Known as the "poet of the blues," Percy Mayfield was a songwriter nonpareil, who transmuted the sound of postwar R&B to suit his own purposes, scoring hits of his own and writing hits for others. MEMORY PAIN is a unique collection of the recordings Mayfield made for the Specialty label in the first half of the 1950s. It contains some of his signature tunes, such as the immortal "Please Send Me Someone To Love," as well as some of his lesser known (though equally great) compositions, and even his own recording of "Hit the Road Jack," which Ray Charles picked from the Mayfield songbag. Whether it's a stone-cold classic or some archival esoterica, though, every track here is given its own dose of magic via Mayfield's bluesy croon, idiosyncratic songwriting, and beautifully broken heart.
