Robert McCoy (11 Tracks)


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.

The Southern Music Research Center is proud to present the following previously unreleased recordings from the same era, courtesy Patrick Cather.
