Buster Brown !

A Georgia native, Buster Brown ((1911-1976)) was a harmonica player who never made a recording until his late forties when he arrived in New York City in 1959 to record his one and only true hit, the classic Fanny Mae. He had a number of smaller hits in the early 60s before sinking into obscurity.

"Sugar Babe" is my personal favorite Buster Brown tune. Other favorites include "The Madison Shuffle" and "Raise A Ruckus Tonight".

'Is you is or is you ain't...' is a wonderful. Never come across Buster Brown before so thanks.

Unbelievable! I can't believe that one of my all-time favorite early Rolling Stones songs, The Under Assistant West Coast Promotion Man, turns out to be a total ripoff of Fannie Mae (musically, though not lyrically). Listen to this! Thanks for disillusioning me, man.
