Isn't the first one a cover of Nappy Brown? Got this somewhere, never struck me as good as some of his other stuff. Was Tiny Powell English?

Don't know about Jr Wells - written by Mel London if thats any help...typical Chicago blues, piano backing...I doubt very much Tiny Powell was English, you're probably thinking of his long lost cousin, Enoch.

PMSL you're right. Enoch Powell and the Rivers of Blood Band. On Caltone weren't they?

Wasn't there some bloke called Powell who did a song called Sugar Babe (or not called Sugar Babe but the same as the one called Sugar Babe, err, with a different title, if you follow me :unsure: ) about three times on British labels between 63 and 65?

Tiny Powell was from Oakland, California. Had a record on the same label as Eddie Foster's "Closer Together", Ocampo, called "Get My Hat" among others. Was in the same gospel group as Emorise Kelly and (maybe) Buddy Conner...
