Ever heard of this West Coast R&B shouter from the '40's/'50's?
I hadn't,but liked the look of the LP (on Krazy Kat) that I saw
in the racks today,and took a chance.
Very good.
Mostly swingin' 12 bar stuff with T-Bone-esque guitar.
The Great Gates sounds a bit like Roy Brown (but only a bit).
A pleasant surprise.
What do you know about him?
