Well, this is cool. I just ran into a couple Roscoe Gordon songs. He's been posted here before, and I'm certain I've voiced my preference for his stuff on Sun. His early stuff is like the link between rhythm and blues and reggae; and he's probably the only artist that had records on both Sun and Coxsone Dodd's Studio One. I do gravitate towards the Sun stuff, but even his later stuff is great. The first song of his that I ever heard was "Just A Little Bit" on a Vee Jay rhythm and blues compilation, which I think dates from the early sixties. But soon after that, I heard the collection of his stuff on Sun and was completely sucked in (thank you very much Charley Records).
Here's a couple that were on Boogaloo Time. Make sure you check the source posts (here and here) for other great R & B songs by Little Willie John, Wynonie Harris, Big Joe Turner, Etta James, LaVern Baker and others. Yeah. That nameless Boogaloo guy posts some good shit.
