Tic & Toc / Timmie Rodgers
Jibba Jab / Teedle Dee Teedle Dum

Demented, rock & roll maniacs Tic & Toc and Timmie Rodgers split their brains open and pour out the weird insides all over you with the anthemic masterpiece that is ‘Jibba Jab’ and the accelerating cacophony of scat jazz that is ‘Teedle Dee Teedle Dum’, both tracks feature Big Nick ‘Tok’ Nicholas on vo...view item »

Young Jessie
Pretty Soon / Well Baby

Both songs by Young Jessie on this 45 were originally recorded in the mid-1950s for the Modern label, which was owned by the Bihari Brothers. Pretty Soon was released in the ‘60s on a cheap compilation album and Well Baby appeared in more recent years on a CD compilation. It is to the bafflement of anyone...view item »

Roy Brown
Butcher Pete

7” Vinyl with widened centre on Jukebox Jam Series reissue label, originally released in on 78 in 1950. ‘Butcher Pete’ is Roy Brown’s third appearance on Jukebox. This truly is a record that shows how the times have changed (well…), a grisly double entendre in two parts, over two sides. Offset by t...view item »

Young Jessie
You Were Meant For Me / Mary Lou

One of the unsung heroes of the soul/r'n'b/rock'n'roll eras of the '50s and early '60s, Obie "Young" Jessie started his career in LA vocal group The Flairs alongside Richard Berry (who wrote 'Louie Louie', later popularised by The Kingsmen) and is also notable for having recorded demos for a certain Elvis Presley, but his solo career saw him fli...view item »

The Contours
Whole Lotta Woman / Regional Version

The old days of soul are immortalised with the Contours, who perfected and smoothed out the genres hallmarks back when they were in their '60s swing. Their choice hit, "Whole Lotta Woman", booms with an eyebrow-raising bassline and a belted vocal performance. On the b-side the tune gets nicely updated, in case you want your love...view item »

Roy Brown
I'm A Rockin' Man / Everything's Alright

Not to be confused with of-his-time blue comedian Roy "Chubby" Brown, here's a bit of classic jump blues/r'n'b business from Roy Brown, a sort of proto-rock'n'roll number with a brazen piano and drum groove and some loose jazzy trumpet soloing. 'Everything's Alright' on the other side has some mean bluesy electric guitar twanging alongside the p...view item »

Saunders King
Swingin' / Lazy Woman Blues

The 40s were a crazy time for Saunders King, what with getting shot by his landlord and the suicide of his wife, as well as getting busted for possessing heroin. From this man besieged on all sides by life comes a fantastic instrumental jazz record. On 45rpm, swinging its way from Norman Records to you....view item »

Joe Liggins / Ellis 'Slow' Walsh
Going Back to New Orleans / New Orleans Is My Home

"Going Back to New Orleans" is Joe Liggins’ tribute to a city that has given so much to so many musicians. The song is a reworking of the dixieland tune "New Orleans is my Home" by Ellis ‘Slow’ Walsh. Going Back To New Orleans/New Orleans is my Home is available on 7&...view item »

Little Walter
Mean Old Frisco / Come Back Baby

Now here’s a reissue to write home about. First published 50 years ago(!) and written another six years before then, Mean Old Frisco and Come Back Baby have missed out on their true potential - until now. Released in their alternate recorded versions, Little Walter’s tracks are now finally as dance ...view item »

Hubert Robinson
High Class Woman

Jukebox Jam hit us with another selection of golden oldies this week. I’ve got a couple of stompin’ blues cuts recorded for Houston label Macy’s from local lad Hubert Robinson. This guy got started ...view item »

Jukebox Mambo

Jazzman’s Jukebox Jam series has a treat for you fans of vintage recordings this week in the shape of this 10” (with a little sticker like an old-style 78) with a lo...view item »

Barrett Strong
Misery / Let's Rock

My brother once had a girlfriend whose name was pronounced ‘misery’ and therefore pretty perfect match for his then mind frame. This is a nice old school R&B from the man who had a hit with ‘Money’ and in the process made quite a lot of the stuff for his then-la...view item »

Jewel King

Oh wow, here’s a single from Jazzman subsidiary Jukebox Jam, bringing back two tracks of swingin’ boogie from Jewel King, originally released on 78 way back in I-don’t-know-when-because-the-press-release-won’t-tell-me. This kind of thing really isn’t my area ...view item »

Dave Bartholomew
Carnival Day / Cat Music

It's mambo time!!!  Living legend Dave Bartholomew has forgotten more than most people know about music. He's a Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame member and has penned over forty hits for Imperial Records, including two songs that reached number one on the BillBoard R&B chart. This 7&r...view item »

Camille Howard
Please Don't Stay Away Too Long

...or if you want to be modern about it "Plees Dnt Stay AwA 2 Lng"... The smokey voice of Camille Howard sounds as great today as it did all those years ago. She was also an excellent ivory tinkler...view item »

Jimmy Nolen
The Way You Do

Jimmy "Chank" Nolen was one of the members of James Browns backing band. He joined J.Bs band in around '65. He invented a style of guitar playing that was to be known as "chicken scratch". This style made him a star in his own right and many artists clamored to work with him. This vintage style 7" is a classic blues single that has a pretty swee...view item »

Etta James
Nobody Loves You Like Me / Tough Lover

Etta James is a fantastic vocalist. Her voice is strong and distinctive. I really liked this long lost curio. The fact that her songs have been used on many an advert is of the utmost indifference to me. Sure I hate those twats on that Coca-cola advert leching at some gormless male model in an unconvincing office enviroment, but you cant deny th...view item »

Chris Powell
I Come From Jamaica / Country Girl Blues

Jukebox 45 obscurity time with this charming Caribbean jazz, rhythm and blues track from this prolific 40's/50's Philly musician. Although in many ways this sounds pretty straight forward listening now I can imagine at the time the unusual percussion and strange off-kilter latin rhythms would have been fairly experimental at the time although I'...view item »
