Mary Ford and Les Paul

Mary Ford and Les Paul

2022-08-0144:19

​​Mary Ford did more for Les Paul’s career than most people know or care to admit. Before she met Les for a radio audition, Mary already had notoriety in the country scene as “Colleen Summers.” When the two musicians became entangled - both professionally and romantically - her plush vocals and quick pickin’ made them one of the most popular acts in America. But Les’ pride and workaholic lifestyle would eventually strip Mary not just of her love of music — but also the proper credit she deserved.    For behind the scenes info and news on this episode, follow: Instagram:@DoubleElvis @Aboutagirlpod @Nikkilynette  Twitter: @DoubleElvisFm @Nikkilynette Pinterest: @doubleelvisfm  Facebook: Double Elvis Productions   About A Girl is a scripted narrative anthology series about women whose stories have long been eclipsed by the legends of their famous partners.

Rita Coolidge soared as a singer and songwriter, working with Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton, Leon Russell, Bobby Womack, and Booker T. Jones. She was denied credit for writing the famous piano coda to “Layla” and her contribution to “Superstar,” a huge hit for The Carpenters, was similarly unsung. That was all before she met country rock troubadour Kris Kristofferson, whose superhuman levels of drinking did not help their marriage as her solo career took off.
