Percy Mayfield is commonly described as 'The Poet Laureate of the Blues', by contemporary writers and historians and he enjoyed a string of hits on the Los Angeles based, Specialty label during the early '50s and then enjoyed a major renaissance as a songwriter in the '60s thanks to Ray Charles.
This superb set features all of his greatest recordings and contains the original versions of such well-known classics as "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "Strange Things Happening" and "The River's Invitation". This is the most complete collection of Percy Mayfield's work yet released and is an absolute must for all blues and R&B fans.
