Product Description:

Liner Note Author: John Dowler.
Percy Mayfield's tenure at RCA in the early 1970s is often unfairly overlooked in favor of his '60s work for Tangerine and other labels, but the compilation BLUES LAUREATE, thankfully, seeks to correct that error. Mayfield's inimitable way with a phrase, pouring the soul of a sensitive crooner through the gutsy style of a blues vocalist, is evident everywhere here, as is his excellent songwriting and well-crafted, expressive lyrics. BLUES LAUREATE is a great place to get introduced to a fine chapter in the career of this R&B icon.
