  4. Don't Touch EP

    Williams Andre:
    Don't Touch EP (7 single/EP)

     Zephire “Andre” Williams was born in Bessmer, Alabama on November 1, 1936. He lost his mother when he was 6 and learned how to take care of himself at a very early age.

    At 14 he enrolled in the US Navy using his older brother’s birth certificate. A year later he was busted and sent home with a dishonorable discharge. As Garth Cartwright wrote “Andre Williams is neither a great singer nor a great musician in the traditional sense, but he is undeniably a great character, an innovator with a smile on his face and a hard-on in his pants.

    In a career spanning nearly six decades, Williams has worn all kinds of musical hats – songwriter, singer, producer, arranger, talent scout.” After his brief stint in the Navy, he moved to Detroit where he won a talent contest at the Warfield Theater. Williams said “There was a talent show going on there. I went there and I think I won four shows straight. If you won one week, you could come back next week. If you won first prize, it was $25 a week. I didn’t consider myself a singer. It was the $25! I didn’t know what I was really going to do. I’d just gotten out of the Navy and hadn’t made up my mind what I was going to do.” He caught the eye of Fortune Records, who signed him in 1955.

    Fortune Records was a small family operated, independent label owned by Jack and Devora Brown. Fortune specialized in R&B, blues, soul and doo-wop music, but they also released pop, big band, hillbilly, gospel, rock and roll, and polka. Other artists on Fortune were John Lee Hooker, Doctor Ross, Nolan Strong & The Diablos and Nathaniel Mayer 

    Fortune’s studio was very primitive and even by the standards of the mid-1950s, but this only encouraged Williams to think in a more creative way. Williams recalls “We’d go out back of Fortune, smoke some reefer, drink a bottle of wine, and come up with a song. It took a genius to mix what we cut and Mrs. Brown, she did it!”

    Andre recorded for the label a string of singles both solo and with a vocal group called the 5 Dollars- also billed as ‘The Don Juans’ on some of his singles. His hit Bacon Fat was a solo effort. The song reached # 9 on the R&B chart in 1957. Other personal fave songs are Jail Bait and Pass The Biscuits, Please but to be honest everything Andre recorded for Fortune. This material is largely available, so we decided to focus on four lesser-known songs here. The Latin-flavored Goin Down To Tia Juana (Fortune 824) was released in 1955. The following year he recorded Just Want A Little Lovin’ (Fortune 827) and Don’t Touch (Fortune 839) in 1957. The rockin’ Hey Country Girl ( Fortune 842) was released in 1958. Andre said “I knew I wasn’t a singer but I knew I could put words together It was just coming up with the stories and putting the stories to some music...You’re either a singer or a performer. I’m a performer.“

    Williams recorded for Fortune until 1961, before becoming more and more involved with production and started to work with Motown. He worked with a young Stevie Wonder, Ike & Tina Turner and dozens of legendary artists. He kept on recording very cool records himself in the 60’s and the 70’s that are regarded as early rap. Sadly by the end of the 1970s, his alcohol and drug addiction turned him into a homeless beggar. In the 1980s, he kicked his addictions began to tour and on the alternative rock circuit. Idolized by bands as The Cramps, Andre Williams was taken on tour by The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and started recording with Spencer, The Dirtbombs, and other alt-rock bands, enjoying a new career.

  5. Cuttin` With EP

    Tex Joe:
    Cuttin` With EP (7 single/EP)

    Joe Tex from was born Joseph Arrington Jr. in Rogers, Texas on August 8th, 1935 but he grew up in Baytown. While he was still a little schoolboy, he worked as a paperboy, a shoeshine and he would always sing and dance for the customers. He also sang in the school choir and the church choir. In high school, he played tenor saxophone and started to sing at talent contests.

    In his junior year of high school, Tex won a talent show in Houston $300 a trip to New York and a week’s stay at the Hotel Teresa in Harlem. He performed at the Apollo Theater (in the amateur section) and he won the Amateur Night competition four times. Talent scout Arthur Prysock introduced Tex to Henry Glover, an A&R man at King Records, who offered him a contract with King. Glover had recently discovered and signed another southern singer very similar to Joe, named James Brown. Joe still had to graduate from high school, so he had to wait for a whole year, not to disappoint his mother. So shortly after graduation day, he recorded his debut single for King Records Come In This House / Davy, You Upset My Home (King 4840) released in October 1955. Tex who wrote both songs and discovered a certain talent for songwriting.

    His famous rivalry with James Brown started around that time. According to many, Brown simply stole from Joe Tex a lot of his dance moves and the microphone stand tricks that made him famous, not to mention the “rapping” over the music that he got from Tex too.

    After recording three more singles for King that sold very little and made no impact in the charts, Joe signed with Ace Records. His first single on the label Cut It Out / Just For You And Me was released in January 1958 as ‘JOE TEX The Rock an Roll Cowboy’. Later that year he cut You Little Baby Face Thing (Ace 550) and before that he recorded Open The Door (Ace 547) with young New Orleans piano genius LITTLE BOOKER (a.k.a. James Booker). Joe Tex is the uncredited vocalist on this record. I reckon both songs have a strong New Orleans flavor and were recorded shortly after Little Richard “disappeared” from secular music to focus on Bible studies -probably trying to do just as good as Richard.

    Unfortunately, none of these great records sold anything or made it to the charts. In spite of having thirty great singles under his belt and many of his songs becoming big hits for other artists, Joe Tex sadly had to wait until 1964 to have his first hit. After that success didn’t stop. he had hit after hit, but that’s a different story!

  6. For Gangsters And Lovers

    Watson Johnny Guitar:
    For Gangsters And Lovers (7 single/EP)

    Texas-born John Watson Jr. (Houston, Feb. 3rd, 1935) started to play the piano at the age of 8 and guitar at the age of 11 after his grandfather, a guitar-playing preacher, bought him his first guitar.

    Johnny was a big fan of T-Bone Walker and Clarance ‘Gatemouth’ Brown. At 15 he moved to Los Angeles with his mother where he started his career as a piano player. He toured on the road with sax-ace Chuck Higgins and piano man Amos Milburn. Johnny made his first records as ‘Young Johnny Watson’ for Federal in 1952.

    After releasing a few singles as a pianist, he switched to guitar and changed his stage name to Johnny ‘Guitar’ Watson in 1954 after he saw the Joan Crawford movie ‘Johnny Guitar’. He recorded his trademark song Gangster Of Love many times in his career. Here you can hear the one he cut for King Records in 1962 (King 57774) plus The Bear, a song he recorded for Class in 1959 (Class 2092) and two numbers he did earlier in his career for RPM Records Hot Little Mama (RPM 423) and She Moves Me (RPM 3066), first released in 1955 and 1956.

    This EP ‘For Gangster And Lovers’ contains some of the coolest of the many cool tracks our ‘Gangster Of Love’ ever recorded... Dig it!

  7. This Is It EP

    Gene & Eunice:
    This Is It EP (7 single/EP)

    Gene & Eunice ‘The Sweethearts of Rhythm And Blues’ were a Los Angeles based duo composed of singer-songwriters Gene Wilson (a.k.a Gene Forrest) and Eunice Levy. Gene was born Forrest Samuel Wilson, Jr. on September 3, 1931, in San Antonio, and Eunice was born Eunice Hazel Russ on March 12, 1931, in Texarkana, Texas. Gene & Eunice recorded more than a dozen self-penned songs between 1954 and 1959.

    The two met at local DJ Hunter Hancock’s talent show in Los Angeles. They started to date and they decided to get married after being together for a short time.

    They had a # 6 Billboard hit in 1954 with Ko Ko Mo a song covered by the likes of Perry Como, Louis Armstrong, the Crew-Cuts, the Charms, Hawkshaw Hawkins and at least a dozen more only in the first months after the song was released. Ko Ko Mo was originally recorded for the small Combo label but they re-recorded it again for Aladdin. Gene & Eunice became extremely popular and made appearances at the Apollo Theatre and Dick Clark’s television show. They had an another hit the following year with This Is My Story who reached # 8.

    in 1956 the duo cut Boom Boom Lulu (Aladdin 3351) which was based on a traditional West Indies song. It did not make to the American charts but it was a hit in Jamaica. Gene & Eunice were a big influence on Jamaican music and early Reggae. Many of their 45s were reissued on Jamaica’s Blank Records and Down Beat Records and were covered by Jackie & Doreen, Bunny & Rita (Bunny Wailer and Rita Marley) and other Jamaican singers. Gene & Eunice recorded a lot of great songs for Aladdin but they never had another hit, so the label finally let them go in 1958. Shortly after that Case Records signed Gene & Eunice.

    They recorded Poco-Loco paired with Go-On Kokomo (Case 1001) and the single reached # 48. In late 1958. Other records were released by the label but none of them became a hit or sold anything. The duo split two years later in 1960. Gene got himself a day job and Eunice married again and she continued to perform and record. In 1960 Combo Records issued Send Me Someone (Combo 165) by Eunice Levy a song probably recorded in 1954. Enjoy the boss tunes on this little platter. Gene & Eunice at their best here!

  16. A Shot Of Rhythm`n`Blues 33 rpm EP

    Alexander Arthur:
    A Shot Of Rhythm`n`Blues 33 rpm EP (7 single/EP)

    Alabama born, country soul pioneer, Arthur Alexander is one of those singers and songwriters almost all the big names of the music that we love name as a big influence. Hit songs like "Anna", or "You better move on" are great examples of a superb talent in composing as well as a highly distinctive melancholic singing voice.
    Keeping the line of the EP's we are releasing on the label, we feature here a few rare examples of Alexander's uptempo songs, like his cover of Clyde McPhatter's "Lover please" or his own original version of "A Shot of Rhythm and Blues", as well as both sides of the pretty elusive 45 released by him under the name of June Alexander, two songs ("The girl that radiates that charm" and "Sally Sue Brown") that already showcase all the ingredients that would make Arthur Alexander the favourite that he has always been.

    Enjoy these beautiful sides!

  17. Hey Love 33rpm EP

    McPhatter Clyde:
    Hey Love 33rpm EP (7 single/EP)

    The one and only Clyde McPhatter. One of the greatest (or the GREATEST) r&b singers of all time, such a classic name, such a big influence for many other stars that came later, and still a great unknown for many people into the sounds of classic r&b.

    The EP you are holding is almost a mini album! Six fantastic tracks ranging from floorfiller "Deep Sea Ball", to other great rockers like "Hey love" or his later version of "Such a night".

    Although we all know his biggest hits, some of his darker sides recorded during the early 60's show him in top form, rockin' and rollin' like he always did. And the tracks on this EP are the best example!!

    Rockin` Man EP (7 single/EP)

    Richard Berry, one of the big names on the west coast r&b scene will always be remembered for writing and performing two of the most popular songs ever... Have Love Will Travel and, of course, Louie Louie.

    The five tracks on this record are great example of his more rockin side with his two great classics plus other three fantastic songs that will make this EP a must for every DJ or collector!
