Out West Blues Pt. 4 – Steppin' Up In Class: Jimmy McCracklin and Percy Mayfield

Today we spotlight two key figures of the post-war West coast scene, Jimmy McCracklin and his contemporary, singer Percy Mayfield. Jimmy McCracklin led one of the toughest, hardest rocking blues bands on the West Coast. It's not hard to see why Percy Mayfield has been so frequently covered and so often mentioned with admiration among his fellow blues singers; he was a master of the moody blues ballad, he had flawless timing and phrasing and as a writer his songs had a frank, penetrating insight into the dark, complex side of the human condition.
