Release date 2021 Born Harrison Nelson, in Texarcana, Texas, in 1925, Peppermint Harris was a jump blues and R&B singer and guitarist, who originally recorded in Houston in 1948 as Peppermint Nelson, but acquired his new name by accident when Bob Shad of Sittin’ In With Records, forgot his name when releasing his first record and got it wrong on the label – the record was a hit and the die was cast. Over subsequent years he recorded for a variety of labels, registering his big career hit in 1951 for the Modern label with the R&B No. 1 “I Got Loaded”. This 52-track 2-CD set comprises most of his A & B sides on the Gold Star, Sittin’ In With, Aladdin, Modern, Cash, X, Combo, Dart and Duke labels from this era, including performances as Peppermint Nelson, Peppermint Harris and Peppermint Harris With The Maxwell Davis All-Stars. It features his R &B No. 1 hit “I Gor Loaded” and his No. 4 hit “Raining In My Heart”. His music ranges across the spectrum of the typical electric blues of these years, with a significant proportion of his material reflecting the advent of rock ‘n’ roll in the pop charts during this time. It represents a pretty thorough cross-section of his releases from what was the primary decade and more of his career.
