Gino Parks - Fire / For This I Thank You
Gino Parks
Fire / For This I Thank You
7" | 2015 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
7,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Two absolute winners from Gino Parks, a singer whose career took off when he moved to Detroit in the mid-50s. Beginning with a number of duets with the notorious Andre Williams for the equally legendary Fortune label, Parks then appeared as a solo artist for Berry Gordy's then fledgling Tamla stable. These two sides appeared in 1962 on the second of three singles cut for Tamla. This is really a true double A, we're sure you will find it impossible to pick between the evocative, infectious early soul sound of 'For This I Thank You' and the all guns blazing R&B explosion of 'Fire'. Our solution is to play them back to back, loud...
Billy Red Love - A Dream / Hey Now
Billy Red Love
A Dream / Hey Now
7" | 2016 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
8,99 €*
Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Two originally unissued recordings from the legendary Sun studios released here on 45 for the first time! Little known pianist and singer Billy 'Red' Love recorded the jazzy, otherwordly and exotic masterpiece 'A Dream' (as featured on Jukebox Mambo Vol 1) along with the playful R&B side 'Hey Now' in long buried sessions from the early 50s, so it's a joy to finally see them released on 45 bearing the iconic Sun emblem.
Jack Mcvea - Wino
Jack Mcvea
Wino
7" | 2016 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
8,99 €*
Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Top drawer Jazzy Rhythm & Blues from California based bandleader Jack McVea, here with one of his signature pieces, the uproarious boozehead anthem 'Wino', presented on the A-side with his upbeat mid-50s R&R-style take recorded for Combo, and in its original, glorious '40s incarnation on the flip side (which incidentally appears on 7" 45rpm vinyl for the first time ever here).
Chanters, The / Brother Woodman - She Wants to Mambo / Watts
S. Johnson - Red Hot Mama / Don't You Worry
S. Johnson
Red Hot Mama / Don't You Worry
7" | 2017 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
8,99 €*
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Red Hot Mama' is a cracking mid-50s R&B number that will bless any DJ set or record collection. The personnel and indeed the singer - known only as 'S. Johnson' - remain something of a mystery, though it's known to have been recorded in New Orleans for the Chess label, and certainly the second line drum rolls sound highly reminiscent of NOLA session drummer Charles 'Hungry' Williams. Either way, this is yet another unissued gem making its first appearance on 45rpm vinyl on the Jukebox Jam imprint.
Paul Gayten - For You My Love / Down Boy
Paul Gayten
For You My Love / Down Boy
7" | 2015 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
8,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Unissued Rhythm & Blues magic from the great New Orleans based bandleader Paul Gayten. 'For You My Love' is an uptempo romper with a groovy Latin rhythm and catchy melody, while 'Down Boy' is more of a slouching tempo, full of honking horns and playful vocals. Both sides were originally recorded for the Chess brothers Argo offshoot but went unreleased at the time. The now appear here together on 45rpm for the very first time!?
Young Jessie - Pretty Soon / Well Baby
Young Jessie
Pretty Soon / Well Baby
7" | 2015 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
7,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Two great R&B sides from Young Jessie, both appearing on 45rpm for the very first time! Both 'Pretty Soon' and 'Well Baby' were originally recorded for the Bihari brothers Modern label in the mid-50s, and whilst the former did appear on an early 60s budget compilation album on the Crown off-shoot, 'Well Baby' surfaced a lot more recently on a CD retrospective. What isn't clear is why these great recordings were canned in the first place, but either way this welcome 45rpm pressing is surely a must-have for the R&B fiends.
Roy Brown - Butcher Pete Part 1 & 2
Roy Brown
Butcher Pete Part 1 & 2
7" | 2014 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
7,99 €*
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Roy Brown makes his third appearance on the Jukebox Jam series with 'Butcher Pete', an outrageously lewd uptempo Jump Blues banger. Originally cut on 78 only in 1950, using a somewhat gruesome double entendre the song warns husbands and boyfriends to watch out for Pete, newly arrived in town and indiscriminately 'chopping' through all the 'meat' in town using his 'long sharp knife'. It's a wonder how they got away with this stuff!
Roy Brown - I'm A Rockin' Man / Everything's Alright
Roy Brown
I'm A Rockin' Man / Everything's Alright
7" | 2014 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
7,99 €*
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Mid-century R&B from one of the best artists of the blues shouter era - none other than Roy Brown. 'I'm A Rockin' Man' is, as its title suggests, a upfront and bold slab of Jump Blues machismo. Before Rock & Roll became established as a genre in itself, artists such as Roy Brown were laying the foundations, in both tone and attitude, with swaggering, brazenly libidinous floor-shakers like this.
Steve Gibson - Big Game Hunter
Steve Gibson
Big Game Hunter
7" | 2013 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
7,99 €*
Release:2013 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Risque R&B from the well-traveled bandleader Steve Gibson. Over a catchy but minimal, syncopated and snappy drum, bass and guitar and piano backing, the baritone vocal runs through various double entendres with a hunting theme as backing vocal group the Red Caps egg him along. He's a big game hunter, with a big game hunter's gun... You get the picture... And if not, Gibson's wife Damita Jo LeBlanc joins the party as the song fades, 'Great Big ol' game hunter' she purrs. Just how did they get away with this kind of thing back in '53?!?
Paul Perryman - Look At My Baby / Keep A Callin'
Paul Perryman
Look At My Baby / Keep A Callin'
7" | 2013 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
7,99 €*
Release:2013 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Two great sides from singer Paul Perryman, both originally cut for Bobby Robinson's Fire label. 'Look At My Baby' is a moody, atmospheric blues with great gospel-like backing vocals and an overall popcorn appeal, whilst 'Keep A Callin' is a more uptempo rocker with a nicely brash organ riff and wicked, scratchy guitar work.
Chuck Higgins - Blacksmith Blues
Chuck Higgins
Blacksmith Blues
7" | 2012 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
7,99 €*
Release:2012 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Super wig-twisting blooze stroller from one of the 50s LA R&B fraternity's finest honkers, Chuck Higgins. Comes complete with a laid back barrel-house piano, trademark sleazy sax break and ad-libbed gibberish lyrics. What more could you possibly need from a record?!?
Camille Howard - Fiesta In Old Mexico / Within This Heart
Camille Howard
Fiesta In Old Mexico / Within This Heart
7" | 2012 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
7,99 €*
Release:2012 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
We first featured Camille Howard quite a few releases back on JBJ 1017, with the steamy, sensual blues rumba of 'Shrinking Up Fast', a track which also features on our 'Jukebox Mambo' compilation (Out November). We've now returned to the great Miss Howard for another two amazing sides of Latin edged Rhythm & Blues, both recorded for the Specialty label and previously available on 78rpm only. Such is the quality of both tracks, this is really a double A release as we couldn't really decide which we preferred between the playful, rhumboogie of 'Fiesta In Old Mexico' and the deeper, exotic jazz sound of 'Within This Heart Of Mine'. Either way, rest assured both tracks are smoking hot killers, with slinky Latin style percussion giving way to rolling boogie woogie piano and Camille Howard's superior sultry vocals all combining to great effect.
Charles Sheffield - I Got Fever
Hubert Robinson - High Class Woman / Old Woman Boogie
Hubert Robinson
High Class Woman / Old Woman Boogie
7" | 2012 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
6,39 €* 7,99 € -20%
Release:2012 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Two raucous, stomping bar-room bawlers here from obscure blues shouter Hubert Robinson of Houston, Texas, singing over a really hot backing group playing it pretty loose with twanging bass, a head-nodding beat and honking horn eruptions! Robinson's brief recording career began in 1947 as featured vocalist with sax-man Curtis Amy. From there, Robinson moved on to feature with a couple of other orchestra's before releasing two 78's for the husband and wife owned local Houston stable Macy's. We've picked the best of those two releases for this pairing, first time ever on 45rpm vinyl with label artwork which lovingly restores the original Macy's design!
Eunice Davis - Get Your Enjoys
Eunice Davis
Get Your Enjoys
7" | 2012 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
7,99 €*
Release:2012 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Eunice Davis’ super slinky - and super risqué - vocals combine with a stuttering, off-kilter rhythm on this great and totally unique number cut in the mid-50s for the Deluxe subsidiary of King records. At the time, the talented Davis was working as one half of an in-house writing team for King, with Lowman ‘El’ Pauling, but she had also led a slew of releases herself, signing off her career with the regional hit, ‘Rock Little Daddy’ for Derby Records in New York. ‘Get Your Enjoys’ was sadly to be the only release for Deluxe and her career drifted into local obscurity soon after. On the flip is ’Go To Work Pretty Daddy’, another transparently lewd ditty set to a brash, big city Jump Blues backing, this from Eunice Davis’ sole release for the Atlantic label.
Larry Dale - Down To The Bottom / Midnight Hours
Larry Dale
Down To The Bottom / Midnight Hours
7" | 2010 | UK | Original (Juke Box Jam)
7,99 €*
Release:2010 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
The Texan born Larry Dale only recently passed away, in May 2010, aged 87. His passing is doubly sad for us, as he never got to see these two gems pressed up and released on 45rpm vinyl, as they should have been some 55 years ago. Discovered a while back languishing in the vaults of Groove, a long defunct sub of RCA set up to handle the parent labels R&B output, these two sides were recorded at New York sessions in the mid-50s. Both tracks feature the sterling guitar and arrangement skills of the legendary Mickey Baker, and the handiwork of the equally infamous Jack Dupree on the '88s. ‘Down To The Bottom’ is a real monster - a rolling Blues Rhumba with crashing piano rolls and rather suggestive lyrics from Dale, who is headed down to the Gulf of Mexico to find himself a woman - with one pre-requisite, “She‘s got to like to jelly roll”. Whatever he’s talking about, and I’ll let you all draw your own conclusions, one thing is clear, and that is that this is a floor-rocking, roof-raiser of a record. On the flip, ‘Midnight Hours’ is a low and greasy, down home Blues, cut in the same session and the likely intended B-side. In the event, the single was inexplicably pulled from release by Groove. As such, we have maintained the original Groove logo and label design for this long overdue 45rm vinyl pairing of these two great rocking Blues sides.
