Wade Flemons was a splendid but underrated R&B/soul singer and pianist, who made a brief impact on record charts in the late 1950s and early 1960s. In spite of several 7” records for different labels, he made Bonly one album throughout his career. This essential release presents his complete LP, Wade Flemons, which was originally issued by Vee Jay Records in 1960 (when he was at the peak of his success). The 12 songs contained on the long-unavailable album mark the best introduction into this soulman’s mastery and overlooked legacy. Among them, the self-penned “My Baby Likes to Rock,” and the soulful, neo- Latin/calypso beat “Here I Stand,” remain timeless, irresistible staples. In addition to the original LP, this remastered collector’s CD contains 16 bonus tracks – including forgotten hits and hard-to-find sides from the same period.
