Folkways FJ2865 – Roots: The Rock & Roll Sound Of Louisiana & Mississippi LP – Boss Walk
The Perails were a New Orleans based group who were around in the early days of Reginald/Lynn’s. The Odex 45 would have been right after the Barbara Jean 45 and as we can see from that and the Boss Walk 45 Allen Orange is listed as a composer. The Odex 45 Billboard listing also mentions Orange’s publishing company so it’s a safe bet he had a hand in that too. Both the Barbara Jean & The Perails 45s on Odex are extremely rare. Boss Walk saw 45 release on the Nashville based Todd label and I wonder if this was through Allen Orange’s move to Nashville or through Hines’ travels. Boss Walk appears as the last track on the Folkways LP.
