Richard Stamz was a colourful Chicago R&B and soul DJ who operated throughout the 50s and 60s. He was a slick jive-talker who hosted a groundbreaking black TV show in the city in 1956. He took over the Cobra /Artistic/Abco studio around 1960; this also included the ownership of the owner's active Paso label which he continued to run alongside his own Foxy operation. Bluesman Harold Burrage was already at Paso and he and Richard Stamz began to work closely together with Burrage recording, composing songs, playing sessions and even voicing ads for Stamz's radio show. His three 45s for the two labels are superb examples of the early 60s where the blues was beginning to move towards soul. Burrage would eventually do this completely at M-Pac. The extremely rare original version of Betty Everett's 'Please Love Me' is featured here which will be of great interest to New Breed R&B fans, as will many of the tracks on these largely uncharted labels.
