WALTER SCOTT - WATCH OUT
This record just flat out SWINGS!
Walter Scott was the lead singer for Bub Kuban & The In Men (of "The Cheater" fame; an absolutely brilliant record), and he released some excellent solo sides (including "Silly Girl" which was featured here a few years back). Walter was white and possessed a very strong set of soulful pipes which are shown to great effect on this record.
In a horrible twist of fate, Walter was murdered in the early 1980's by the man his own wife was cheating on him with (along with the killer's own wife). At least "the cheaters" were caught, convicted and thrown in jail (Walter's wife was an accessory). Luckily, a handful of records were cut that show off the talent of this man, snuffed out well before his time.
