Description

Blows His Wig [Import] on CD

Along with his contemporaries Big Jay McNeely and Joe Houston, Chuck Higgins was one of the three kings of post-WWII Los Angeles R&B sax blasting. During the 1950s Higgins and his group the Mellotones cut around 100 slabs of mostly hot rockin' R&B for just about every LA R&B indie you could think of. This CD spotlights his work for Jake Porter's Combo Records and is full of the reckless, good-time rhythm & blues that everyone associates with that label's output. The earliest of the sides included here feature the first recorded vocal performances of Johnny Guitar Watson (then primarily known as a boogie piano man), including the original master of 'Motor Head Baby', from which a certain famous heavy metal power trio got their name. Also featured are some classic early R&B rockers with vocals by Chuck's brother Fred aka 'Daddy Cleanhead', all of which are highly prized by collectors of uptempo rhythm 'n' rock. Ace.
