All Music Guide - Bob Gottlieb
Here is one of the pioneers of the Memphis R&B movement. This man was a huge influence in Jamaica at the beginning of the ska rhythms; he had a loping and relaxed style that fit right into the propensities of early ska artists. He hasn't been popular in the states since "Just a Little Bit," his early-'60s hit, stormed the R&B charts. At this time he married and devoted himself to his wife and growing family.

It was only her untimely demise from bone cancer and the growing up of his children that allowed him to get back on the road again mostly in Europe and Canada. But here he is back in full voice, with the help of Duke Robillard and his band, to reignite the flames that have lain dormant all these years.

This is an exceptionally fine effort and kudos must go to Stony Plain for taking the time to make this available for our pleasure.
