Oh what an EXCELLENT record!!!!
Bobby Treetop seems to have released three records on the Tuff label; this is the only one I've heard, and it's a track that's been sought after on the collector's circuit since the early '70's. Surprisingly, there doesn't seem to be any information about this record! Producer Benny Golson was a jazz musician from Philadelphia who took a break from performing to concentrate on studio work. He was located in New York City in the sixties, so perhaps this is a New York record? It gets credited as being from Chicago and although stylistically that would be an easy fit it doesn't seem to be.
Nevertheless, all that matters is what's in the grooves and damn is this a mighty record.
