By the time of this records' release in 1962, Louis Jordan had been a performing and recording musician for nearly 25 years, and unfortunately his popularity had waned. Jordan was incredibly successful during the late '40's/ early '50's where, thanks to his popularity, became known as the King Of The Jukebox.

On this track (recorded for Ray Charles newly established Tangerine label), Jordan showed that he was perfectly capable of keeping up with then-contemporary r&b by delivering this MASTERPIECE. Another one of those "blink and you'll miss it" tracks (it clocks in at 1:48), Jordan packs a whole lot of musical sophistication, excellent vocals (both from himself and the backing female singers, probably the Raelettes), and a simply fabulous song, penned by Titus Turner.

from 1962...
