KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are at 1540 Brewster Ave, Cincinnati, Ohio on the 2nd July, 1951 for Wynonie Harris' "Lovin' Machine", first released as a 78RPM on King Records...
"Wynonie "Mr.Blues" Harris was born in Omaha in 1915, where he made a name for himself as a dancer and MC on the local club scene. By 1940, he had moved to Los Angeles and within 5 years had made it as a hit "Jump Blues" singer. By all accounts, Wynonie actually lived the wild life he so boisterously chronicled in his records (the subjects of which were usually either sex or booze). His swaggering style of delivery is widely acknowledged as one of the earliest examples of what came to be known as rock'n'roll.
He left us in 1969, aged 53, having seen more 'action' than many might have seen in several lifetimes." - KV
