People are talking

Rollee McGill was a Philadelphia sax player in the 50's. You've heard him, he plays the great solo on "Get A Job" by The Silhouettes. This 45 (part 2 on the flip) came out in 1957 on Kaiser records, a label owned by a Philadelphia DJ named Kae Williams. It was a regional hit and Cameo re-released the record nationally but it didn't catch on.

There is a Bear Family compilation of Rollee's many singles called RHYTHM ROCKIN' BLUES. It's worth getting. McGill died in 2000, he was 68.

I dug this 45 out of a box full of tools at a flea market in Bristol, TN.
