The two finest sides by the American blues tenor saxophonist & vocalist.

Never attaining the same glistening level of fame that fellow New York sax blasters Sam 'The Man' Taylor & King Curtis enjoyed, Big John Greer nevertheless blew strong & sang long on a terrific series of waxings for RCA Victor & its Groove subsidiary from 1949 to 1955. This 7" couples the two songs widely considered his best work, a pair of sterling sax-fuelled tunes that should have been afforded greater recognition at the time & are ripe for rediscovery.
