View Full Version : Big Maybelle question
03-06-2012, 07:11 AM
I've been looking everywhere but cannot figure out what male vocalist is singing "That's A Pretty Good Love", the B-side of the single "Candy" by Big Maybelle.
Any help is welcomed

You could post a comment under that video and ask the person who posted it if they know who the male vocalist is. Maybe another viewer who is a collector will chime in.

It must have been someone like Nappy Brown who was also signed to Savoy Records at the time.

Since TJ Lubinsky's Grandfather owned the label he might know who it is.

I know this so far... Record session took place in NYC, May 14, 1956... only Big Maybelle is credited on the label and session men are Dave McRae (alt sax) Buddy Lucas, Warren Lucky (tenor sax) Leslie Johnakins (bariton sax) Kelly Owens (piano, arr) Mickey Baker (guitar) Leonard Gaskin (bass) Sol Hall (drums) Big Maybelle (vocal)
... but who is the male guy singing together with Big Maybelle? To me it sounds a bit like Willie Dixon... but who knows?

It is Buddy Lucas! He also recorded a few singles in his own name... singing.
