NS564 Bud Harper [1964] - Wherever You Were [Peacock 1932]

b/w:         Let It Rain
Format:  45
Label:     Peacock
Cat No:  1932
Year:      1964
Value:    $192

The first of two 45s from Bud Harper issued on the Peacock label between 1964 and 1965 that were played on the scene. 'Wherever You Are' is a perennial favourite which still gets plays out to this day especially with the emergence of more R&B flavoured sounds hitting the turntables in recent years.  

There is a fabulous article on Peacock records by Dave Rimmer which includes a discography over at soulfulkindamusic Peacock

The later release 'Mr. Soul' is in the same R&B vein.  It gained a UK release in 1965 on Vocalion VP 9252 b/w 'Let Me Love You'.

Bud had another release 'This Woman I Love' b/w 'Down The Aisle' on Texas label Sarg 196 Texas Soul Recordings
It sounds a lot earlier than his Peacock outings.
