Ridiculously rare under-the-radar St. Louis R&B shaker, headed up by Clayton's love's reaching vocal, unlike his 1956 original version of "Groove" this Bobbin creation is backed by an uncredited "Gateway" male vocal-group, updated and improved.

This one of the really elusive Bobbin 45's from 1959, St. Louis' premier R&B / Blues/ Soul label which during its 4 year existence recorded Little Milton, Albert King, Fontella Bass, Oliver Sain are among some of the top artists who spring-boarded from here, to build highly successful R&B / Soul careers. But what a about the talented Blues singer Clayton Love with his expressive Jackie Wilson-esque hic-cup delivery, an imposing R&B dancer who never quite crossed over to Soul music fame. .

We feel this "Bye Bye, Baby" has been past over by most everyone who appreciates St. Louis R&B. Its rarity keeping it way under the radar for over 6 decades. With only the limited 1987 European CD "St. Louis Kings Of Rhythm" paying homage to Clayton's work with five tracks including "Mistreated" are captured but "Bye Bye, Baby" does not feature at all.

A proper R&B shaker drenched in potential, Blues fans with adore "Mistreated"

Especially in immaculate crackle free condition!
