Hi Guys
I'm sure you are all aware that Charles died the same day as Smokey Johnson. Info on Charles is virtually non existant on the internet. Can you folks post tracks that you KNOW he played on?
Thanx in advance,
KK

Kevin -

Yes, I had heard that... tough year for New Orleans, huh? I just heard we lost Skip Easterling this week as well...

Any one out there care to mention a few tracks?

Thanks!

Very, very interesting. The Rev. Utah Smith is mentioned, as well, for Gospel fans like me.

I guess that you're aware about Lynn Abbot's book about Rev. Utah Smith?

Own it, love it, and greatly admire Lynn Abbott, who has helped me with my ongoing excavation of Houston's secluded and magical Palladium label.

I played "Two Wings" at my Gospel DJ session last night, by the way. Records only, naturally.
