzzana! Till then “KEEP ON ROCKING ” Your friend Judy
Judy, the show in Thibodaux on January 29th is also to benefit the law enforcement of Lafourche Parish and where could you possibly get tickets to see Jimmy Clanton in concert for $15.45. The May 20th show at the Baton Rouge HS will be my last show in Louisiana and possibly my last show as the single headline artist.
I have been enjoying your music for 58 to 59 years. Thanks for the memories.
Thank you Lanny!
Dear Mr. Clanton,
I became one of your most avid fans in 1958 when you appeared on American Bandstand and sang, “Just A Dream.” I realize this does not make me unique, but at the age of 10, you were the first love of my life. Prior to you, I was madly in love with Roy Rogers!
I am marking the days off my calendar for May 20, 2017. I will finally get to see you in person after 50 years of following your career and continuing to love your music. I have a request for your consideration – Would you dedicate the song, “Just A Dream” to the BRHS Class of 1966? We recently celebrated our 50th reunion and this dedication would continue to add memories to our Class. Many members of our class will be in attendance.
Kathy BRHS 1966
Kathy, this is really funny (right up there with Roy Rogers) and for sure I will mention this from stage.
I was 14 when you started, but I remember you music, especially “Just A Dream” My late wife ( named Clanton,also) often wondered if you two were related. We lived in Many, La. You take care, Jimmy !
Love you and your music Big Jim!!!! Old rock n Roller is one of my favorites
Thank You Jimmy for the Wonderful Years of Your Great Music, “Another Sleepless Night” has been my Theme Song for many Years, Although All Your Songs are Great, Another Sleepless Night remains my favorite…
Holiday Blessings To You & Yours
I had a little radio that i would hide under the blankets when mum and dad would argue (almoat every nite ) but i got to listen to couison brucie ,wolfman jack, tommy shannon and every detroit radio staion and I knew every song that came out for 56-64 when i left home (at14) and these really great music people saved my life out in the cold country and i would like to thank people just like Jim that helped me trough this hard time Wayne B
Loved seeing you in person in Florida. You need to come back!
Have scrapbook with pictures of you from 1959. Would like to send it to you
I would love to have your scrapbook. My address is Jimmy Clanton Enterprises, 409 Pencroft Drive South, Holtwood, PA 17532

Hi Jimmy, this Willie West, another vocalist from Raceland. I recorded at Cossimo’s in 1959.
I’m still singing and recording, too. I do R and B. God Bless, homeboy.
Rene’ Rice friend of Frank Shattuck from Alden Ct Baton Rouge, La
I always loved your songs! Time passing has changed a lot of things, but not my favorite singer!
Thank you, Jimmy, for the great music and for continuing to share it with all of your fans. We enjoy your music very much and listen to you on the radio, as well as, watch you on YouTube.com. Love your sound. Your enthusiasm shows through on every recording. Thank you so much!

My mother has very fond memories of your songs. Her favorite song is “Just A Dream ”
My mother thinks you are still looking good!
She would really like to attend one of your performances. When will you be coming to
We (Jeanet,Carolyn and Donna held the Berger reunion this year and our better half’s Butch and Clarence talking about our younger days and where your birthday came in with all of ours – none of us are getting any younger and I guess talking about the young days keeps us going so I decided to look you up and see how you are doing – it these are current photo’s of you – still the good looking guy with that sexy smile. I just wanted also to say Hi and if you are around the Austin area give us a shout out – we have retired and living in Butch hometown of Winchester, Texas – which is at the triangle of Giddings, LaGrange and Smithville (outside of Bastrop) I am glad you are doing well still love your voice and music
Loved Venus in Blue Jeans, Just a Dream and Go Jimmy Go. Those were great memories.
thank you for venus in blue jeans among others loved you on pbs
Hello: My big sister turns 70 the end of October….you were her teenage idol. We are having a party for her and are putting together a birthday video. Is there anyway you could record a 15 second video signing Happy Birthday to Kathy? Thank you sir.
Love hearing and seeing ANYTHING Jimmy Clanton. Have all your cd s. Looking foward to hearing your latest songs. Keep watching your face book page to see when I can buy it. God Bless!
Judy Le Normand
I am so glad to hear you are doing well. Your music was beautiful, sweet, and made us fall in love. So unlike the vulgar, crazy, insane stuff made today. God Bless.
Wow Jimmy Clanton, I just found out you were still around , and still performing, I really loved the song “Just a Dream”, so happy to hear I could request your friendship ❤️❤️
My older brothers & sisters liked your music, when I hear your song Just a Dream, I recall those days so long ago.
you were my idol when I was a teenager in the 50s you and Rickey Nelson were the best looking, I so wanted to look like you two lol but I turned out not too bad , thanks for the memories and God bless
I was blessed to have met Jimmy Clanton in Hawaii in the year 1959 or 60 and I thought he was so dreamy and a fabulous voice. So gifted. Thank you.
Well, just look at you!! Here I thought you had retired into private life never to be seen again!!!! What a joy and a pleasure to see this website!!
Thank you so much for your music! Indeed, it does take me back to all those year’s ago when we just kid’s, and, all of Life was ahead of us!!!
And, know that you are still a ‘star’ in my memories…and, today as well!!!!
Leah : )
Your music got my attention back in 1959. Your songs still make me smile!
JIMMY I FEEL SO BAD AS SOON AS I SUBMITTED MY MESSAGE I REALIZED I PUT YOUR MOVIE TITLE AS GO JOHNNY GO HOW FOOLISH OF ME I KNOW ITS GO JIMMY GO…PLEASE FORGIVE MY MISTAKE…GOD. BLESS
The title of the movie was “Go, Johnny, Go” where I played the lead Johnny Melody. The title of my song is “Go, Jimmy, Go.”
I love Jimmy and all his gorgeous music! Please don’t ever stop!
It’s great to be friends with one of my favorite all time recording artist.
My Own True Love played for my 25th and 50th Wedding Anniversaries. Hoping to have it played in 22 more years at 75th
Great website Jimmy. I will be back for sure.
Again, Thank you for your comments. I hope you enjoy looking around my website.
Good morning Jimmy!! Ormonde and I send our best!!
Remember us from Lancaster, PA
It was so great to see you again sunday. Thank you for taking time to sit and talk for awhile. You are wonderful and will always be my favorite Venus in Blue Jeans
Liked every one of your songs.
I am from the southern part of Louisiana. I have always loved your music and your golden voice. I am tickled pink to see and hear you again. I know God has led you to where you are today. Keep up the good work and my oh my how did a southern boy wind up in Pa? It sure gets might cold up there I bet. Well keep up the good work, we all love and appreciate your talent. God Bless and if you have a show near by or in Miss. I will surely be there.
Kathryn (Toddy) Arceneaux
I was going through my high school pictures from Baton Rouge High and found your picture. It brings back memories from my time in Baton Rouge and your music.
If you are ever playing in the Houston area I would love to see you. I remember the old times as I turn 75 today. I remember all the record hops and dancing to your music.
Thanks for the memories.
Bobby Braquet, Katy, Texas
Hi Jimmy, just got through listening to Rock and Roll Graffiti, gets better every time I listen. What a great event that was
Remembering the first time I heard him sing.
loved jimmy.still dol hope for good health for him and his family. god bless all of them
Peggy Mariani 31 W. Los Reales, Tucson Arizona. space 294 zipp 85756 this is a senior citizen park. keep on singing Jimmy. gives the world something nice when we need it so bad. Love You always. Peggy
Was being nostagic today and looked up your site. Met you in 1960, spent some time at your home in Baton Rouge around Easter, Your brother Ike and you did a show that day, your family was just wonderful, I will never forget them. You were still in the service at the time. Saw your Dad several years ago, your Mom was in the hospital at the time. It was nice to visit with him and catch up on old times and memories. I know all have gone home now, but they are still in my heart. I still catch you on some of the PBS shows. You remind me a lot of your Dad with all the white hair. I am sure with all the fans you have you won’t remember me, but just wanted to wish you all gods blessings and hope you and your family are well.
Hugs and Love God Bless
Thank you all for leaving your comments. I don’t respond to all but as I’ve said before, I do read each and every one of them. I really love my fans. You are so special to me.
Saw you for the first time in person in Ft.Pierce Fla. You were so great and it was a pleasure to meet you! Hope you come back again.
I just ordered the pictures I wanted of you. My son PAUL MYERS put it on his PayPal because I didn’t know how to do that part. Three different poster type pictures. I already have a key chain of you, I use. Look up PAUL Myers on Facebook. He shows his Collector Trans-Am in shows, all over surrounding states, for charity causes. Also he is a Big STAR WARS fan since the 70s and has a collection like your lures, except we went overboard on buying. Now they are collectors Edition, worth a lot of money.. I know you don’t have a lot of time to be looking at so much Facebook. It really takes up a lot of my time when I should be doing other things, constructive. Your pictures will come to me in the mail under Paul’s name. Tell Sandy I got the ones I wanted. GOD, bless you all. Love Bev
Thank you for your comments Bev. You write as if I don’t know who you are but I do. Sandy is sending the pictures in your name since she knew who the pictures were for unless you wanted me to autograph them to Paul instead of you. Just kidding!
I first met you in 1958 or1959 at the National Guard Armory in Hammond, Louisiana. After you sang you talked with me and another girl for a little while. You were so gentle and kind, not rushing us off. You had just sang, JUST A DREAM. We each got a 45 record somehow, I can’t remember. We are friends on Facebook and I appreciate the time you have given all of us growing older, with you. Your music has been with me all of my life. I lost you for awhile, then I found you again. Forever, be happy and healthy, this I PRAY for you. I really like Sandy and how much she has done for you and she still raised a family. Such a kind lady and I told her she is so very smart, in a lot of ways. You truly have been blessed in your life and you learned so much, to help yourself. We are all SO proud of your Ministry and love of GOD. You will never know how you have inspired so many people and changed their wrong way of thinking. I have talked with a few of my friends about you. We all share our love for you, as a friend and helper of things you could never know about. Betty was so good to me sending CD AND pictures, going out of her way, to make me so happy. I had, had so much trouble with Amazon Prime, thinking that was the only way to get your memories. I bet she handled them, well, for selling so many of your things without permission. They actually made a lot of money from selling and it was wrong of them. It took me a whole day to get things straight with them. I don’t know, I haven’t checked to see if they are still trying to sell your music, but I will. A lot of people just did not know where to go to get your music and pictures. Now it is settled, thanks to pretty Sandy. I will let you go, just know I pray for you and others every night. Healthy or suck, I have a long list. I usually have to tell GOD, you remember the lady I saw today that she has both legs operated on? Just in case I forget their name, HE remembers. Now, I’m going to listen to another one of your songs. Love Bev
Love you Jimmy, fell in love with you when I was about 12, you were the first music that I started listening to. And just in the last few months decided to type your name in the search to see what came up, I was so surprised to see you, and see that you are doing well and still entertaining . God Bless you, and I will always love you. Susan
Thank you for leaving a comment!
Your website is fantastic. But everything you do is awesome. I love the photos I have to come back and buy some. Love you Jimmy
Thank you. My webmaster will appreciate your comment
about a fantastic website which this is!!!
Great songs always.Thanks Jimmy, carry on
Jimmy, I have always loved your sound. I am able to recognize you even when in another room.
Thank You for being there and letting us listen.
Jimmy, I have been a fan since back in the day. I met you and heard you give your testimony for Christ around 1988. Your story concerning how you came to know Jesus as your personal savior is inspiring and to me more memorable than your music. I hope you are doing well and that you continue to prosper.
My relationship with Christ is far more meaningful and everlasting than my music. I have a page on Facebook called Jimmy Clanton Ministry where I write Biblical nuggets of scriptural truths.
Hi Jimmy, How is your book coming along?
There has not been much progress on the book.
Hi Jimmy, Just wanted to say that I have been a fan for many, many years. Thank you for your music and for your smile it always cheers me up when I am feeling a bit down. Long may you continue to keep making music and your many fans happy. Take care buddy. Pete.
Mr. Clanton, thank you for the music with which you have filled and enriched my life. My five children, ages ranging from 43 to 52, are fans of yours as well (having been surrounded from birth in our home with your songs). It is still gives each of us great joy to listen to, and many times sing along with you, when we are gathered. Many blessings to you and yours.
I’m a long time listener, I’m 40 years old. When I was about 10 years old I heard “Just a Dream” on the radio and became an instant fan of yours. Shortly after that, I stumbled across a copy of Go Johnny Go and would watch it every day for the next couple years. I became obsessed with the music of your era and have been ever since. Do you have any good memories of filming that movie? So many great musicians were involved. Anyway, I just had to write and let you know how much joy you have brought to my life and inspired me to sing and write songs. I am working on my third album right now.
Thank you for everything!
Thank you and I’m glad you have enjoyed “Go, Johnny, Go.” Contrary to what you see in the film, I did not see most of the musicians. Most of the filming of the performances was done in NY while the movie itself and the actors were in California.
I still remember seeing you perform at the Sydney Stadium, all those years ago, and had a chance to meet you after the show, you are were the perfect southern gentleman.
So please to hear you are still performing,
best wishes always
Thank you for taking time to comment. I love my fans and I appreciate you all.
I love your songs and you Jimmy
Hi Jimmy: You were and are the greatest. Roberta from Boston
Voice, looks, stage presence next to none.
You have a God given talent.
God bless you.
God bless America.
Hi Jimmy, I’ve been a fan for awhile, since 1958. Still a fan all these years later. Keep us Entertained for many more years to come, <3
I am semi retired and doing a very limited number of shows!
Thank you,thank you!!
In the mid t0 late 50′ I was not yet a teenager, about 8 years. Music was and is my favorite form of entertainment. As a child that young, I always remember hearing of you and listening to your music. You were one of the very first singer I loved and your music. To this day, when I hear your songs or your name, I reminisce. So glad to have found you again. Thanks for all of the good memories and entertainment. A loyal fan. Gaylyn Meyer.
GOD IS MOVING! I just received 2 royalty checks and an invitation to do a music video on a CD that is over 3 years old. I love to hear you sing Angel Face , & Don’t you know. So enjoy your new friends.
I just stopped to listen to Just a Dream and also listened to Ole Rock n Roller for the first time. It was a great, catchy tune–one you could dance to, as they would say on the Dick Clark Show. I was hoping you could tell me if you are related to neighbors of mine from long ago, Mildred and Jasper Clanton who had a daughter named Karen. They lived in Oakland, CA and they moved to Portland, OR. in the early 60s. Karen talked a lot about you and the wonderful songs you sang.
My name is Dave McColl, I have enjoyed your music. I really enjoyed hearing you sing Venus in Blue Jeans at the Pittsburgh theatre, and at the end of the song you introduced your wife of many years. I am 66 years old, and feel like you do, my Venus in Blue jeans has been in my life 32 years.
I enjoyed your music as a young kid while growing up in Detroit. I continue to listen and enjoy your wonderful music living in Florida. I finally am able to enjoy your music more often since owning my smart phone.
Each year, I travel from Florida to Arizona to see my family. I always think of you while passing through Louisiana.
Also, Congratulations on becoming a born again Christian and accepting Jesus Christ. Nothing is greater!
Take care good friend, and keep on playing and singing.
May God BLess you and your family.
We were neighbors on Alden Court in old Goodwood (Baton Rouge). I was at Goodwood Elementary (4th, 5th, 6th grade). I had such a “crush” on the cute older brother on the street. I would rake the leaves in front yard just to see U (riding a bike, I think). Never saw U perform; unlucky for me it’s too late. U wrote a note on Birdie’s obituary; that brought back the memory.
Dianna Spring (Marks)
Dianna, I so remember this one incident. I was sitting on my porch one hot day and all of a sudden you were walking on our street toward Keed Ave. and you had on a one piece blue bathing suit. My first thought was, “there is no pool in our neighborhood so she can’t be going swimming.” To be honest, it never occurred to me that you might be trying to get my attention, because you did!
I felt so honored to meet you Cincinnati. You truly are a consummate entertainer. You sure haven’t lost you voice through the years. Keep on rocking darlin. You know your fans are here for you.
Hope to see you again sometime.
my father was a fan of yours he has one of your albums unfourtanetly my father passed away 3 yrs ago, everytime i see your album brings tears.your music was prety good even my 16 yr old likes it
I have always loved your music. But take time for you and enjoy it.
Jimmy: You are truly one of the very best singers of all time. I had some photos taken with you at the Sunrise Theatre, Fort Pierce, Florida, last year. My family and I had a great time speaking with you. By the way, your hair is actually better than mine. Thank you for all of those great songs. All the very best to you! – Hugo Javier Concha, Esq. – http://www.ConchaLaw.com *** Check out my facebook photos at: Hugo Javier Concha
JImmy, My Grandfather owned “Landry’s Palladium” in Lafayette, La. I remember when you played there. My girlfriend and I were so excited when my father brought you over and introduced you to us. It was an extra special thing for 2 teenage girls that I will never forget. You still look and sound real good.
Hi Jimmy, can’t believe it will soon be a year since I met you. What a fun evening, and what fantastic memories! Thanks for all the music and entertainment, but I thank you even more for your wonderful ministry. I so look forward to your comments and “nuggets”. May Jesus hold you close, always, my brother in Christ.
Thank you for your comments…I have read each one of them! I have limited my performances on stage and trading them for performances with a fishing rod and reel. If you have never seen me perform in person, the next best thing is to purchase my “Farewell to the Bayou” DVD, which may very well be my final up close and personal one man show. It is 2 hours of Jimmy Clanton singing 19 or 20 songs.
The DVD, CDs and pictures are available here at the store on this website.
“Just a Dream” got me through my first broken heart in the late ’50s. Ditto for my second one. So great to hear it again. You’ve aged well, man. Hope to see you perform soon. Keep on keepin’ on.
My husband sings with The Devotions. He met you at The Theater at Westbury on Long Island. He enjoyed the preaching in your dressing room. We are Christians and also saw you at a church in our area, Faith in God’s Word. God bless you always.
Love your music. Saw you in Fort Lauderdale a few years ago at Parker Playhouse. Met you after the show outside at your table and bought your cd you were selling. Listen to it often. It would be wonderful if you could return to South Florida again. Unfortunately cannot travel up north. You are missed here.
Thank you. I would love to return to South Florida to perform.
STILL SOUNDING GREAT AFTER ALL THE YEARS.
I am so happy to see that you have your own web sight. I have always loved your music.🎶🎶🎶🎵🎵🎵
Thanks for being inside my 8 transistor Silvertone radio sitting on my chest – late at night when I listened to WMGM 1040 (?) and WINS – 1010 Radio from New York. All those nights of a ‘coming-of-age’ adolescent with songs in his head, under his breath and loudly sung in the shower. “Go Jimmy, Go” was my second best favorite to “Just A Dream” which certainly came in first.
I remember those 8th grade dances in the gym when the snow was too deep for outside recess – we’d have a sock-hop for lunch, and most of us would forgo the lunch to get into the gymnasium for the dance and the heck with being able to stay awake in chemistry class when we were too weak with hunger to even pay attention to the teachers.
I blame you — and me —- both of us really, for all the good things that happened to me and all the girls I danced with — at least I blame you for being such an attraction to us – all of us – as teenagers who only wanted to get along with everyone. The world was soon to change; little did we know that the demon trumpets of war were about to call and cut our youthful days short.
Well, I’m retired now and finally got to “The Last Best Place” — Montana. The air is clear and doesn’t smog-burn my Agent Orange soaked lungs like SoCal did. I came here to die slower than livong in California was going to do to me. But you don’t need to hear all that – this is about you, and I’ll never forget all that you and your music meant to me, my friends and my children who cringe when I bring out my old records (I have you on MP3s, so don’t worry – they don’t have any scratches and clicks like the old 45s did/do).
Stay well as long as you can and my prayers are with you since you are sincerely one of my favorite memories. I hope that gives you a warm feeling – it does for me.
All the finest to you and yours,
Wonderful to see you perform & meet you! You really were on my “bucket list”!
Thanks for the music that helped me navigate the teen age years. I still love the sound of your voice and I still have crush on you at 70+.
What a delight to meet you and have my picture with you posted on facebook.
Thanks for coming to Pottstown!
Love the song Venus in Blue Jeans.
Hi Jimmy! Just wanted you to know that you got me thru puberty & all its heartaches. Prior to you, it was Ricky Nelson (because my big sister wouldn’t let me pick Elvis) but once your sound hit my radio you knocked my socks off and sent me to heaven. Your name was all over my 7th grade notebook. I still get butterflies at the sound of your voice! Go Jimmy, Go!!
I was working for Ace Records when Jimmy Clanton recorded “Just A Dream” for Johnny Vincent Imbragulio.
Ann Wade Hart
WOW!!! How cool is that???? That is awesome!!!
Hi Jimmy, I saw the post about the tribute to Alan Freed.Is it true that “GO, Johnny, Go” was made in one week? Given that most of the cast hadn’t acted before, you all did an excellent job. Great movie, A classic!
Thank you to all of you who were kind enough to leave comments. I have read each and every one of them. I am truly humbled that you enjoy my music.
Hi Jimmy, I have tried to request a couple of your new songs on my local radio stations.Most here are owned by Iheart media group.They say they are not on their play list so can’t play them because of licensing? Any suggestions ?
The songs from the CD “Everybody Needs Love” have not been distributed for radio play at this time.
Jimmy……I am holding in my hand your 1958 hit A Letter To An Angel on ACE Records which I love to spin on my Rek O Kut turntable. This old Reading PA boy enjoys all your songs. Wish I could travel to Pottstown to see your concert. Best of luck to you on all your tours. And remember…you don’t shoot a 45….you play it!
You are a great talent.Keep up the good work.
Hello again Jimmy !! It’s been awhile since I have been to your lovely web site. I am getting alittle better everyday. your songs has sure helped me during all this & for that I thank you so much.I am well enough to join your facebook & will be so happy to see you there. sending lots of hugs .God Bless !! Diana
Met you back in the early sixties after you married my ex baby sitter. I was 10 years old in 1958 when Roxanne looked after me and my younger brother during the summer. My mother was a good friend of Bernice for many years until she moved to PA. Mother is 86 and wonders if Bernice is still around?
Bernice passed away several years ago!
Thank you for the reply
GOOD AFTERNOON MR CLANTON,
THERE IS NO WAY TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE YOUR MUSIC. YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL VOICE. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTON OF MY HEART FOR ALL THE BEAUITFUL MUSIC YOU HAVE GIVEN THIS WORLD OVER ALL THESE YEARS. ALL THE SONGS THE LATE 50’S AND LATER ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD WITH THE MELODY,HARMONY,RHYTHM THAT IS WHAT MUSIC IS ALL ABOUT. AGAIN I WANT TO
SINCERELY THANK YOU FOR ALL THESE YEARS SUCH BEAUTIFUL MUSIC YOU HAVE

Hello Jimmy…How well I remember the good ‘ole days when I was a teen and you were too and you sang so nicely…You still do and it’s nice to be able to hear you sing again…Thanks for your friendship on Facebook.
Mr. Clanton, I have enjoyed your music since I first heard your song ” Just A Dream ” being played at Brownies Cafe in Iowa, Louisiana in the very ealy 60’s. Now residing in Lake Charles, Louisiana, 55 plus years later still enjoy listening to your singing. Recently got the two latest CD, and play them in my shop while cleaning my vette. Thank you for the memories. Love that old Swamp Pop music.
Thank you and I’m glad you are enjoying my music!
Jimmy, I loved you at 13, you were so handsome, and so talented, I dreamed one day we would meet, and fall in love, I think that is a dream of every girl in her teens, I just recently found you on facebook, and couldn’t believe how good you still looked, with all your beautiful hair.
I Loved all your songs and still do. God bless you! Your the best.
Jimmy I loved your song Venus in Blue Jeans. I heard you sing it on PBS TV.it brought back good memories. Keep the memories coming. I do request you on al Radio show hope to see you some time when you come to Oklahoma.
OMG….it warms my heart, I remember so well, all the wonderful songs and feelings. thank you Jimmy for your talent, grace and smile. God Bless you and warm hugs to you !!!!
Dear Jimmy, Just a note to let you know how much I enjoyed hearing you sing last night at Hauppauge High school but most of all for praying together with all of you for my grandson Ryan. I feel truly blessed and believe very strongly in the power of prayer. God bless you all. and Thank you so much. Looking forward to seeing you again. I put in a friend request on Face book. My nickname is Bonnie.
I am a DJ in Adelaide, South Australia, and love your work. One of my fellow DJ’s plays your songs on his Saturday program every week, without fail.
Would it be possible for you to record an id / sting for him and email in mp3 format ?
If so, just send me an email address where I can send the details.
All the very best Jimmy ….

Just stopped by to say hello and keep up the great work. Love some of the new stuff and look forward to hearing more. May God bless and take care.
We were reminiscing about our teen years and loved “Just a Dream” We are friends of Nancy and Jerry Hassel!
Blessings for a great many more years !!
Judy and Dan Evans
Jimmy, I absolutely love everything that you do! I have fond memories of the songs of the early sixties when I was just out of High School when we as teens lived to dance….I mean dance holding each other and not all this jumping all over the dance floor. These songs have meaning and as such mean so much to me. Of course just to mention a couple, “Just a Dream” and “A million to one” are two greats that I absolutely love. The truth be told, it’s your voice that makes all your songs sound so good!…….oh, and if you ever pass through my little town of La Place, I would just love to meet you sone day!
God Bless and stay safe!
Thank you, Bobby. Enjoy your comments on Facebook!
Jimmy I feel I’ve known you for years. Being a DJ some years back I’ve introduced you and your music so many times. Not only because the crowd loved it, but I always loved your sound. You are truly a great entertainer. I’ve was lucky enough to see you a few times in the past, never a disappointment, you were great. I look forward to seeing you again in Pottstown Pa. Hopefully I will get to say hello. Till then, take care and keep on singing the greatest music of all times. David Jay
Dave, Thank you. Make sure you introduce yourself to Sandy and me at the merchandise table.
I have had the privalege of performing as well. My music is Traditional Honky-Tonk Country. I recorded under the name of Hank Morris & Honky-Tonk Country. But I love watching your movies, & hearing that smooth touch of blues voice of yours. My favorite song is Angel Face. I live in Louisiana. Come see me if you are in the neighborhood. Thanks Jimmy.
As a Oldies Dee Jay in the Detroit area for the past 30 years, I can attest to the fact that Jimmy Clanton has had the most requests for songs on my show. Jimmy set the bar for future Rock & Roll Artists and has ALWAYS been a CLASS ACT! My personal favorite is ‘A MILLION DRUMS”. Jimmy, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!
I’m humbled and very appreciative of your remarkably kind comments. I’m honored! Thank you.
I bought your CD of Everybody Needs Love and we just love it all. My husband breaks down in tears when he hears you sing Everybody needs love. Your songs having such meaning to them. saw you at the Bloomsburg Fair but unfortunately we didn’t get the chance of meeting you in person because we were with another couple.Due to my husbands health,I just couldn’t come to see you in Pottstown,would love to but can’t. Good luck and May God Bless you.

Here in Modesto, California (Central Valley), a local “oldies” station played JUST A DREAM a few days ago and I was startled that the song brought back so many sweet and delicious memories. With a few friends, I saw you perform JUST A DREAM as a very young man at a theater in Washington, D.C. along with some other young rock ‘n rollers who were also on the bill. What an exciting time! Of course, all of us girls fell in love with you. I’m glad you continue to perform because your hits bring back so many great memories. Do you think you will ever get to Central California? I’m sure you’d have fans here–we have a new theater, the Gallo Center for the Performing Arts. It’s a truly wonderful and classy place. Judy Collins, the Beach Boys Tribute Band and many others have performed there. It would be great to welcome you and your band to Modesto (population 220,000). In the meantime, best wishes always to you and your family. Keep the music alive!!
I am such a huge fan of Jimmy Clanton. I absolutely love Venus In Blue Jeans. That is one of my favorite songs ever. I have seen him in the movie Go Johnny Go on YouTube. He has such an amazing voice. I also love Go Jimmy Go and Just A Dream.
I am on Facebook as Jimmy Clanton.
Hey, Jimmy.. For the last few years I have gone on the Malt Shop memories cruise on Holland America out of Fort Lauderdale. So, how come we haven’t seen you on that cruise yet? Last year we were lucky to have Neil Sedaka, Frankie Avalon, Bobby Rydell and Chubby Checker; just to name a few. Sure would like to see you on one of them. Glad you are still performing. You sang some great songs. My favorite has always been Venus In Blue Jeans…such great words. Continued luck to you.
No promotor has contacted me about a cruise performance. I do not seek out promotors for gigs.
Great music jimmy

Very honored to meet JImmy Clanton. WE have watched him perform at Hauppauge for the last two years and we are back for more in 2016. Love you Jimmy and love your sound xx
It takes us a while to get there from Australia, but the trip is truly worth it.
Make sure you make yourselves known to me. We always have a table out in the big hallway entrance to the auditorium at Hauppauge.
I remember the Bandstand appearance!
I love Jimmy Clanton so much!
Loved you back then and still do. You are the best Jimmy.
Bobsdoowopbrooks@aol.com / Jimmy wend i first met you,was on Alan Freed Show, by the way you Look very Good, Alan Freed would be very Happy for you, Go JONNY GO !!!
Thank you for your kind comment!
My husband and I just heard you sign Go Johnny Go on XM Radio and it brought back memories for me. I live in Southern California, the San Fernando Valley, are you going to be performing here in the future
I performed in Cerritos in January. There are no shows scheduled in California at this time but there may be something in the future. Keep looking at my schedule here on my website.
jimmy you autographed a picture for me at the rochester n.y. war memorial in the late 50’s when you were touring with the dick clark show. I still have all your top 45’s in my collection and wonder if you have a CD of your original hits that i could purchase.
My songs are on CDs available for purchase in the store on this website.
Jimmy I have an 8 track of your movie GO Johnny Go if you would like it.I’d be glad to give it to you.Did you know that Sandy Stewart is still performing? I believe she lives in Florida.
Thank you very much. I do have a copy of “Go, Johnny, Go” and yes I did know that Sandy Stewart lives in Florida.
I am a big fan of yours. When you had the radio program hex I won a few roses .I didn’t have far to go since I lived in Mount joy. Glad to find you again . I am a friend of Marlyn Kaufman I saw your picture with him..I am going to find you on Facebook. Keep on singing.

Nothing like the oldies, you could understand what you were singing.
Really enjoy listening to the “oldies” ! Brings back so many good memories! Thank you
Jimmie, Myron Lee and the Caddies were the back-up band on the 1963 tour.He took films of the tour.They are on youtube.Just fun to watch.I realize that Cimmie was a different guy.Did your tour start in the south? Or the north.Sadly there weren’t too many black bus drivers in the south in those days. They weren’t allowed.
Jimmy and Sandy, There is a bus drivers union in Louisiana.They might be able to help you locate the driver you want.You can find them on the internet.This was the 1959 tour to all the theaters in Monroe, Ruston, etc. to promote Go, Johnny, Go, right?
The bus tour driver Cimmie who Sandy is looking for drove my tour bus in the winter of 1960. It was not to promote “Go, Johnny, Go.”
Hi Jimmy, I saw a post by you mentioning a bus driver you met on tour long ago.If you go to YouTube Music and type in Myron Lee and the Caddies there are videos from a Dick Clark bus tour back in 1963.You are shown getting off the bus, the buses and the drivers are shown too,on Part 3.There is also a Christmas party where you are dancing with your wife back then.These videos will bring back a lot of memories I am sure.I first saw them on Bobby Vee’s website.By the way did you know he has alzhiemers now? His wife of 50+ years recently passed away.Very sad time for him. He is one of the nice guys,like you. Always fun to look back on the good old days of Rock and Roll.
Myron Lee is not the bus driver Sandy was looking for. She has been looking for a driver named Cimmie from New Orleans who was the the driver for my own Jimmy Clanton tour.
Wish you would schedule a concert at Turning Stone Casino Show Room in upstate N Y.
Several people have mentioned that they’d like to have me come to Turning Stone Casino. I’d be happy to perform there sometime.
Jimmy, you’re my all time favorite. When I hear your songs, it brings great memories and a smile. You’re the best !
Jimmy, Enjoyed seeing the pictures of Thailand.What a beautiful venue.You are beloved the world over.Wish you could join us at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake Iowa again this year for the Buddy Holly Winter Dance Party. It would be lovely to see you perform in person.I missed you the last time.I recognized the picture you have up from there. Linda Cahalan
Enjoy seeing your comments Mark Lollis Oklahoma
Jimmy, you were my first crush, and I never forgot you. All your songs are wonderful, but I get chills every time I hear you sing JAD. I’m now hoping for another concert a little closer to home before your retire for good. Maybe if (when) I win the lottery, I will be able to travel up your way. Until then, we’ll just hang out on FB.
Many years ago at the Whole Foods Market in Houston on the corner of S. Shepherd and Kirby, Carl, a chef at A Moveable Feast, introduced us. It was at that time I told you that my favorite song when I was younger was your “Venus in Bluejeans.” As an idealistic teenager, I imagined it was written for me, lol. One thing I was amazed about is how wonderful you looked, and I’ll bet you still do. You have aged so well. Thank you for your beautiful music and your beautiful soul. I will never forget meeting you. It meant so much to me.
I have loved you since American Bandstand and I will always be your fan. Loved your performance last night at Cerritos Performing Arts. Hope to see you again soon.
I have seen you many times in concert and hope to see you <any <ore
We are really looking forward to seeing you Saturday night in Cerritos, CA. Hope you sing “A Part of Me!” My ’53 Merc had “Just A Dream” written on the back fender! Love your music!!!!

Each year we come to Hauppauge from Australia and each year you are simply amazing Jimmy.
We love to see you, talk to you and most of all, listen to you sing <3
Thank you. I’d love to come back to Australia to do a concert!
Love you brother. My hope is I’ll get to see you in concert some day.
Jimmy, Sandy, your managers name came back to me, as i wrote before, a friend of mine, like to buy something from your store, but we both got stucked, could not figure out how to contact or pay, you should alter it, in a better manner, anyway next month i will see my friend Colin Blunstone again, once the leadsinger of the Zombies, in the last couple of years i met sir Bob Geldof, and Graham Gouldman of 10 CC, BUT MY REAL INTEREST IS WITH THE 50s, early 60s, the period of Jimmy, it should be more easy to get his signature!
Cheers, dr. Louis.
We are not set up to sell outside the USA. Sandy, my Executive Associate can be reached at email@example.com
L.S.; Last year April, i sent a vintage picture to get it signed by him, did it via his manager, forgot her name, till now Jan 16 NO REPLY! A friend of me, and me also want to buy something from the store, but do not know how where there is a contact mentioned, or how to pay, am very dissapointed, my newest mailaddress is; louvderloo@Hotmail.com
Furthermore i like to stay a friend, caus he and Sandy Always were very friendly, but have a bad feeling about this, even Paul Mc Cartney still sends me a xmascard, and in my opinion, he is the B iggest, living legend!
Cheers, dr. Louis van der Loo.
Sandy is very efficient and responsive to all requests that she receives. There must be a problem with the mailing. Is there any way, you can tell us which picture it was you sent? You can send a copy to our email at firstname.lastname@example.org We will then see about getting you a signed picture.
Pictures of me performing in Thailand will be on this website soon!
Are you going to post any pictures of your trip to Thailand here? Would find them very interesting.
I’ve liked your music since I heard “Just A Dream” in the summer of ’58 while vacationing in Florida. My favorite though was “My Own True Love”. a song which I like to play and sing myself.
Love your music. Joe Binkley ,Baton Rouge LA
You’ve been one of my favorites since 14 years old…..way back in the late 50’s. It’s wonderful to hear you singing and performing. My formative years were in the south and you definitely bring that special touch only a southern singer can do with emotion and feeling. Been a Californian since 1957 but my soul is with your songs.
Do you remember Kenneth and Jerry Webb? We lived on Keed Ave. when we were all growing up?
Tonight, we heard a lady from Sun Records, Barbara Sims … gave a talk at our Knife & Fork club in Houston … where we live. I asked her if she knew you and of course she said “yes”.
So glad to see you are still going strong? Be well, Jerry
Absolutely, I remember you!!!
Loved that hair !!!
Want to share with you, my boyfriend back in 1960 would sing Poetry In Motion to me. Oh the good old days. Thank you for your music.
Poetry In Motion was sung by Johnny Tollitson. My favorite song sung by you Venus In Blue Jeans.
Hello !! so sorry I am so late with this but have been having health issues lungs aren’t doing to good right now. anyways, just wanted to say Happy veterans day N to Thank you so much for your service.*HUGS* Diana
Hi Mr. Clanton! My name is julie George & my dad is Sidney George Jr. I am calling him every couple of weeks to talk to him about his music career. I think he mentioned playing with you at one time in his younger days in the 50’s/60’s think in Baton Rouge. I am wondering if you remembered him. He was from Thibodaux. He had some really nice things to say about you. I am wondering if you remember him and if you had memories about those days and his musical talent that you might want to share so that I can put in my family history book or possibly any newspaper articles with him in it that I might be able to get a copy of. I am sorry to bother you with so many requests but I am just interested in putting together some information about his music career. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much for your time. I hope you and your family have a happy & blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas. Julie
I appreciate your search for this information. Unfortunately, now in my 58th year of a musical career playing every state in the union and overseas, I apologize but I can not remember every engagement or every back up band member. There are thousands of musicians I’ve worked with. I’m sorry I can’t give you the information you’d like. I have no collection of memorabilia, newspaper clippings etc. of my own.
Jimmy, I am glad you enjoyed the photographs. Have a safe trip to Thailand. Linda
I am so grateful to you who come to my website and bother to leave a comment. Even though I don’t reply to all of you…I do read them all!!! Thank you.
I have been a fan since I was 16. I am now 68. I enjoy your music so much.

You’re joking you never heard of him or songs wow unbelievable he was great made movies with Chuck Berry Had lots of songs Late 50s early 60s done hundreds of concerts.Why did you stop making T.V.appearances?Us older fans would love seeing you again.
Harold, Life goes on and there are seasons for everything! Check my schedule for where I’m performing or go to the store on this website and perhaps you’d like the DVD “Farewell to the Bayou”…my 2 hour one-man special up close and personal where I sing 19 of my songs.
Enjoyed your music at the Doo-Wop concert in Denver.
Glad you could come.
We really enjoyed your performance at the Doo Wop concert at the Paramount Theatre in Denver this evening. You are still amazing after all these years. Venus in Blue Jeans is one of my all time favorite songs. Hope you’re able to continue performing for many years. God bless you!
He still has the greatest smile!
I have loved you & your music since 1957 when you came to False River. I remember your brother, Ike, too. I dated Les Hooper whom I know you remember back in the ole days. Brings back good memories…..Stay sweet !!
We have been listening to Jimmy’s singing since the late 50’s & early Sixty”,. I was a young teenager back then , he will forever be one of our Great Favorites.

Good to see that Jimmy is still entertaining. A real neat guy back then, and I’m sure he still is.
Welcome to my website. I do remember the Jimmy Menutis Club…Telephone Rd, Houston
enjoyed you many years Jimmy. that photo of you I remember on american bandstand
You were my favorite singer when I was a teen, and when I hear your songs, they are still great. I’m so glad to hear you are happy and still singing.
I need to look at your website to see what you are doing now. Any plans of performing in Alaska?
Best of everything to you and your family.
Gloria, There are no plans at this time for me to perform in Alaska.
This was a wonderful ceelbration of Mike and Bette Jo’s service with The Salvation Army. Wished we could have been there! Thank you for sharing for those of us not able to attend.
Jimmy, you are more distinguished looking, than ever, with your white hair! Keep on singing!
Debbie, from Thibodaux, La.
I fell in love with his movie GO JIMMY GO!
I thought it was the Best Movie I ever seen. I’m disable due to brain surgery and love all his songs I’ve lost memory of many years back but I’d like to Thank Jimmy Clanton for all his songs so when I’m sad and I know I won’t ever be with another man I dream of Jimmy Clanton movie “GO JIMMY GO” and I’m that girl he fell in love with. God Bless You Mr. Jimmy Clanton and stay Handsome. I hear Just A Dream just so I can go to sleep. Blessings Sir Blessings. From DonnaKay Katherine Kinnaman
Thank you Donna Kay!
Keep the good music playing
Hi Jimmy, If you have a moment, google Kathy’s Wall at IamnotJerry.com.Kathy was a young girl with polio who was a regular at Danceland Ballroom in Cedar Rapids IA in the 50’s and 60’s. She took pictures and kept a scrapbook of all the singers who appeared there.They are on the wesite- Bobby Darin, Buddy Holly, Fabian, JIMMY CLANTON, even Alan Freed.You are on page 6. It’s a real walk down memory lane.Enjoy. Linda
Thank you for telling me about these pictures. I had not seen most of them before. Thank you for the picture of your wall that you sent to my office. Luv,…Jimmy
can anyone tell me if the cd in the store here named all hits & more if they are songs recorded from back in the 50′ /60’s or are they resent??? Thank you so much for any help . *HUGS* Diana
They were all recorded back in the 50’s and 60’s
Diana, I responded to your private email. They were all originally done in the 50’s and 60’s.
Jimmy Do you remember Red Don’t Go with Blue and All the words in the World? Do you still perform them? Remember learning the words and trying to get the band to back me up. All the memories.
Yes, I still perform my hits on the Doo Wop shows. (see my schedule here on my website) I am relearning some very early songs that I wrote and recorded so that I can sing them in Thailand in November. They requested some I didn’t even remember recording.
A big fan of yours, all music of the past and present! I enjoy memories since mine are all gone due to Katrina! Still living in hope for a better tomorrow! Best,

Happy Birthday !! Hope you have many more,, *HUGS* Diana
Dear Jimmy, Wishing you a very Happy Birthday. Best of everything tommorrow and always. Linda
I recently saw an interview on youtube in which you stated you were going to write a book. Is that in the works and if so, when can we expect to see it for sale? So grateful to you for continuing to share your talent with people. I was born in 57 but was lucky enough to catch on to the best music ever when the british invasion cooled down in the early 70’s and all those doo wop , and R&B artists were resurging as “oldies”. Thank goodness! I’ve been a fan ever since – thanks for keeping the music alive!
We’re still working on that book!
Just love your music. I was wondering have you ever noticed the similiarity between Venus in Blue Jeans and the hit by Gerry and the Pacemakers called Ferry Across the Mersey. They may owe you some writing and royalties credit
I was about 10 when I first heard your awesome song Just a Dream. I used to sing it all the time. I wanted to have it as my wedding song for the bride N groom dance but would you believe no one knew what song or who I was talking about. I always remembered the name of song N your first name growing up but had your last name in my mind as clayton..I spent yrs, trying to find your songs but never was able. then in 2006 I joined this chat group .in my profile there I had Just a dream as my favorite song.one of the girls there asked me about it N a couple of days later I thought I had died N gone to heaven. she put a link to your wonderful song.I cried for days. I play that song every night before I go to bed.. when I was in hospital for my lung cancer surgery my grandson came to visit me N had downloaded just a dream on his phone ,can’t tell you how much it meant to me.. I can’t wait to feel better so he can help me get just a dream N a few more of your cd’s to treasure. Thank you so much for being you N for given us so many wonderful memories. wish I could hug you for real but will send you tons of online hugs in place.. *HUGS N LOVE * Diana
Friend request me on Facebook and keep up with my daily activities. I think you’ll find a lot of support there.

I would really like it if you could come to Ft. Worth, David. I am planning some special things for that show on June 4, 2016 at the Cendera Center.
Hello Jimmy: I am a big fan of yours. Born in 1945, I love the 50s music, and you were one of the best of that era. I would love to see you in person. Do you have any plans in the future to come to Atlanta (my home is there) or to Pigeon Forge, TN? We go there every year, and would really love to see you in a show, live! Keep on with your great music!
Ed Callison, native Southerner, Vietnam veteran of the US Army, and cancer survivor—-grateful to God every day!
There is nothing schedule at the moment for me to perform in Georgia or Tennessee. Keep checking my schedule here on this website for the most up to date information.
Hello Jimmy, what a great voice you have, I just bought the DVD of the movie “Go, Johnny, Go” and loved every minute of it, will you ever visit England? it would be nice.
Could I be cheeky and ask for a signed photo? I am 66 years old & now into your music.

I will personally autograph any picture that you purchase from the store on this website. I have no plans to come to England to perform at this time.
From early teenage years, I have loved Just a Dream. Still have all my 45’s of your songs. You were the greatest and still love to hear you sing!!! Would love to have an autograph and do you ever tour in Florida?
I perform in Florida frequently but I have nothing scheduled at the moment. Check this website for my schedule.
I really love Jimmy Clanton! Is there anyway I can have his autograph? That would be special! Thanks!
Come to one of my performances. I take pictures with fans, give autographs, hugs, and sometimes kisses.
i’m a fan. Come to Palm Beach County.
I was in Florida several times last year. Look on this website for my schedule.
Last year i saw you on PBS and before you sang venus in blue jeans you dedicated it to your wife i thought that was so sweet.
Jimmy when God puts you in his favor look what a blessed journey you are awarded. You have been blessed and are still sharing your wonderful talents with us! After a ll these years I am hoping to make it to one of your concerts . I have a question, after looking at the scheduled events they are all in coldddddddddd places for the dates (overseas is definitely out of the question). Do you not like the SOUTH and a warmer place to visit? I am in the Orlando, Florida area….and it would be so much easier if you came to the visit in the SOUTH.
Continued Blessing and if the Lord is Willing I will be sitting in the audience for one of your concerts.
I’ve done several concerts in Florida in the past few years. Keep checking the schedule on this website for the latest information.
My all time favorite song has always been ‘Venus in Blue Jeans’ and your voice is extraordinary. It has always made me smile and brings back great memories. Tonight I had on ‘Rock Pop and Do Wop’ on PBS and you came on, began to sing, and I melted! You still have the magic! I hope you are well and make it to Indianapolis soon. Take care, God Bless and keep crooning! ….Cynde
I kept the 50s and 60s alive all through out the 1970s in the Bronx, NY. I played Venus and Dream every show I did in the clubs, bars, and schools. I just saw the show on PBS that T.J. put together.
I am amazed that you still hit the high ones. Love the fact that you are still singing.
Bill Donovan and his Record Machine.
Thank you again for all the music.
Coming to south fl.? Lot pf old farts like still love the old rock&roll and doo-wop
Love your music all my life, hope you perform in North Dakota or close. I will keep checking dates take care. Kevin stein
Thank you all for your kind words. I do read ALL your comments even though I don’t reply to all of you! Luv ya!!!
I tried to copy your hairstyle and voice when I was just a teenager in 1959. Now we both have the same color hair but you still have that voice. You are still a great performer. Keep going strong.
Saw you in ft Pearce (sunrise Theater. Excellent!
I grew up in South Louisiana listening to your music. I had a flashback this morning and wanted to hear “Just a Dream”. Then found this.
Just wanted to say, it was a wonderful time, thanks to you and others like you.
I love you dad!! Growing up in our household was such a privilege and joy that I have never taken for granted! I cherish every memory with you and will never forget the magical moment on stage with you at the Raceland show. When you asked me to choreograph and dance to “If I” with you singing on stage, I felt like I was dancing on the clouds! Thank you for being my girls “singing grandpa” and sharing your life so freely with your family and friends…you are truly loved and adored!
It could very well be that you are going to get another chance to do your ballet on stage with me to “If I” one more time. Love, Dad
I love your songs and movies wish you come.to. Chicago
Hi Jimmy, I was just looking at your website and want to say hello. It was such an honor to meet you at Foxwoods. I have been a fan since I first heard you singing. You and Sandy are a great team for sure. I hope Alice and I will have a chance to see you again . Take care Jimmy and don’t over due as my Mother used to say. Love you both , Judy Morris
Jimmy, it was nice to meet you and your friends at memquisit. We were the friends with the two boys (our sons) at the table next to you during breakfast. Im the kindergarten teacher. I must admit that i had not heard your music since i was raised in a different era. However, having listened to some of your music, i realize that you have a wonderful melodic voice. God gave you a gift. I will listen to more and enjoy. God bless jimmy, and i hope we meet again some day. If you ever find yourself in waterloo ont, email me.
Wow! What a surprise! Thank you for your kind words. “Friend” request me on Facebook if you are on there.
Have always loved your music, Grew up listing to it!
Really enjoy your music
Really enjoy your music and your video go Johnny go head for years I God bless you
I saw your performance as part of the Legends of Doo Wop show in Upland, CA and you were outstanding! I was sitting next to one of the ladies you gave a handkerchief to, which became her highlight of the night (I didn’t know the lady). But your voice was strong unlike so many performers of the past trying to keep their careers alive. You were a highlight of a show that had many great moments. I wish you the very best, especially traveling all the way to Thailand to perform.
Take care and God bless (and thanks for running a clean show!)
Tim James, Upland CA
Thank you for letting me know this and for your encouragement!
Looking through old records and found ”Just A Dream”. One of my absolute favorites from my youth. So glad you are still alive and well Jimmy.
Just got home from the Upland, CA concert and it was just great meeting you, your daughter and GrandDaughter. Your music has always seemed so “pure” to me and it makes me long for a love that I never had. Thanks for allowing the DVD to be made. I haven’t watched it yet but DVD’s of favorite artists’ concerts are so invaluable when it’s not possible to see them in person frequently.
Thank you for your lift of wonderful music. I am so happy that you have put “If I” on both the DVD and the extended CD.
May God continue to bless you and your family. See you in Heaven,if not before.
Lake Arrowhead, CA
i saw you on an oldies show and loved your performance. I am 55, my husband is 75, and I told him if I ever leave him it’ll be for you. I was, of course, just kidding. Your voice touched me. Can’t explain what it is. Keep up the performances. Maybe someday I’ll get to meet you
Hi Jimmy! Only 2 days before show time here in S. Ca. I can’t wait to see and hear you once again. Maybe I will bring my Jimmy Happy/ Blue again and you can signed the other side if you have time. You signed jimmy Happy 5/14/10. Yes Jimmy, you do make me happy and so many more that were lucky to grow up in our awesome generation. We lived through the best music ever and all your songs are on my I Pad and I Phone.
Have a safe trip here as you prepare to give your devoted fans so much enjoyment.
Love your music. I have ever since I was a teenager. Please come to East Tennessee or close to here.
met you at our high school on feb. 7th, 1959.in spring valley, il. just 4 days after the terrible plane crash in iowa. but you showed up as a sub, and came to our school and gave a short concert for those that never had tickets for the night show. i never forgot that. ty jimmy.. your “FRIEND” denny galetti sr.
I am a senior citizen who has always loved Jimmy’s music. So glad he is still performing.
I am from Louisiana bayou country like you. Just dropping in to say hello.
I want you all to know I READ YOUR COMMENTS HERE…!!!…However, I CANNOT reply to each of you !!!…….. there are TOO MANY, GANG…!!!!…..Luv, luv, my fans…!!!!!….Jimmy……
As I get older I want to know about the “Singer and His Song”. I am a veteran and a avid karaoke backtrack singer. I belong to a veterans post and I would like to inform and cause to recall my audience about about Jimmy Clanton and his music.
This is all with you consent of course. Look forward to hearing from you. Thank you and thank you for your songs and music.
Hey old man I can’t believe you’re still alive and kicking! Way to go! Walking down memory lane this morn looking up some of the old acts I played with and found your website, not many of us still alive. I guess those little girls are all grown up now. Best wishes to you and your family! Keep on keeping on! “Here We Go!”
Listen to the oldies all the time and you are one of my favorites. Brings back a lot of good memories.
Thanks for that. I live in Jacksonville, fl. are you ever going to come here so that I can enjoy your music in person?
sorry it’s taken me so long to sign, I’m Italian, what can I say, I do things backwards… anyway, love this site…thanks for having me, looking forward to all the news you send me….
I have been wanting to be able to respond to your comments and that ability just became possible here on my website. Thank you to Carolyn and Joe for making it possible to do this. Jimmy
Can’t wait to see you again. I saw you at Cerritos Performing Arts 5/14/10 and brought my Jimmy Happy album that I paid $7.98 for back when you were my teenage idol. Matter of fact you still are!
I waived it in the balcony and you told me you would meet me to sign it after the show which you did. That was one of the most exciting nights for me. I still have your music only updated on my I phone.
Thanks Jimmy for being so nice. I will see you July 18!

I remember fondly having dinner with you, Curtis Lee, Ray Peterson (whom I dated), & managers in NYC in (I think) 1961. We then drove to a club in Brooklyn where each of you guys did a few numbers on the stage. It was a fun evening.
And do you remember receiving a letter that you thought was a draft notice, when you appeared at the Indiana Theater in Indianapolis with the Cavalcade of Stars (?) in the late ’50s? It was just a fan letter from me with a pic of me in the Miss Putt Putt contest. I had sent the letter in my dad’s envelope with the printed return address including his rank & some military abbreviations. You were so relieved it wasn’t a draft notice. You called me about midnight (waking up my whole family), & when I wouldn’t believe it was you, you put Bobby Rydell on the phone to assure me it was you.
Just wanted let you know I still remember your folks’ home address in Baton Rouge – where you received several letters from me. Don’t know why I remembered that address.
Loved all your songs, and danced to them many times. I went on to make personal appearances with the Demensions (“Over The Rainbow”, “My Foolish Heart”) at Palisades Park & Patterson NJ Armory among others (I was also secretary to the national director of publicity & promotion at Decca, Coral & Brunswick Records). Since NY was a union town, their original girl singer, Marisa, did the recordings, & since she was married & expecting, I did the personal appearances with the guys. Coral didn’t think a teenage singing group should have a girl singer who was expecting.
I hope somehow you get to see this message, and maybe remember some of the instances I’ve written here. Would love to hear back from you, but don’t know if it would really be you, if I do get an answer. Take care………..
It was nice to read your comment and hear your stories!! And this is the real Jimmy.
gosh WOW !!, lucky you !!
Such fun to see you still singing
Listening to the oldies on Music Choice and whenever they play one of your songs I have to stop what I’m doing and just concentrate on that song. Your voice is so unique. It’s like Calgon taking me away to a more simpler time in my life. Thanks for the memories!!
Hi there cousin.
My mom, Miss Liz was your mom’s sister., My aunt Joyce.
So happy to be able to listen again to your wonderful music.
Remember those days in Galliano, LA and your first concert in New Orleans.
I just had a flashback to my teen years in the 50’s and had to look you up. I remember seeing you in a movie and boy did I try to style my hair like yours. I enjoyed your music very much. Keep on rockin’. You are truly an inspiration to us old time rockers.
Always loved that song “Just A Dream “
Here in the UK Jimmy never had the recognition he deserved, his Venus In Blue Jeans was far superior to the English version by Mark Wynter that made the Hit Parade here. Jimmy made some great recordings, my favourite has always been Another Sleepless Night, it has always mystified me why this wasn’t a huge smash.
Thank you for the kind comment…unfortunately, Ace Records did not have good distribution overseas…don’t think the owner of the Company had any idea I would have such ”wide” success here in America, and he did not take necessary steps to make that change for the kind of distribution overseas as some of the other big record companies…Jimmy…
Would love to see a live NY show if possible. Thank God for You Tube. Can listen to you and “Venus in Blue Jeans” all day. Thank God for you.

Dear Jimmy, You were my absolute favorite singer in the 60’s. The best singer of all the teen idols of the time. I had your pictures all over my bedroom. I saved my allowance for a year to buy your double album Jimmy’s Happy/ Jimmy’s Blue.I met you once at Danceland Ballroom in Cedar Rapids Iowa, but I was so in awe of you that I couldn’t speak. I think I was 14 at the time.I just rewatched Go Johnny Go and recently purchased a CD of the double album and I am enjoying listening to it all over again. Just wanted to tell you all I couldn’t tell you back then.So good to see you doing so well after all this time.God Bless. Linda ( which of course is my favorite song you sang).
Linda, this is soooooo sweeeeet of you…. check out the Raceland Show dvd, here on my store… you will hear all the JC songs you would love of me…friend request me on facebook, where I interact with all my fans…!!!…luv, Jimmy…..
I just love your music sure wish you could sing at treasure island resort and casino in red wing, mn
Jimmy: Good to see you are still doing what you love. Would like to get together sometime to talk about the old days in Lancaster. Still living near there. Will catch one of your shows when you get nearby. Good luck to you and the family. Barrie Boas
still have a great voice!!
I Love Your Music. Your Music Bring Back So Many Good Memories Of Times Past Which Can Only Be Relived As We Close Our Eyes And Listen To Your Wonderful Songs. Thank You Very Much.
Love your music
My first record was “Just a Dream” in 1958 at age 11 and would love to see Jimmy in concert Texas
Hello Jimmy…big fan and so glad to see that you are still rocking and rolling! I am almost 70 and still playing drums and singing in a band with friends. Take care and rock on!
First time I saw u person was in Houston,Texas, I was about 13 years old I fell in love with you
I fondly remember hearing you and your brother harmonizing on your grandmother’s front porch in Coffeeville. The two of you were great performers and pretty darn good baseball players. The first time I heard the opening lines of “Just a Dream”, I knew it was your voice even before it was announced. Congratulations on a great career.
I have included playing baseball in Coffeeville during my summers there in my forthcoming autobiography.
How I loved you back then. Glad you’re still here and doing well. I also live in Pa.
Love you Jimmy.Love your music. Most of all your love for Jesus.Thank you for all you do , and all you stand for.Your friend Pastor Clint Miller
I so enjoy your music. I now live in the Daytona Beach area and hope you can come to Florida some time soon…
Good to hear you’re still out there singing the great songs. Saw you a while back on RFD-TV on a 50’s/60’s Reunion type show. I’m originally from Oklahoma but retired to Arizona a year or so ago and live near Laughlin, NV. They still appreciate the oldies out here. Wish you could make it to Laughlin some time. Riverside Casino probably books most of the “mature” singers. Again, good to see you’re still out there!
I think you are one of the finest singers of the last 50 years. What a performer and all around great gentleman. Keep singing and we will keep listening. My wife Joann is crazy about you and thinks you have the most beautiful hair. Thanks for the music!
Was just enjoying the old songs on you tube so I decided to look at the website I always loved Jimmy’s voice.
Love you Jimmy
Looking forward to seeing you in Denver on October 17th at the Doo Wop concert. My wife is going to by our tickets this Friday since October 17th is also my birthday. (10/17/58).
SFC Tommy Daw, US Army, Retired.
Jimmy I am so proud of you and appreciate and have enjoyed all your great music over the past 50+ years. We were class mates at Baton Rouge High. I joined the Navy and you became a great singer. My ship the USS General Randall enjoyed Brooklyn, NY as our home port. We transported troops to their duty stations all over the world. We took Elvis to Bremerhaven, Germany in 1958. I had the opportunity to meet him. He was a great person at that time. I was fortunate to be in New York while you were part of a show either by Alan reed or Dick Clark. I learned you were performing and attended the show. You sang JUST A DREAM. I was so very proud of you and my date fell madly in love with you. God Bless you Jimmy. Regards, Billy Mizell
Jimmie saw you in Easton, shook your hand your were terrific! god bless you!
I have all your music on my IPad and listen to it all the time. my favorite song is “Venus In Blue Jeans”.
I’ve read your comments about your faith and dedication of your life to our Lord and Savior. keep
On singing and giving your testimony .
Your music keeps me going, When Things get tough I just sit down and turn on the music. “keep on going Jimmy,
Go Jimmy go.
Was at your show last night in Easton Pa. talked after the show about dancing with all the girl’s when they played Just A Dream. Go Jimmy Go. Danny
Hi JIMMY ,
I feel as though i have known you all my life. You and I are about the same age. I had many dates listening to your
songs. I love to hear “JUST A DREAM”, “A LETTER TO AN ANGEL” and ” GO JIMMY GO” . I still watch you on You Tube with the old classic rock stars. Many thanks to you and the other stars for all the many years of entertainment.
THANKS VERY VERY MUCH ! WE ALL LOVE YOU ! WISH YOU MANY MORE YEARS !
THANKS AGAIN RANDALL

You gotta love the internet !! They allow us old timers to go back to our teenage years and hear the greatest songs ever recorded. And then we get to find details about our favorite artists by linking to their web site.
Jimmy Clanton, what a great voice and what great songs! Just a Dream is in my top ten of all songs. Thanks for the memories that this song brings when I hear you singing!
We were at your show in New Bedford, MA at The Zeiterion Theater on March 28, 2015. What a great performance you put on! You are the consummate showman and professional! You’ve still got it JC!!!!!
“I enjoyed your show in New Bedford Mass last Saturday night. You really have a great stage presence and you still sound like teen idol of your teenage years. Thanks for a great and entertaining show!
Hi Jimmy ! Finally got to see you at the great Doo Wop Concert in Denver a few years ago. Afterward, you came out to the theater lobby and I was fortunate to meet you and you put your arm around me so my wonderful neighbor could take a picture of us together. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to retrieve it the next day, but thanks to you I will always have this special memory. My 50-year high school reunion is this summer and I’ve been a fan of yours since I first heard “Just A Dream” when I was still in grade school. God Bless and, yes, keep on singing, as Gerard says above.
Hi–Jimmy been a long time since you were a D J at WHEX radio station in Columbia, Pa. I used to call all most everyday. Had you play a song for my hubby ( Ralph ) and our youngest daughter ( Maryann ) from Audrey. Won a lot of Roses from you and you question of the day contest. .Brought you cookies to the station.. Also came to see you when the station was In Park City Mall. Good times. Won’t forget them

Hi Jimmy, loved your concert in Ft.Pierce! Please come back to Florida often. Hope you in Ft. Pierce often! Fran
Jimmy Clanton, I just love your music! Thank you for bringing the good times back!! I would love for you to sing for us here in the Sarasota Florida area!
Take care and keep singing to us with that beautiful voice!!
Been a fan since I was a kid – I’m now 65-years old. God Bless You as you entertain all of us and
as you SERVE THE LORD.
Your Fan and Friend,
Jimmy, I heard you for the first time on a transistor radio from one of the many stores on 42nd St. New York City.in 1959. I was 12 & I used the money from a college prep course. I just could not stop signing your songs. God gave you a gift and your still sharing it with us. Oh what a night that must have been for you when you shared the stage with Jackie Wilson, Deon Dimucci and his belmonts as well as the Skyliners.!.I used to think that a bottle of brandy & a song were the only ones who ever cared. Now I know that Jesus saves. No human power could help me and now I’ve been sober 28 years. Now I pray for my son. He has inherited my love for music as well as my love for other things. Somehow I think you hear me, brother. I now live in a beautiful upscale retirement community in Laguna Woods, California. We have a beautiful theatre you would love and we would love you.
Love your songs your voice is one of a kind.
Thank you for all your kind comments. If it were not for you all, I would not have a career. Thank you for being fans and for also signing my Guestbook. I do read all your comments.
never had the opportunity to see you in person, but have seen you PBS and other shows and you are awesome. I am a 70 year old Vet and still love your music as I did back in the day as a teenager.
Best wishes for forever……ken
Hi Jimmy, I saw you in person a cruise ship. You were so wonderful. I have been a fan ever since.
I pray that you stay well. Love, Donna
Hi Jimmy. We were at your wonderful show on Valentine’s day 2015 in ft Pierce, fl. Last time I saw you was with my boyfriend in hialeah, fl around 1963. We have been married for 46 years. As you came down the stairs from the stage singing TOM reached for your hand and gave it to me, I kissed you! My teenage dream came true. My hubby and family were very happy for me. I was a teenager again. I’m the one who followed you to the front and showed you my scrap book with your childhood pictures. Loved the whole night. God bless you! Alice wuenstel
I saw you you come through the Airport in Jacksonville,fl as I was Playing on the stage you left your card with me enjoyed your music on your web site .
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed your wonderful performance on Valentine’s Day in Fort Pierce, FL. and we both look forward to your return. Wishing you good health, good times and good cheer!
John and Ilene
Thank you for the great show in Ft.Pierce! I have always been a great fan. I met you for the first time and you were so charming! You need to come back to Ft. Pierce often! Thanks Jimmy for all the great music! Fran
I just have to commend you on a lifetime if singing the songs that make us happy. I hope you enjoy all of us who listen to your carefree endearing songs and your sweet voice. Call it nostalgia, but your music was the happiness behind our yourhful innocence. When we encounter “Venus in Blue Jeans” or “Just a Dream” on the car radio or a Trader Joe’s, it is you who make us smile inside. That’s all of us Baby Boomers secret. That your music connects is with a time and place long gone to us, but still as real as if it was yesterday. “Go, Jimmy, Go.” Continue your traveling the country. You have a lot of past for us to each remember.
My husband and I went to the Bloomsburg Fair to see you. You were awesome.Your voice will be remembered and most of all,your smile. I love when you interact with the audience,they too,loved you for doing that. You are a true entertainer and we will always remember that night hearing your song of the past. They all mean a lot to the both of us. We will always be a fan of your’s.
I have been a fan ever since I heard your first song in the 50’s I hope to see you sing one day in person I live Next door to Disney. Love Marion
“Jimmy my pal thank you for being part of one of the best nights we’ve ever had and thank you for the class and style you brought to the evening – You are a legend, keep on rocking Love & kisses, your pal the Geator”
Wow !! A Blast From The Past !! Jimmy, You Were Awesome at the Kimmel Center on Saturday Night !! Love All Your Music….Love You Too !! Thanks For The Photo !! Hope To See You Again, Real Soon !!
Enjoyed the show last night in Charlotte, NC. My hobby is research on the Clanton family.
I have been a fan of yours since you started. Love your music. Jimmy maybe someday I will have the honor of seeing you in person and meeting you. Keep on singing. You are a true legend.
Went to a re-union show a few years back and for some reason you had to cancel. Really wanted to meet you. I know we are related somehow. Grew up with your music and still enjoy it very much. I play guitar and sing just for family and friends but I did tour with two other guys while in Viet Nam for a couple months and loved it. Keep up the fine work!
I can’t believe I will be seeing you at the Ft.Pierce concert!!! I have waited so long to see you in concert. I just hope I can hold back the tears!! Thank you for all your great music. Fran
Another cold and cloudy day in Texas. The bright side is that I am watching the Raceland video for the third time. Looking forward to the day I’ll see you again in person. Loved the performance and love your music. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I am not retiring!!! I will continue to perform as God leads and directs my life; as long as HE keeps me in good health and continues
to allow me to have a voice that is better than it’s ever been in my life!
you have been an inspiration to many of us that love sweet loving love songs. you have been apart of our lives for so many years. I was very sad to hear you were giving up your tours, but I know how I felt when I became retirement age you have gift that a lot of us would have died for to have to be gifted with your talent. And what you have done for us though the years of our youth you are truely a gift from God. we will always love you and your music God bless you and may you live a longer life and have your voice never change. you almost make me cry knowing we are going to loose you. May peace be with you always.proud to be your friend you have done so much for my life and my feelings I am proud I grew up with you in it.From the bottom of my heart Thank you

It has been a blessing in my life to meet my favorite teenage singer. Most of all is the total blessing of becoming your friend now and knowing how far God has brought you. You are a humble, loving man who is touching many lives for our Lord. Loved you as a teen and love you now. You are in my deepest prayers daily. Praying for health and traveling mercies as you entertain your fans and tell them how awesome Jesus is. GOD BLESS YOU. LOVE ALWAYS, YOUR SISTER IN CHRIST LYNN.
Just a thank you for your contribution to the great rock n roll music scene, over the years. Here in Australia we missed out on a whole bunch of overseas stars, but was always nice to hear their records. Jimmy Clanton always kind of stood out as one of the nice guys, with a damn good haircut.
I do a rock n roll programme here in Australia on Triple U FM 104.5, and I would love to have some promos from you if that’s possible, sent via MP3 if that’s ok.
I am Rob Bell and the programme is Rokkitt Radio on Mondays from 5 oclock on Triple U FM, also if you would me like to plug any of your CD’s I am happy to oblige “on air”.
Anyway, take care, and have a merry Christmas for 2014.
Thanks for the great tunes and memories of those times when we would cruise around listening to the radio. I am glad you are still performing and hope you come to the Thrasher/Horne Performance Center in Orange Park, Florida in 2015. Would that be cool or what.
Hi to one of the first swamp poppers. I’ve just been looking at newspaper ads from Baton Rouge back when you were playing with Dick Holler at the Carousel Club. I’m writing a book about Slim Harpo, and I wonder whether you’d have a few memories of Baton Rouge clubs and the local blues scene you could email me about direct ?
Been a huge fan since I am 15. Saw u at the bloom fair!
I loved your music when I was a teenager and still do. I have about a few of your original 45 records. I saw your Raceland concert and it was great like I knew it would be. Keep on singing and consider coming back to south Louisiana. Love ya…
i was in high school when “Just a Dream” came out. I still have the “45” record! Love your DVD from Racetrack–It’s almost like seeing you in person. Keep on singing, Jimmy–maybe someday I’ll be lucky enough to see you in person.
Greetings young Jimmy, keep up the great work, and before the great man calls you try and come and do a tour of England with Troy Shondell, take care buddy.
Just heard “Just A Dream” on satellite radio. Brought back good ole memories of the Lighthouse on False River. I will alwaysl love that music. Hope all is well for you!! Come to Baton Rouge soon!
Gloria Bello (Your friend in 1958-1959)
Just found you again and your great music. And, I just watched you sing Venus In Blue Jeans on you tube. That was one of my favorite songs. You were one of the best and it brings back so many memories when I was growing up in Georgia.
You can catch me on you tube under my name with two oldie songs I’m sure you remember…My Special Angel remake, and remake of He’s Got You.
Best to you, Jimmy!!
I just watched the Raceland DVD again this afternoon ! I NEVER get tired of watching and listening to Jimmy !
I have listened to Raceland and I loved it. I felt like I was back in my teenage years. More than that Jimmy it wasn’t like going to a concert where you only sing a few songs. This was like being invited to your home for and informal meet and greet so everyone got to know each other and became friends. I wish I could have gone. You Tammy Lynn and Terri sang from your hearts and your grandaughter was just wonderful and a breath of spring. I play it all the time, sometimes I am not watching it but just listening to it wishing that I was there. It puts me back in time and sometimes that is a good thing I could go on and on about Raceland but it is the best of the best and I loved it. God Bless you Jimmy and I hope for many more performances just like this one Alice Basler
i was not able to attend The Raceland show. But… I bought 2 Raceland DVD s !! I bought 2 in case I wore the first one out. Well, I’ve watched it so many times I’ve lost count !! Jimmy is the best ever ! There are no words to describe this show! AWESOME doesn’t even begin to describe it !! This DVD is a MUST HAVE for All Jimmy Clanton fans !!
The Raceland DVD is the next best thing to being there. We can relive that Magical Night over and over, while wishing it had never ended. Took me 50+ years to get there, the “Wait” was beyond my expectation, YOU, Sir, DID NOT DISAPPOINT! In one EXTRAORDINARY NIGHT you made ALL my dreams come true!!! The DVD is the GREATEST reminder we could have asked for…..Thank you, JC, for the MEMORIES, in a DVD!!!! We love you!!!!
The show in Raceland was just a dream come true. I loved every minute of it. Now with the wonderful DVD I can relive it over and over again. The DVD is just wonderful.
Rec’d the RACELAND DVD and it is terrific. NOT as good as in person, of course, but since we were there I am qualified to say, “Jimmy, you are a fantastic performer. Sammye is already preparing to find another of your concerts to attend.
Sorry that was about May of 1960.
You were always my favorite entertainer and I got to meet you and get your autograph in Galveston, Texas in about May of 1961. You had come to appear at Pleasure Pier I believe. Anyway my friends and I met you following the Splash Day parade. Still have the autograph. Thanks for all the happy memories and the beautiful music.
Just got my tickets for your January 2 show in Minnesota. I hope the weather is better than the last time you were here. I’ll have to buy an Ol Rock and Roller shirt and hope you sign it.
Loved your music as a teenager, remember “Just A Dream”, it’s in my soul. Thank you! And I’m so glad you are still performing. You look and sound terrific!
still enjoying your awesom music. Keep it going. Go Jimmy Go!
I never thought I’d meet you until I went to the Ultimate Doo Wop show in Sarasota on 10/24/14. Thank you for making me feel like a teenager again. When you sang Venus in Blue Jeans & asked me to stand I was so excited. You are so talented and gave a wonderful performance. Thank you again.
see you in fort pierce
still a fan still love the songs
I saw you in Denver 2 years ago. Thank you for a great performance. Venus in Blue Jeans is my favorite song of yours. Hope you are married to your “venus”. / Lee.
Just bought your CD. I cannot buy your DVD because I do not have a DVD player. I love all your songs. You are truly blessed with so much talent.
I just love your music. You are truly blessed with so much talent.
Hi, Jimmy, I’ve loved u and your music since the ‘American Bandstand’ days! What a wonderful, glorious time! Best ever!!
a.k.a Dick Valentine. http://www.wolfeenterprises.org Love your singing, Jimmy, and glad to have you as a Facebook Friend! Venus In Blue Jeans is one of my all time favorites!
Truly enjoyed your show at Bloomsburg Fair…..Just a dream was one of my favorites during my teens…Keep up the good shows!!!!!!
Jimmy………..I have loved you since I was a teenager! I hoped to one day see one of your shows……but due to health and other circumstances…….it has remained to be……….just a dream……….I listen to your songs often…….I have so many fond memories……You have been a blessing to all your fans! Your long time fan….thank you for the music<3
Loved you then, Love you still.
Jimmy you are the beat!! Love your music. Thank you for all you do!!
I was a lonely teenager in a strange city, going to college when Just a Dream came on the radio. I would race home from college to turn the radio, on, changing the stations until I could hear it play. Little did I know that someday I would meet you in person. From that winter day, at Memorial Hall in Plymouth I have called you friend for the genuine person that you are. Many times I have read your nuggets and they have grabbed me in the heart. I have cried many tears because sometimes they just seem to be telling me something that I needed to hear at the time. God Bless you Jimmy and keep on singing your wonderful songs for us
“Just a dream”—- so long ago— so many great memories!!!! THANKS!!!!!!
Jimmy the last time we saw you was at the IP in Biloxi.
We really enjoyed the show. we are looking forward to seeing you the next time you come to the IP.
By the way we grew up on the North side of the tracks.
Hail Istrouma! 1959 & 1957

I would like to thank you for the wonderful performance at the Bloomsburg Fair on Saturday evening. My mother has been a fan of yours since you started performing so you can imagine how thrilled she was to finally see you perform in person. The highlight of her night was getting your autograph and picture taken with you. Thank you so much for being so gracious and welcoming to your fans. Marian and Rhonda
Hi Jimmy. 🙂 You are the greatest!!!! Hugs and love!!! 😀 <3
Thanks for all your great music down through the years. “Just A Dream” was just the first of your records that have been just plain fabulous. Looking forward to lots more “golden” sounds from you. Hope to see you in person sometime.
All the best,
Jack Miller – Baltimore, Md.
Listening to you on the Solid Gold Oldies makes me feel young again. I have seizures so don’t go to concerts. DVD’s will have to do. Keep up the good work & God Bless.
Jimmy, I can relate to Candy Freeman ‘s story…. I was 11 and went to a Dick Clark Caravan of Stars show in Kansas City. Someone sat me on stage and you came over and sang Just A Dream to me. I’ll never forget looking in your eyes and you had a little tear.That was a great night I will never forget, I loved you then and I love you now. I hope you keep on singing for a long time, your voice has got even better thru the years.Oh,and that was 55 years ago.
Enjoyed your site, glad to reconnect after all lost after Katrina! You have helped make life wonderful again. Keep singing, we all,love your talents and fan comments ! sho buz
Jimmy I just want to thank you for all the wonderful memories you have given me through out the past years with all the great songs you have recorded. You were blessed with an outstanding voice that brought us all those wonderful songs that we will remember for the rest of our lives, as I have said many times, my favorite song has and will always be “Just A Dream”. I can’t tell you enough times how I love that song. Well Jimmy may god bless you and keep you safe and healthy so you can continue to sing for us. Love you lots.
What a miracle this was! I found out today that my albums of the 50’s 60’s were “gone” (to simplify the story) and I cried
way too much. Through a little research I found your Facebook ministry site, and this website. I have purchased a ticket
for your show on October 24 in Sarasota, and hope to meet you then. I am in Georgia, but will somehow find a way to
get to Sarasota, Fl.
Thanks for the miracle you sent to me today; without even knowing you had. -Turned a “hopeless feeling day” into one
with a shining light. Thank you – Judy
When I was 9 years old, I went to a dance at the Lions Club in Shreveport with my sisters. We went to see you and The Champs. I was right in front of the stage and you had me come up on stage and you had someone get a stool for me and you sang “Just a Dream” to me. I still haven’t forgotten that night. It was so cool. That was 55 years ago!!!

God bless you as He has blessed us with hearing your incrediable voice.
Woops that is a nostalgia attack although if I could somehow attach that would be OK too. LOL
God Bless. Terry
You knew me as Terry Pines with a group called the Pixies Last time I saw you was in Hershey PA before I moved to CA. Lived there 30 years. Are you still in Lancaster, PA? My family lives in PA and I have spent the last 6 years in GA. Hope you and Roxie are doing well and enjoying life. I watched a PBS fundraiser using the music of the 50’s and early 60’s. Am having a nostalgia attach. Wish you well. Terry
I miss seeing you at CLUMC. We’re having a fun 60’s party/family night on Oct. 3. in Wesley Center to help celebrate out 50th anniversary. Would love for you to come enjoy it with us.
love your music–have forever–thanks for all the music!!
Well, finally..it’s not going to be JUST A DREAM, when i get to see ya in concert in Sarasota Florida. Cannot wait!
Love you music since the early sixties. Saw you in Raceland, LA and just listened to “a taste of” your new CD. Loved Raceland and love the CD. Keep on singing, you are the greatest.
We live in a great land. Jimmy Clanton is a National treasure as an ARTIST and a TRUE AMERICAN!
Continue to ROCK our world!

I sure do enjoy your music on Sirius XM radio. I learned the lyrics to “Go Jimmy Go” when I just a toddler (my teenage sister played your records over and over as she babysat me). Would love to see your performance if you visit Colorado. Thanks for the music and memories.
SO PROUD TO CALL YOU MY FRIEND JIMMY!!!!!! I can’t wait for you to hear “I GAVE YOU MY HEART!” Your writing talent is awesome!!! What a beautiful song you wrote for me………..I am truly honored!!!!!! In my book you most definitely ROCK!!!!!!

Great web site, Jimmy !! Love the music. One of these days I might even hear it in person. Meanwhile, it will be on here and on fb. Talk to you soon over on fb… Love you….GG !
I saw jimmy in person in Hauppauge , long island n.y this april he”s wonderful , sings just as great as ever!! <3
Great looking page Jimmy……You’re sounding better than ever………Keep up the awesome music.
I have loved your music for all of these years. I was thrilled when “Go Johnnie Go” came out and it was great. I watched it just recently. You can come to Lake of the Ozarks, Mo. I would love that. My favorite is probably “Just a Dream”, but I love them all.
I’ve been a fan of yours since the mid 50’s, I even copied your hair style, one part on each side of head and comb hair to the middle with duck tails in the back….am I correct? Anyway God Bless you, my friend. (We’re friends on FaceBook!
It would have been about 1958, and I sat right beside you in a class at LSU. You told me your band was playing across the river, and to bring a date and that you would sing a song for us. You sang “Just A Dream” for us, and we were very impressed. Little did I know that you would become so famous!
always loved your music. first saw you back in the early 60s !! ouch!haha! and still seeing you when I can. love the new website! you are a true gentlemen and great with you fans!!
Jimmy, I love your new website. It’s awesome!! Hugs to an amazing entertainer!! Kindly, Delores
I love your music! Especially Venus in Blue Jeans. I think it’s one of the best produced records of the 60’s. The melody and the vocal are exemplary. The modulation makes it the perfect song. The trumpets are fantastic! You can hear everything on that song. Feel free to write me, I would love to discuss your music with you. Sincerely, Carl Couch
Jimmy’s greatest talent is on the inside. He is one of the warmest, kindness, caring people I have ever met and I am so happy I have seen this side of him so many times. You can not help but love Jimmy. He has brought so much happiness to all of our lives. Growing up in the 50s and 60s all we had was our music and Jimmy sure kept belting out the best music I ever heard. I still cry every time I hear “A Part of Me” and no one does it like Jimmy. Thank you for being a part of all of our lives. We love you Jimmy.
Come back to the bayou!!
I have been a fan of yours for many years!!!! It seems like a dream that we can talk with you!!
Your best fan, Judy
What was “Just a Dream” became a reality. You have followed your dream and with your God given talent, you have shinned. God bless you Jimmy
Evening Mr Clanton,
I have been a fan since the good old 50& 60’s … I have listened to your music all of my 67 years an still do to this day.
THANK YOU …
Your fan in Maryland
Thank you very much for the inspirational songs about Jesus you sang today at White Dove Fellowship. It’s great to see some of the 50’s and 60’s great singers get saved and singing for the Lord. I’ve also talked to Dion Dimucci, once. I’m the one that took all the pictures. The one that’s “temporarily” on oxygen> I was healed from terminal cancer and I’ll be healed from this, too. I hope you come back and sing. again. Thank you again and God Bless you!!
Jimmy I am honored to know such a beautiful person as you, with a heart full of love for the Lord and for your fans, thanks for the wonderful music I have heard from my youth and into my senior years. I love it and can sing along with it too. Your work has been oh so awesome just like you are. I love you, God bless you and stay sweet my beautiful friend.
Thankls for the trip back to my youth. Remember the songs the first time around.
