Biography

Active: 1950s-1980s
Country Of origin: United States of America

A traditional gospel-tinged Southern soul singer from Birmingham, AL C.L. Blast has never been able to generate much interest outside the South, and enjoyed only limited recognition within that region. He grew up doing gospel before switching to soul and singing with several local and regional groups. He did the song "I Take the Case" and then the LP I Wanna Get Down for Cotillion/Atlantic in 1980, then worked with vocalist/producer Frederick Knight on Park Place in 1984. The single "50/50 Love" was competently produced and performed, but didn't attract much interest. The LP C.L. Blast suffered the same fate. ~ Ron Wynn~ Rovi
