Both sides were recorded in St Louis in February 1949.
Personnel: Benjamin "Bull Moose" Jackson (vocal / tenor sax), Harold "Money" Johnson (trumpet), Eugene "Heads" Adams (alto sax), Frank Wess (tenor sax), Ted "Snooky" Hulbert (baritone sax), Billy Mann (piano), Franklin Skeete (bass), Les Erskine (drums).
It's time once more to pay a visit to El Enmascarados' record room where he slaves over that vintage Sparton radio / phono console and a heap of R&B seventy-eights. And of course this post also constitutes a sneak preview of an upcoming LP on Be Bop Wino - can anyone work out what that 12 incher is going to be?
My thanks to the mysterious masked one who has taken time out from his wrestling commitments south of the border to send in rips from shellac and label shots of Bull Moose Jackson's big 1949 hit "Little Girl Don't Cry" b/w "Moosey." This disc is an example of the two sides of Bull Moose - on one side the balladeer and on the other the sax blowin' leader of a jumpin' combo. It was the ballads which provided Bull Moose with his biggest hits. He was the top selling R&B artist of 1948 thanks to sentimental songs like "All My Love Belongs To You" and "I Love You, Yes I Do."
