Didn't he ramble...



Here's one you don't hear that often.

The Flambo label looks to be a one-off effort, probably owned by Earl King [that's just a guess]. As you can see on the record, King wrote and produced the song. The arranger, Curtis Mitchell, was a long time bass player for King. As I recall, he also played piano with Danny White.

The name Billy Jenkins rings no bells whatsoever.

This is an interesting 45, do yourself a favor and listen past the spoken intro, then be sure and check out side two. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

Hope ya enjoy...
