What a perfect record to start the weekend off with! Larry Dixon recorded some soul and boogie material in the early eighties that are very indemand with collectors and DJ´s worldwide today and are fetching high prices on sites like Ebay. And no wonder, with dynamite stuff like this for example coupled with problably only a coulpe of thousand copies (or less) to go around, prices are bound to rocket.
Larry Dixon started his singing career at the age of 15 when he won a radio competion, receiving an audition with the mighty men of Chicago soul, Phil and Leonard Chess. Although he never released anything on the label he established himself as an artist within the music community. He then joined the army, and when he was out again by the late seventies he decided to have another go at the music industry. He formed his own company, LAD records and released material which was often written by himself and/or good friend Charlie Hosch Jr., nicknamed Chuck-A-Luck.
This selfpenned gem from Dixon was released in 1982, and is not to my knowledge on any of his two albums. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
