SINCE 2001
                  By Tommy Robinson
A WARM WELCOME TO ORIONDISCS
This website is a tribute to the U.S. recording artist Jimmy Ellis, and focuses on his many record releases. With 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; Mr.E; Steven Silver and The Shadowman. Due to 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). The aim of this site is to provide a complete worldwide list of all his releases.


ORION IN CONCERT

I am looking for information concerning Orion's many concert appearances in the USA and several countries in Europe where he performed.
If you can provide any additional info, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, to the list of details in the concert section of this site please get in touch. Dates, venues, photographs would all be of great help. Details of songs performed at any of the listed shows would be especially welcome. Newspaper adverts and reports of his numerous appearances also very much appreciated.
Hopefully in time the details given can be guaranteed  to be100% correct but a great deal more info is required before reaching that stage. If you can help with any small detail please contact me at:

oriondiscsuk@yahoo.com
