EDD HENRY - CROOKED WOMAN


There are certain records that shine like a beacon through the fog in the distance, and when they make their way into my collection it feels like a small victory and I make no attempt to hide my excitement. This record is certainly one of those and lemme tell you it is NOT easy to find! Thanks not only to its placement on the Numero Group's compilation devoted to Big Mack records, and also a brilliant (but historically inaccurate) appearance on Mad Men (aka the best TV show ever) this is a 45 that is certainly on many want lists. Sure felt good to cross it off of mine!

Ed McCoy was another man in Detroit who had a dream to follow in the footsteps of Motown, and with a loan and a lot of hope he brought his new discovery, Edd Henry, into United Sound studio along with a CRACKING band (the drumming on this track is simply from another planet) to cut this monster for his newly minted Bog Mack label. Sadly, the record drifted into obscurity with no real local airplay even.

Hopefully Edd (and Ed) are still around to see some of the belated success of this record.

from 1966...

Holly Cow! No way.
Love this record, a real white whale of sorts. Glad you found one. Unbelievable! Please send me the B side (if there's any...).
