Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson 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.
This week, the "Juke In The Back" honors one of the greatest blues shouters of all-time, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson.  He burst on the scene in 1944 with a cover of the Joe Turner classic, "Cherry Red Blues" as the vocalist for the Cootie Williams Orchestra.  He remained with Cootie Williams until 1945, when Vinson cut out and formed his own orchestra.  He signed with Mercury and scored the biggest hit of his career in 1947 with "Old Maid Boogie" and "Kidney Stew Blues."  He entered the R&B charts one more time in 1949 with the sequel to "Cherry Red Blues" with "Somebody Done Stole My Cherry Red."
For those in the know, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson is an R&B, jazz and blues shoutin' treasure, but for those who missed the boat, he's forgotten.
