Ervin's least seen R&B thumper!

RARE and flawless 1960 Los Angeles R&B shaker backed up with a fabulous Deep Soul ballad. Rarely, if ever being found in this spectacular mint minus condition.

Take a listen to an accomplished California R&B Blues man who never fails but to wow the crowd, with his potent portrayals of Jimmy Liggins compositions... Ervin's association with the prolific "Liggins" took him countrywide, making and performing some of the most powerful of early 60's street-level R&B.

This example in our experience is his rarest 45, and in this impeccable condition, a R&B impossible!

Check out Ervin's imposing vocal strolling through a brass laden orchestral arrangement backed up with the Nighthawks male vocal choruses, softening those with mighty brass-bombs raining down throughout the production.

Ervin is the consummate R&B performer, demonstrating how to make the biggest impact with a booming at ease vocal, that just glides through the full throttle backing.

Don'tcha just love am unhurried artist at the top of his game, meandering through punchy R&B softly growling for your attention, his understated approach works so well.

Killer R&B dancer, his least seen most sought after 45 in eye-popping condition.
Do not pass by.
