Esquerita: Wildcat Shakeout

Esquerita: Wildcat Shakeout
Artist: Esquerita
Title: Wildcat Shakeout

Digitally re-mastered and expanded edition. Worshipped by rock gods such as Little Richard and Gene Vincent, flamboyant gospel pianist S Q Reeder Jr. was tempted into the recording studio several times in 1958 to demonstrate his secular capabilities. However, the resulting Wildcat Shakeouts, by the renamed Esquerita, were deemed far too extreme even for black radio... Judge for yourself! Bolstered by a handful of additional tracks, this release gathers together all of his original 1958-59 releases. Also included as an additional bonus are both sides of the debut single by erstwhile Blue Cap, Paul Peek, on which the Wildcat plays piano in his inimitable style.
