From the mid 1940s onwards, McVea led one of the coolest of all R&B bands of the era, scoring a massive hit with his now-classic (and the best remembered) version of "Open The Door Richard". He was with Combo as an artist for little more than a year but his sessions for the label produced some of the rockin'-est small group R &B you'll ever hear. McVea's own saxophone instrumental prowess is well complemented by the vocals of his wife Louise Beatty and band members Rudy Pitts, Al Smith, Christine Chatman and vocal group the Savoys. 23 tracks including: Trying To Tell Ya, Fiddle Sticks, Hoo Doo You Baby, Ube Dubie, Wino, Chop Chop Boom, Yaka Boo, Gaucho Hop.
