Wilmar Walker

PHILIPS 40030This is the only 45 I can find by the obscure Wilmar Walker, but it is a good one and certainly deserves its place in these pages. "Stompin' roaches" is not only a good idea but a strong uptempo black rocker, but the better of the two is the downtempo blues ballad ListenSomebody will. I love the gospel chorus in the background and Walker's very grown up baritone vocal - could this whole 45 including Walker be a gospel quartet moonlighting? Tasteful small band backing on this Chicago recording.
