NOTICE - PLEASE READ
Included in this huge update is a general revision of the website with some major tidying up. A large part of the overhaul is the added ability to see each cover/label in close up view allowing them to be viewed in greater detail. Work is still ongoing to install this function on every appropriate page and my apologies if some pages currently look quite untidy. This will only be for a short time. If you would like to see one of the finished pages with this new look visit the SINGLES section and check out the Boblo Records page. Click on a disc cover or label scan to get a much closer look. Several other pages on the site have also been redesigned in this way. I will continue making these changes in small uploads and the next part of this huge upload will include more of these changes.
This website is a tribute to the U.S. recording artist Jimmy Ellis, looks at the various aspects of his career and focuses on his many record releases. Besides many of his releases being made available worldwide and recording for numerous small record labels, Jimmy also recorded under several names, the most famous being masked singer Orion, but recordings were issued under several other identities - Ellis James; Ellis; Steven Silver and The Shadowman. Due to the confusion surrounding his many aliases his releases can be difficult to track down and trying to build a complete collection of his recordings can prove daunting (and expensive).

If you have further details on any releases not included or would like to trade Orion recordings or material please drop me an email. Scans of sleeves and labels would be of real interest as would track listings of further foreign releases. Welcome also would be details of his concert performances in the U.S.A. and Europe. This site is very much "a work in progress" and is being updated all the time. If you can add to the info given please e-mail me.
Thanks.
