NS565 Little Eddie Taylor [1967] - I Had A Good Time [Peacock 1949]

b/w:      Forgive One Mistake (official A side)
Label:     Peacock
Cat No:  1949
Year:      1967
Value:     £600

The rarest release on Peacock on the flip side of deep soul gem 'Forgive One Mistake'.  This is a fairly ordinary mid 60s track that just happens to have the right beat for the Northern scene.  It's not one that would set the world on fire to these ears!

There's a nice article about him over at Sir Shambling's Deep Soul Heaven. According to the article Swammp Dog (Jerry Williams) claims Littel Eddie is Johnnie Taylor's brother but Johnnie wouldn't acknowledge him! You can also hear the A side 'Forgive One Mistake' and his only other known release from around 1963 'Just The Way You Are' which is a bluesy doo wop outing on Tropical 101 b/w 'The State Song'.
