============================================== MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW ON ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #4763 - SPOTLITE ON THE GRIFFIN BROTHERS
The Griffin Brothers
This week, "Juke In The Back" features The Griffin Brothers, one of the unsung Rhythm & Blues groups from the early 1950s. Jimmy
and "Buddy" Griffin began in their hometown of Norfolk, VA in the late
'40 playing jump blues. They settled in Washington, DC and were asked to
backup Roy Brown on "Hard Luck Blues" in April, 1950. That recorded
went to #1 in August and soon the brothers had their own record deal
with Randy Wood's Dot Records out of Gallatin, TN. With vocalists Margie
Day and Tommy Brown, The Griffin Brothers Orchestra scored six charting R&B hits from 1950-52, before embarking on separate solo careers in 1954. Matt The Cat features The Griffin's biggest hits, jumpin' B-sides and solo records on this week's "Juke." The Griffin Brothers were an important part of R&B's rise, scoring a #1 smash in early 1952 with "Weepin' & Cryin'" (featuring Tommy Brown on lead vocals) and now they're finally getting their due, even if time has left them behind.
