Bobby Parker, "Watch Your Step"
KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are at Edgewood Recording Studio, Vermont Ave, Washington DC in 1961, for Bobby Parker's self-written and recorded "Watch Your Step", first released on the V-Tone label...
"Bobby Parker was a Louisiana-born, Los Angeles-raised, blues soul guitarist who paid his dues playing for all kinds of famous acts in the late 1950s. Relocated to Washington DC, he came up with "Watch Your Step" while messing around with Dizzy Gillespie's "Manteca" on his guitar. This tune in turn begat The Beatles' "I Feel Fine" and Led Zeppelin's "Moby Dick". It was first introduced to me by Dr. Feelgood. Born in 1937, Robert Lee Parker left us on Oct 31st, 2013 in a city called Bowie in Maryland, USA." - KV
