Here’s an overview of the career of organist Bill Doggett that’s a bit different. Most reissues in the CD era have almost entirely focused on his time with King Records. He was with the label in three periods, the 50s and early 60s, and then again in the 70s when he was recording funkier material. It is the period from the early 60s after his first tenure with King records that has been ignored until now.

    Thanks for this Green, another record from my youth. Tracks 14-24 are from Doggett’s first Warner Bros album – “3046 people danced until 3 a.m.”. They pretended it was a live album, but it’s studio recordings with fake crowd noises. “Tom Cat” is the standout track with great solos from Clifford Scott on tenor and Billy Butler guitar. In fact it sounds like two takes of the same tune, stitched together to bring the album up to length. Record companies, eh?
