Raw Deals Finally Turn Sweet For James Marvell


The Orlando Florida based Reality TV Show,

Raw Deal has sweetened the pot for recording artist James Marvell.

After years of musical struggles his 2012 story won! Marvell recorded a million selling classic with the legendary pop group Mercy in the ‘60s. The band made music history topping the Billboard and Cashbox charts with Elvis, Frank Sinatra and the Beatles. His face has appeared on the covers of CDs and albums in stores across the nation and overseas for over 40 years including releases on Warner Brothers but Marvell has not received one penny in royalties!

Even before Mercy his first Raw Deal in music came early, when he formed his 1965 garage band called The Skopes. He recorded an original composition co-written with his manager John Centinaro titled “She’s Got Bad Breath” for the USA label in Chicago. The song was banned by a famous mouthwash company putting a quick halt to a great opportunity. In the early ‘70s, James Marvell and music friend Buddy Good left Rock and Roll. They kept their waist long hair and called themselves The Country Cavaleers. They headed for Nashville to sing the songs they loved, country! The Cavaleers, who recorded for several labels including MGM, may have looked like a couple of hippies in cowboy hats to 1970 Nashville but their message was clear to all, “don’t do drugs!” After years of being blocked and swept under the rug by the Nashville music clique of that day, Marvell & Good got fed up with the politics which ended the Cavaleers’ promising career in 1976.

  1. Judy, you are always friendly and have something possitive to add. People like you are rare in the music industry where many are after their own success. Speaking of success, I do wish you continued success in your music. From what I can see you have had a great deal of it in your own right and also with the unbeatable promoter/songwriter Rhonnie Scheuerman.

    I’d like to close by saying I wish all a very Merry Christmas and thank Frans here at Wildhorse for the opportunity to read the great articles about today’s Independent Superstars!

    • Thanks for your kind words, James. It blesses my heart to congratulate and cheer my dear friends on when they
      have successes. I appreciate all the good Lord has done with my career (with the help of great promoters like Rhonnie) and thank Him every day. I never expected to get as far as I have, and if I never get another accolade,
      I’ll still consider myself very fortunate. Just finished a huge project and now ready to start celebrating this most
      wonderful time of the year. Wishing a blessed Christmas and the best New Year possible (in spite of the fact we
      have leadership with no Christian values) to all who read this. Blessings and hugs, Judy

  2. This couldn’t have happened to a nicer, more deserving, singer/songwriter. I’m sooo proud of James and wish him
    continued success not only in his music endeavors, but in all aspects of his life….WAAAAYYY TOOOO GOOO, James!! Cheers, Judy
