Young Jessie !




It's Tuesday !
It's Young Jessie !
Born on Dec 28, 1936 in Lincoln Manor, Texas, Obediah 'Young' Jessie was a member of the Flairs, Hunters, and Coasters, as well as scoring a solo West Coast hit with his 1955 rocker "Mary Lou."
He was a Los Angeles high-school classmate of Richard "Louie Louie" Berry too !
Platters manager Buck Ram took over Jessie's career in time to pen his torrid 1956 rocker "Hit, Git & Split" under the sobriquet of Lynn Paul.
Well, thanks to our international Pete, go check his discography if you want some more !

Excellent choices, Rev. I Smell A Rat is a particular favourite and reminds me a lot of Bunker Hill. Wicked Drummer!!
