Correction (Thanks Steve) :

The two records below were originally (but erroneously) included in the Bob-O-Link label discography (these records are listed in my copy of the McGrath R&B Indies discography, first edition).

They were issued actually on the Boogie label
and there is no relation to Norty Beckman.

101 Little Arthur Mathews & Joe Usury band
Now you Got To Go
Let's Do The Slop

102 Jimmy Gresham & Joe Usury band
Love and Devotion
Good Rollin'

  1. Thanks for linking to my blog at

    BTW, there's a large Bob-O-Link (Zenith, Lyric, etc.) & Norty's back-story; you've mixed in 45s on Boogie (Jimmy Gresham & Little Joe Mathews) with Bob-O-Link, entirely different labels.

    Have a lot of Mel Williams, but not "Burn Baby Burn" - wow. Have Harmad 104, which was always a mystery label to me, so thanks for that. Would like more info. on Bobby Jenkins on Vistone.
