There's not much info around about Johnny Talbot [this is the only 45 credited to him as Tolbert]. He worked out of Oakland, and released 4 [?] singles, three on Jasman, and one on Modern. There may be another 45 I'm forgetting.
It's funny that he recorded so little, because I believe there was a good deal of fuss made over him in the press at one time. I've found a couple of mentions of him touring with various heavy-weights. That's all I know.
As much as I like slower grooves, to my mind it's the slightly faster instrumental b-side that's the real killer.
Hope ya'll enjoy....
