If you've heard Esquerita's psychotic recordings for Capitol (1958-59), you probably already know what to expect whenever his name is dropped. If you haven't ... well, mere words won't tell you. Some of this live performance cut in 1965 shows what Esquerita could do when the mood hit, particularly on a stomper like "Sock It To Me Baby". Little Richard introduces the living pompadour, and after the aforementioned ‘Sock It ...’, Esquerita barrels through a broad array of styles, as evidenced by the titles: Mississippi God-Damn, Wig-Wearin' Baby, What's Wrong With You, and his classic At The Dew Drop Inn. Another slice of undeservedly obscure but great rock 'n' roll.
