From the label that gave you Little Rose His Rhythm And Blues Band + the highly sought after Lil' Major Williams, before folding with this, their last 45 release.

Killer Houston R&B from this much travelled Bluesman - having worked with many prestigious Blues artists. Like opening for Bobby “Blue” Bland in Texas. Whilst also being noted as a major cog in the Bay Area Blues scene with Clifton Chenier, Sonny Rhodes, Cool Papa, J. J. Malone in Berkeley club circuit and a frequenter of Arhoolie Records down on San Pablo Ave, in El Cerrito. A label dedicated to promoting Blues/R&B around "The Bay". Also Big Roger rubbed shoulders with Harmonica maestro Charlie Musselwhite, a man who played a major part in The Chicago Southside Blues revival in the 60's. Big Roger had been hanging out with some of the best for a long time.

Big Roger Collins was already a seasoned Blues performer by the time he, "Freddie Collins" had written and performed this addictive R&B dancer with his long-term backing band "The Soul Blues Kings".

A real rarity first coming into Northern Soul view, when the investigative NS vinyl dealer/collector/DJ Andy Dyson discovered its narcotic dancefloor appeal. Briefly covering it up as Big Daddy Rogers, a very apt christening. For this 45 also carries a booming husky vocal, backed with relentless guitar riffs, whirring Hammond keyboard backdrop, peppered with steady thwacking percussion, beating out that must-dance invitation.

Proper street-level R&B dancer, from real-deal experienced Blues musicians. But it is Big Roger's snarling, yelps and shrieks of protest that lift this session up yet another notch into an addictive, need-to-hear again-and-again winner...

plus a bonus with the flipside, being a thundering R&B stepper also.

Potential in the right hands… is self-evident.
