Released:
Label: Specialty Records
A legendary if somewhat obscure singer/songwriter/saxophonist, Percy Mayfield racked up a long string of hits throughout the fifties, and also collaborated with Ray Charles (writing "Hit The Road Jack" among others), in the sixties. Blessed with an extraordinarily smooth but evocative voice, his inimitable style shines bright on this collection.
