I Can't Understand It - Willie Egans

As it says in this Obituary Krazy Kat released a bootleg LP of Willie Egans 50s material in 1982 and it caused quite a stir. Two respected collectors, Jim Raper and Pete Bowen, used to say "Stu. You've got no money. How can you think of collecting? Just buy the best stuff!" And one week they were telling me about this new LP release. "Rock'n'Roll Fever" "Well worth buying", they said. And it was.

So many people thought so, that Willie Egans was searched out, and brought to England to gig, recording a new album and a live concert (did that ever get released?) so the bootleg was good for him.

From that Krazy kat LP, some storming Louisiana R'n'B. Fortunately for you the material is available again on Signature:
Buy It Here and read their Willie Egans Bio.
