Thing Of The Past

Bit of a mystery man here ... minimal, inaccurate and/or conflicting information is all you will likely find online for Mr. Joe Perkins. However, undeniably, his handful of 60s contributions are absolute stunners in the deep soul department! His recording stints were both brief and sporadic.


Debuting in 1957 with 2 humdinging R&B 45s on King Records, re-surfacing in 1961 with a bluesy and booming single on Sampton Records. In the mid 60s he cut a rare 45 for Taurus Records, in 1968 one for Nugget Records, in 1970 one for Chris Records, in 1972 one for Plush Records and a final 45 for Bluff City in 1974. An albeit short list of offerings but fairly impressive nonetheless.

Thing Of The Past collects these complete recordings. All files chronicled, cleanly tagged and mp3 @ 320kbs. Thanks to original uploaders (plus Sir Shambling and Red Kelly for helping clarify release info), enjoy.
