Description

[From the original 45 of Eddie King and Mae B. May's 1967 recording "Please Mr. D.J." on Chicago's Conduc Records! Here's the inaugural track to the "Daily Party Platter" series! And what a supreme slice of raw bluesy Chicago soul with wild harmony! Though this howling minor key diamond sounds like it came from a few years earlier, its from 1967! And it doesn't get much better than this... Eddie King was an Alabama-born Chicago West Side blues guitarist who worked with Little Mac early on, led his own band and was recorded by Willie Dixon. Mae B. May was his little sister who was reluctant to sing at first (hence her nickname - "Maybe I will, maybe I won’t") but when she got down to it, the wind reakky blew through those mighty pipes! Not long after this single the siblings separated. King would become Koko Taylor's longtime guitarist and Mae drifted back and forth between music and raising her ten children - doing a brief stint in Lonnie Brooks' legendary band. The duo reunited nearly two decades later for their first and only LP "Blues Has Got Me" before parting ways again. Eddie King just passed away in 2012. you can read up about them here: http://www.last.fm/music/Eddie+King+&+Mae+Bee+Mae and eddie king's wikipedia is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eddie_King_%28musician%29 This channel is a playlist consisting of the original 45rpm 7-inch vinyl records played at DJ Jonathan Toubin's New York Night Train parties!
