My Next Door Neighbour
They say if you’re gonna get good, start early and Jerry ‘Boogie’ McCain was certainly no slouch, reportedly starting on his harp at the tender age of five. My Next Door Neighbour from Excello in 1955 is a quick-talking blast, detailing the litany of favours his neighbour asks of him. No harp in it, though, surprisingly. The flip is from the same period and ramps up the pace and intensity. On this one, we do get to hear the man blowing. Boogie, chillun.
