St. Louis Blues Mystery Track - Help!
A blog follower has sent in this track with a request to identify the artist. Our fellow Be Bop Wino taped this track along with others from a radio show a number of years ago. He is in the process of converting a load of these old radio tracks to mp3 but can't find the artist for this one. He thought that it might have been The Dozier Brothers, but a listen on YouTube clearly demonstrates that their version of "St. Louis Blues" is different from this one.
It sounds like a 1950s R&B vocal group accompanied by a good sax player. The lead vocalist sounds maddeningly familiar but I can't place him. Can anyone out there identify this group?
Alternatively you can download the track from here:

Dedicated to REAL R&B, Rock'n'Roll, Blues and Jazz
This is a site dedicated to rockin' 1940s and 1950s music, ripped from vinyl. Some cuts are a bit on the rough side. If you're looking for audio perfection you're on the wrong site baby! If you like what you hear on this site please buy this kind of music. There are many reasonably priced reissues available from web dealers or perhaps from your local record shop, if it still exists. These reissues will be in far better sound quality than the vinyl rips on this site and they will usually have more up to date liner notes and info, so go out and splash a little cash now and again. Help keep those reissue labels going in these difficult times.
No in-print CDs will be posted here. In fact no CDs will be posted here. I will occasionally list recommended purchases to help you hear more from artists featured on the blog.
"The night is the corridor of history, not the history of famous people or great events, but that of the marginal, the ignored, the supressed, the unacknowledged; the history of vice, of error, of confusion, of fear, of want; the history of intoxication, of vainglory, of delusion, of dissipation, of delirium."
