Here's a great DJ promo from Esquerita on Capitol. You think this one got much airplay?

Heard the song twice in New Orleans early 1959.

Haha, wow. Welcome to the blog Richard. Is that Rich H.?

Richard D - Esquerita wasn't big in N.O. radio. He was deemed to be too wild for the locals. Even black radio didn't play his records. Many whites just loved Little Richard, but not the Esquerita man, for some strange reason.

That's a shame... Have you ever seen a copy of his Capitol LP?

Richard said...

Only on eBay. Thanks for the link to my web site!

No problem...

He looks like Eddie Murphy dressed up as James Brown on SNL!

Jukeboxmafia said...

Ha! He does, a bit, at that...

Segue from this song, into Alex Chilton's "Lost My Job".
