Young Jessie - Hit, Git & Split lp (Ace, UK)


This is where Young (Obediah) Jessie came in, and they don’t come much more sly and wicked than him. From the hipster slang of the title track, to the tale of Mary Lou who “clipped the judge just to pay her bail”, this ain’t kids’ stuff. Hence in 1982 Ray Topping and Ted Carroll assembled “Hit, Git & Split”, the first Young Jessie LP dedicated entirely to his records and drawn from the Modern label where he waxed through the mid-50s. This is prime Los Angeles R&B at its finest, hip but not too slick and straight off the street. Most of the material is written by him, with a few sides penned by those masters of hip, Leiber & Stoller, and the whole thing goes off with a swing.
