============================================== AL COOL DADDY SMITH WITH A TRIBUTE TO JIMMY AND JOHNNY IN ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #4787
This show is part one of a two part series that will examine the recordings of an unheralded but outstanding R&B performer Jimmy "T-99" Nelson. Jimmy Nelson recorded across almost six decades beginning in the 1940's and stretching into the 21st. century. He had only two hits both of which were recorded early in his career but continued to record excellent blues and rhythm and blues recordings throughout the 1950's and beyond. As a result of this he became a distinguished elder statesmen of American music until his death in 2007. As mentioned above he had only two real hits one being "T-99 Blues" for which he received his nick name as well as "Meet Me With Your Black Dress On" a tune that has been recorded by countless artists since he first recorded the original. Both these hits were written by him as were most of the tunes that will played on these two shows. Jimmy Nelson was a disciple of Big Joe Turner and some attempt will be made to compare the two men's styles so as to show these similarities.
The play list is as follows":
1. Lucille-Big Joe Turner 1941 2. Second Hand Fool-Jimmy "T-99" Nelson 1953 3. Unlock The Lock-Jimmy "T-99" Nelson 1961 4. Play Me A 12 Bar Blues-Jimmy "T-99" Nelson 1995 5. I Sat And Cried-Jimmy "T-99" Nelson 1961 6. She's My baby-Jimmy "T-99" Nelson 1960 7. Kansas City Blues-Big Joe Turner ? 8. Rain Drop Blues-Jimmy "T 99" Nelson 1952 9. Baby Chile-Jimmy Nelson 1948 10. Fine Little Honey Dripper-Jimmy "T-99" Nelson 1952 11. T-99 Blues-Jimmy Nelson 1951 12. Sweetest Little Girl In The World-Jimmy "T-99" Nelson 1952 13. T-99 Blues-Tiny Bradshaw 1951 14. Bad Habit Blues-Jimmy "T-99" Nelson 1952 15. Big Eyed, Brown Eyed Girl Of Mine-Jimmy "T-99" Nelson 1952 16. Mean Poor Girl-Jimmy "T-99" Nelson 1954 17.

============================================== MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW ON ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #4790 - SPOTLIGHT ON YOUNG JESSE
The West Coast is often ignored as a post World War II Rhythm & Blues hot spot, but some mighty fine R&B artists, groups and labels called LA home. This week, "Juke In The Back" spotlights Obediah "Young" Jessie, one such unsung hero of Los Angeles' R&B scene during the 1950s. At age 16, Obie Jessie cut his first record with the Hollywood Blue Jays, which also included schoolmates Richard Berry and Cornell Gunter. The song, "I Had A Love" was written by Young Jessie and featured Gunter on lead. Soon, the group was renamed The Flairs and were recording for the Bihari Brothers' Flair Records. Jessie went solo in '54 and began working with Maxwell Davis' great band. In '55, he wrote and cut his more enduring song, "Mary Lou," which unfortunately wasn't a hit for Young Jessie, but became a huge hit for Ronnie Hawkins in '59. His Modern Records output was top-notch '50s R&B and Young Jessie was working with the best in the business. He was managed by Buck Ram, who also managed The Platters and The Penguins and he was recording with songwriters/producers Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, however, Young Jessie never enjoyed a national hit record. Matt The Cat spins the records that should-have-been hits by an artist that should be legendary. Dig Young Jessie on this week's "Juke In The Back."
1. Swanee River Boogie - Albert Ammons - Mercury 1947 2. Long Tall Girl - The Carnations - Lescay 1961 3. You Ain't Movin Me - Linda Hayes w/ Earl Warren Orch and Chorus - Antler 1959 4.
