Roscoe Gordon tonight. Kind of an unsung hero in the annals of rock n' roll/R&B history. People who know, know about him. People who don't, listen to him and like him. He didn't have a huge career but he had a substantial one. Like many artists during the period (1950's) he recorded for a ton of labels including Vee-Jay, the legendary Chicago label from which tonight's track, Just A Little Bit comes from a 1959 session and probably some of the best material of his recording career.
But . . . don't take my word for it.
