Very elusive 1953 Big Gal Chicago R&B shaker, rarely encountered as a 7" 45.

Sax Kari dismissive composition, warning his daughter to stay from her "no good man" who has latched onto her, the snarling voice of Gloria Irving tells the story of "Dad" advice to his offspring. Not my problem, that's your "Red Wagon Now". A really cool message, delivered by one very sassy lady.

Gloria went on to record that heavy big money R&B want "I Need A Man" on Cobra, much commoner than this release from 4 years earlier. So get a listen European R&B DJ's, this rare shaker has the potential to emulate her more-available Cobra 45 is glaring. As Gloria displays her ability to strut and boom a tune.

The lyrics "That's Your Red Wagon" comes from the habit of young children pulling "Tin Red (trollies) Wagons" behind them through the neighbourhood filling them up with worthless things to take home. Sax Kari lyrics are hit home good and hard by his brazen vocalist, paused by a killer sulking saxophone break from the great man himself. Swinging Sax Kari knows how to weald an instrument. Underlining Gloria's error of filing her life with useless things.

VERY RARE 45 in standout condition - saturated in untapped potential.
