I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

A Forgotten Lover - Virgil Griffin and Rythm Kings

Virgil Griffin & The Rhythm Kings released these two 45s on Reginald in the late 60s. Curiously, If You Can’t Go & I’m On My Way are the same recording with different titles, a great slice of funky soul. The other two songs are ballads, A Forgotten Lover is a cool spooky sounding track but Love Will Never Die is a bit more of pop sounding ballad. Hines takes sole credit for the songwriting on 1402 but Griffin gets shared credit on 1403. 1402 has the Muscadine St. address but 1403 has the Nelson St. address. The Rhythm Kings also backed up The Cherries on their Big Beat 45 & Ervin Little on Hines. Virgil Griffin has a later 45 on Shout and another much rarer one on GRM.I don't know a lot about Virgil...but I know what I like.
