Post Doggett

Hank Marr joined King records in 1961 as a replacement for Bill Doggett. The Greasy Spoon, released in 1964, filled the B3 void left after Doggett's departure.

Chicken Fat

When I started my other blog The Magnetic Brain I had every intention of covering a broad selection of my interests. Over time, however, The Magnetic Brain has evolved into an automotive boneyard. Sidewindin' is an opportunity for me to post a variety of music that I enjoy and hopefully others will too.

Mississippi born Mel Brown played with a who's who of the R & B world before recording his 1967 debut album Chicken Fat on Impulse. Mel blurs the line between blues, jazz and funk on this one.
