Product Description:

Percy Mayfield was famous for writing the timeless songs 'Hit the Road Jack' and 'Please Send Me Someone to Love', as well as being a hit-making R&B artist known for his smooth, relaxed, vocal style. Mayfield sang melancholy Blues ballads, mostly his own songs, in a gentle, sad, vocal style. His most famous recording 'Please Send Me Someone To Love', a number one R&B hit in 1950, was widely influential and recorded by many other singers. The song is a brilliant combination of sensitivity to wider issues of conflict in the world and the very personal need for love. In 1961 he came to the attention of Ray Charles with his song 'Hit The Road Jack', and signed to The Genius' own label, Tangerine Records - primarily as a songwriter where he wrote 'Hide Nor Hair'. 'At The Club', 'Danger Zone', and 'On The Other Hand, Baby' . Mayfield's songs tended to be downbeat and heartbreaking, but his vulnerability and emotional sensitivity prevent songs such as 'Life Is Suicide' and 'The River's Invitation' from being maudlin. Here then is a selection of his timeless hits as a singer and songwriter, just the thing for those lonely, wee hours, melancholy yet somehow joyful. 29 tracks. Rev-Ola. 2007
