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.

Young Jessie is one of the unheralded greats of the R&B, Rock & Roll and Soul eras. Beginning his career as a young teenager in LA vocal group the Flairs (with schoolmate Richard Berry, later of 'Louie Louie' infamy), he then signed on with Modern records and cut several high quality R&B sides through the mid-1950s. Never quite achieving the level of fame and fortune of some of his immediate peers, the closest Young Jessie got to a hit was 1956's 'Mary Lou', which sold well regionally and was later on covered by the likes of Bob Seger and the Steve Miller band. Meanwhile, Young Jessie busied himself recording demos with Leiber & Stoller for one of their regular artists, Elvis Presley. Flitting between labels at the end of the 50s and into the 60s, his own output remained consistently of a very high quality, and always in step with the changing times - from doo wop in his beginnings through Blues, R&B, Rock & Roll and into Soul. Throughout all of that, Young Jessie always considered himself a Jazz singer first and foremost, and this influence underpins all of his vocal performances.
