Sharon "Shuggy" West

I'm beggin you please take me back...I don't want to be another face in the crowd.

Listen to “A Face In The Crowd,” and “They Call Me A Fool,” two new bluesy songs of love and romance from the musical vault of Damon The Gypsy. These poetic musical compositions will draw you into their romantic tales of desire and turmoil. New Xenos Artist Sharon “Shuggy” West brings these songs to light with her country girl feel.

Xenos record label is now releasing singles written by prolific songwriter and psychedelic music icon, Damon The Gypsy/David Del Conte. While looking for material for new Xenos Artist, Sharon “Shuggy” West, Damon reached into his music vault and mined a few gems from the past. Damon and Sharon have teamed their talents on this new musical joint venture.

His song "A Face in the Crowd" has a very curious pedigree. This brilliant and unique recording was originally arranged and produced in the early 1960s by Chester Pipkin, then subsequently published by Brian Stone's Five West Music.

“A Face In The Crowd,” weaves a story of the pain and heart ache of love gone wrong. In the chorus comes the heart wrenching words, “Now that it’s over... I’m beggin you please...take me back...I don’t want to be another face in the crowd.”

Lyrics of lost love, soulful musical interludes with bluesy guitar solos, mixed with Sharon’s sultry voice give these songs a familiar country feel similar to that of Patsy Kline, whose voice captured all of America. Sharon’s version of “They Call Me A Fool” has a new energy to it. Is the new version better than the original? You be the judge.

“They Call Me a Fool” tells of .....Friends criticizing this incurable dreamer about her choice of a romantic interest. “ They call me a fool...for falling in love” She replies to their ignorance with details of their intimate relationship. “A fool I’d rather be...sweetness of your love....tenderness of your touch.” This poetic song
reveals how others can’t understand our feelings of love.
