Description



Blues and boogie-woogie pianist Robert McCoy, recorded by Patrick Cather, circa 1962-1963, Birmingham, Alabama.

Cather produced, on his Vulcan / Vulkan Records label, two albums by McCoy -- Barrel House Blues and Jook Piano (1962) and Blues and Boogie Classics (1963) -- and, on the Soul-O imprint, two 45 RPM singles by Robert McCoy and the Five Sins.
