Although sadly destined to remain a "No-Hit-Wonder", R&B/Swamp-Pop singer Roland Stone is acknowledged as one of the finest white voices to emerge from New Orleans (Aaron Neville once described him as "the singingest white guy I've ever heard.") Stone had one huge regional hit, 'Just A Moment', which sold 100,000+ copies in New Orleans and Louisiana, despite a strong rival version by Ike Clanton. 'Preacher's Daughter', 'Something Special' and 'Everybody's Lonesome For Somebody Else' were also significant regional successes, as was Benny Spellman's 'Roll On', on which Roland shared the lead vocals.
