Big Bowl Of Soul

The Huntsmen

Big Bowl Of Soul

Label : PAM (?)

Instrumental original. The flip is "Fever" comped on "Songs The Cramps Taught Us"  (it's on YouTube)
Date is generally given as 1961, but I am not quite sure and would rather say mid-sixties?

The Huntsmen came out of Millikan High School in Long Beach, and were friends with the Emperors and also likely the Royal Knights.  The Huntsmen had two singles on the Pam label in the early ’60s:

Pam 1001/1002: “Send Me Some Lovin'” / “Wishbone”
Pam 1003/1004: “Fever” / “Big Bowl of Soul”

“Wishbone” and “Big Bowl of Soul” are band originals.

Jim Bradshaw – lead guitar and lead vocals
Jerry Christensen – drums
Mick Lorito – rhythm guitar
Bill McKinney
Don Zabish  

Jim Bradshaw had a long career in music after the Huntsmen, including the Disciples of Soul, and stints with Johnny Otis, Shuggie Otis, Eddie Vinson, Taj Mahal, Etta James, Junior Wells, and Henry Vestine of Canned Heat.  James Bradshaw, 55, bled to death one Saturday in 2003 after cutting himself while trying to enter his Eugene (Oregon) home through a window.
