Herb Hardesty Beatin' and Blowin' Federal 12410 - 1961
Audio File Deleted
Herb Hardesty was the sax player on most of Fats Domino's recordings and worked as a session man on more great New Orleans records than I can count. However, he only put out 4 releases (that I know of) under his own name. This one on the Federal label from 1961 is pretty great. Not sure of the personnel on this one, but listen to those drums... I've always thought that this song would make a great intro theme for a fifties R&B radio show. You know, like the kind they have over at www.wwoz.org
This is simply a blog where I post interesting 45s that I come across. I'm not an expert on records or music history and I'm fairly lazy, so don't expect a lot of exhaustive background or research. Comments are highly encouaged...
Most of the music files presented here come from my personal 45 collection and are posted for purposes of musical enlightenment only. These are mostly obscure songs, over 40 years old, that may not have been reissued on CD. The intention is to raise awareness of underappreciated artists/songs. If you like what you hear, seek these artists out on CD or get out there and find some of this old vinyl for yourself... If you are the copyright holder and wish any files to be removed, I will do so immediately upon request.
