Jewel Akens

Jewel Akens was already something of a seasoned performer when he came to the Colgems label. The Texas native already had a chartbusting hit, as "The Birds and the Bees" hit No. 3 in January 1965. Later that year, he had a smaller hit with "Georgie Porgie," and still later "It's the Only Way to Fly."

His sides for Colgems were fun, although they did not chart. Here is one, "You Better Move On," which is one of his best songs period.
