KID-ORBIS-TRIO, Wild Cat Blues, 1959Posted: July 29, 2012
To cash in on Chris Barber´s hit record on the Pye label, Delta-Ton coupled the same two songs together. Petite Fleur, originally recorded by Sidney Bechet in Paris in 1952, was covered by Chris Barber three years later. After initially failing to chart, Pye released the record again in 1959. Although Chris Barber´s version lacked the intensity and passion of Sidney Bechet´s original it sold more than one million records in the US and ten million copies word wide. Wild Cat Blues was written by Fats Waller and Clarence Williams in 1923.
Now who is Sammy Zabanzaff ?
