Hello good people of Earth! Big Charlie Skinner here with some more Rhythm & Blues you should be aware of. This time it’s coming straight outa New Orleans in 1961.
Alvin Robinson is of whom I speak, I been listening to this song non stop for weeks!
The Man has got Soul.
So next time your at your local record shop, do yourself a solid, pick up some of New Orleans’ own soul man Al Robinson.
Speaking of bands from New Orleans! The Dirty Bourbon River Show will be tearing up the Philmore TONIGHT at 9:00PM in Ft. Wayne Indiana. So If you need some New Orleans Flavor for your Friday, come on down to 2441 Broadway.
