"Stop" b/w "I Got Loaded"

A 2 track new orleans r&b single (4m 55s) — released October 16th 2015 on Rocafort Records

While working on this release, we've just found out about the passing of legendary R&B and Soul man Camille "Little" Bob. This piece of vinyl which reunites two hits from his rare 45s is dedicated to his family.

Known as Little Bob, Camille Bob was born in 1937 in Arnaudville, rural Lousiana. As a drummer and/or singer he recorded one album and numerous singles for record labels such as Goldband, Jin and La Louisianne. It was with the latter that the two tracks were recorded, now reissued on Rocafort. On the "A" side we have "Stop" recorded in 1969, first done by Howard Tate. For us, it's a rare case of the cover version surpassing the original. The "B" side features his most well-known track, "I Got Loaded", an R'n'B hit recorded in 1965 and later made popular by Los Lobos. A few days before Camille Bob's death on 6th July 2015, his son Ronald told us where the inspiration for the hit came from:

The inspiration for "I Got Loaded" was actually from Bob's mother. The band would meet up at his mother's house to catch the band's bus for gigs that night. She would sit on her porch people watching along with my grandfather in her rocking chair, smoking a pipe and drinking wine until she started feeling alright. She spoke Creole and after a few drinks of wine, looking sleepy eyed she would often ask her husband: "Cozo Ou ma pipe? His response would be:"Damit woman, your pipe is in your mouth!"

‘I Got Loaded’ is one of the all-time great party platters, and one of my personal favorites. - Larry Grogan Funky16corners
