This new opus of Texas blues and R&B puts the focus on three ill-known blues artists and one better known but recording here under a long time mysterious nickname.

Louis Howard, a singer and probably guitarist, has been active during a decade (c. 1956-66) on the Dallas-Fort Worth area with several bands he led, namely The Charms or The Red Hearts. He played in the local clubs and opened for big touring acts. His first 45 gives two strong blues with nice guitar solos and fills by Cornell Dupree. After a record in duo with a certain Arthur Noiel, Howard made two more singles in a more Soul vein, the last being recorded in Miami with Fred Williams' Rocketeers.

Even more obscure is singer Charles Maxfield who recorded a sole session in Houston in January 1954 backed by saxophonist Leo Baxter's band.

Guitarist and singer Perry Cain (born 22nd February 1925 at Waverly, Tx) was very active in the Houston blues scene during the late 1940's and 1950's, recording a number of singles in which pianist Buster Pickens shines throughout. During the 1960's, Perry was a noted DJ at KCOH's Houston. He died 24 April 1975 at his Houston's home.

Tee Bee Fisher is none other that Louisiana singer/guitarist Joey Long (Joseph Longoria, born at Zwolle, La. on 17 December 1932. Long acquired quickly a strong reputation as a guitarist and he played in New Orleans and then Houston with numerous bands, recording behind Clarence Frogman Henry, Ivory Joe Hunter, Lightnin' Hopkins, Doug Sahm, Big Walter Price, T-Bone Walker.... He also recorded under his own name on a more rock oriented genre and his influence on Johnny Winter and Billy Gibbons was very strong. Joey died in Houston on 22 March 1995. --- Gérard Herzhaft, jukegh.blogspot.com
