Little Caesar this week on The Juke In The Back

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.
Today Harry “Little” Caesar is best remembered as an actor from movies and TV and the voice behind 1952’s “Goodbye Baby,” one of the strangest RB hits of all-time. But the story of Little Caesar and his slow rise to fame is one of American folklore. He was raised by his steel working father after his mother died before his first birthday. While working various jobs to help support his family, Caesar got into trouble and spent six months in jail. After getting out of the military, he found himself on the West Coast with a budding musical career. He practically invented the story song, complete with acting between him and his platter co-star “Rusty” Russell. “Goodbye Baby” may have been his only national hit, topping out at #5, but there is so much more to Little Caesar and this week Matt The Cat is proud to bring this underrated RB singer into the spotlight. We’ll dig on his recorded output for John Dolphin’s Recorded In Hollywood Label, RPM Records and Big Town Records from 1952-53 on the “Juke In The Back.”
