KING COLEMAN - GET ON BOARD

Starting his musical career as a radio DJ in the '50's, Florida's Carlton "King" Coleman made his recording debut as the wildman shouting what can loosely be referred to as "vocals" on the pseudonymous (as Nat Kendricks & The Swans) James Brown release "Do The Mashed Potatoes" from 1959.

Here we find King (seven years later) adapting the old traditional spiritual "Get On Board Little Children" into something else entirely; a whole 'nother thang!

Now, who WOULDN'T wanna get on the train with King Coleman headin' to New Orleans? I sure as hell do!

from 1966...
