The immortal Percy Mayfield tonight. Rightfully dubbed The Poet Of The Blues, Mayfield was not only a gifted and compelling singer, but he was also was one of the great Blues and Pop Music composers from the 1950’s writing a string of hits, not only for himself, but for Ray Charles among many others.

Tonight it’s one of his own singles – What A Fool I Was came out on Specialty Records in 1950 and climbed up the Billboard charts, topping at Number 8.

Definitely an artist you need to get familiar with if you aren’t already.

You kind of owe that to yourself this weekend.
