SPONTANEOUS LUNACY VERDICT 8/10
---------------
Recorded in Houston TX. The piano player is someone named Willie
Johnson. He's no Fats Domino, but he's very good. This is not an 8 for
me, it's a 7 because the tenor sax break is too frantic for me.
Nevertheless a rousing, enjoyable record.

Oh, BTW, the Blues Discography says Peppermint Harris's real name was
Harrison Nelson. On his first record he was billed as Peppermint
Nelson. Apparently he didn't play an instrument, just sang, so I don't
know who the guy-with-guitar pictured in the video is.

I'm beginning to wonder if the $129 I spent on that book was worth it.

I'll go with Sampson and give it an 8. I've never heard a sax break that I considered too frantic--unless we're talking about Free Jazz, which I never do.

I have Ed Wiley playing tenor and Henry Hayes alto on this session

It's one of his better efforts but got missed in the 1950 Singles
Battle

Its a 7 for me too

I don't perceive the sax break to be 'frantic', more likely the piano.

YT auto chose this as the next link to play - it's great, it's 'rousing'!
note the background guitar:

Peppermint Harris - Need Your Lovin' [{RCA}X 0142] - 1955


(next, YT chose this great collection of r&b, "Crazy Juke Joint Blues":
