Rare and clean 1956 Texas Jump Blues, backed with an early Deep Soul ballad.

Moody, mid-tempo R&B shaker, dominated by piano rhythms leading Mr. Wayne's beseeching demands along a trail of R&B dance.

The flipside is a before it's time Deep Soul experience, with not Blues rhythms to interrupt is despair. Decorated by insistent highly pitched girl choruses.

This is James Wayne most-elusive 45, and it's a good 'un.

Now reveals some light paper sleeve contact scuffing. B-side vinyl has an occasional pimple from the pressing plate. A few light ticks at the intro. Listen and view images.
