Here is a 45 rpm record released in 1963 on Mala Label by Jimmy Isle. 

This record is an advance copy created for radio station air play. This record is in very good condition except the label has a radio station name stamped on the A side and on B side a date stamp. The record itself is excellent.

Jimmy Isle and his brother Ronnie grew up in Nashville and together wrote many songs, Jimmy has 39 entries on BMI Database and his brother has 69.  As a singer, Jimmy first appeared on the scene in 1957, with "Stay By My Side"/ "Baby-O" on the Chicago-based Bally label. The next year he recorded what is probably his best rocker, "Goin' Wild" for Roulette label.

At some point in 1958, Jimmy recorded "Diamond Ring" and "I've Been Waitin'" at a demo studio, Fidelity Recording, in Nashville. Walker leased these masters to Sun Records in October 1958, and Sun picked up Isle's contract. After being signed to Sun, Jimmy was brought to Memphis to record one session (produced by Jack Clement) from which two singles were drawn. The backing was supplied by Billy Riley (guitar), Pat O'Neill (bass), Tommy Ross (drums), Charlie Rich (piano) and Martin Willis (sax). "Without A Love"/"Time Will Tell" was released in March 1959. In 1963 Isle signed with Mala Records where he stayed one year. Isle then went to Diamond label in 1964.
