Ervin Little

Hines  1711 – She’s Heaven To Me /I’m Running A Losing Race

Hines 1712 – Love Came To Me/Teach Me How To Boogaloo

Ervin Little is another mystery artist, most likely from St Petersburg, FL, despite releasing these two fine 45s nothing else is known of him.  I believe these recordings are from when operations were still based in Greenville & may have been recorded either there or in New Orleans.  Produced by Hines for Lynn’s Productions they also see Hines take half the songwriting & the publishing as an exchange for financing the records.  The first 45 has Little backed by the Rhythm Kings, as on the Virgil Griffin and The Cherries 45s, so it may be from a similar time period to those records.  If anyone has any info on Ervin Little please get in touch.
