Real name: Robert Higginbotham. Piano player from Ohio who moved to the east coast in the late fifties. Part of Titus Turner's band when introduced to Atlantic Records. Cut as a demo for them. Hard to believe but Atlantic didn't like it and sold it to Chess in Chicago. Chess released that demo on the spot.
