A Bit of Soul (aka Blues Hangover)

Album 1953 - 1960 Pure

Single (A): Atlantic 2094, February 1961, b/w Early In The Morning.
Compilation album: Pure Genius: The Complete Atlantic Recordings [“Remastered LP version”], Atlantic, 2005 (1952-1959).

Recorded in Miami on 23 April 1955 with Joe Bridgewater, Riley Webb – tp; David Newman – as, bs; Don Wilkerson – ts; William Peebles – ds; Roosevelt Sheffield – b.

The erroneous title A Bit Of Soul and Ray’s authorship were probably, ignorantly, attributed to this Lloyd Glenn tune by the people at Atlantic.

In a 1968 concert souvenir booklet this tune was longlisted as being part of the band’s live repertoire.
