Performer Notes
  • Includes liner notes by Jim Dawson.
  • COME ON is a retrospective of the Los Angeles-based Mambo and Vita record labels, around 1955-56. Willie Egan appears as the primary performer or a sideman on all these recordings.
  • The R&B boogie pianist waxed some rip-roaring rockers for the tiny Los Angeles-based Vita and Mambo logos during the mid-'50s. Fourteen of his best are collected here for a long-overdue airing. This guy deserved a lot more respect than he got, judging from the jumping Louisiana-tinged "Wow Wow," "Come On," and "She's Gone Away, But..." Also aboard: 11 more obscure goodies from the same labels' vaults, notably four tracks by Harmonica Slim (including "Drop Anchor") and Big Boy Groves' lament "You Can't Beat the Horses." ~ Bill Dahl
Professional Reviews
Living Blues (9-10/94, p.89) - "...For the most part, this is driving, hard-rocking music that recalls such contemporaries as Fats Domino...and Guitar Slim....[Willie Egan] was a first rate performer who never managed to be in the right place at the right time....Egan's excellence makes this an album worth buying..."
