Creepin' & Peepin' / Just Before Sunrise - Jesse Price / Buddy Floyd (Miltone 5250)
In response to a request on the Brown Gal post by "sunman" for "the two tracks Buddy Floyd recorded under his own name" I can only come up with one track - "Just Before Sunrise." This was released on the B side of Miltone 5250 in June 1949, advance notice of the release being listed in the June 18th 1949 issue of Billboard.
The A side was "Creepin' & Peepin'" by Jesse Price and His Jump Jivers. "Just Before Sunrise" was credited to Buddy Floyd with Maxwell Davis and the Miltone Orchestra.
And for those of you who are wondering who Buddy Floyd was, he was the tenor saxman in Roy Milton's Solid Senders. See "Brown Gal" and various other Roy Milton posts on the blog.
This disc was re-released on Gotham 236 in 1950 credited to "Jesse Price and The Jump Jivers."
Now can anyone help with any further recordings by Buddy under his own name? All info, and / or sound samples would be gratefully received.
Anyway, on with the show. "Creepin' & Peepin'' and "Just Before Sunrise" make an excellent instrumental pairing. Both sides are moody slow blues and excellent late night listening.
