Description

Euro R&B Jocks start the New Year of 2020 with a bang, This 45 seldom surfaces for sale. An unforgettable chunk of explosive R&B, a stomping rarity is a serious slab of 1954 Los Angeles jump Blues bubbling up with all those motivational ingredients, guaranteed to demolish the dancefloor and wow the public.

Now prepare yourself for a bumpy ride on an uneven road to rocking R&B-ville... from a highly respected mid-50's imprint that recorded L.A.'s finest. Ray Agee, Gil Bernel, The Robins, Ernie Andrews, Riff Ruffin, Bobby Day etc. A quick google with conform this Frankie Marshall as one of the label's "impossibles" with less than 1 every 4/5 years this century, popping out the woodwork; none of those runaways reaching the heart of the competitive European R&B turntables..

Here's a rare opportunity to acquire a super clean copy of a record bristling with monster potential!

Frankie's gargling vocal hooks into the racing cocktail of honkin' horns, stabbing piano before an insane saxophone slices the session straight down the middle. Frankie jumps back in, his voice even more insistent than ever and the session lifts off again, leaving you breathless by the end.

A blinding stomper, relentless, brutal and unforgiving.. like all the good stuff is.
