CUPID'S BOOGIE * LITTLE ESTHER AND MEL WALKER * SAVOY 750 * USA
Born in Esther Mae Jones in 1935, Little Esther was spotted by Herman Lubinsky of Savoy records at a talent show in Watts, where, at the tender age of thirteen, she had stole the show. She was paired with another new act of Lubinsky's The Four Robins on Double Crossing Blues, the first record to credit her, which was a smash hit, the energy and vitality of the precocious singer was irrepressible and the record (only one side was by her) still selling well a year later became the first 45 pressed up by the label. Released as the B side to an average love song Cupids Boogie is a humorous but hard driving Rhythm & Blues cut and was her third Savoy release - the second of her pairings with Mel Walker.
