Louis (Blues Boy) Jones with Bobby Scott Orchestra – Come On Home (1962)

Scroll down to content

Don’t know when this frantic r’n’b gem was released, but most likely in 1962 or 1963, it’s on the Sabra label. Audio transferred from original vinyl 45. Listen to another rare track, I’ll Be Your Fool, here.
