One of the strangest albums ever recorded by pianist/drummer Erroll Parker – mostly because it's got him singing on a number of tracks!

Prestige, 1969. Very Good- ... $4.99
A great little record – one of Houston's most successful for Prestige!

Houston PersonHouston Person '75 ... LP
Westbound, 1975. Very Good ... $4.99
Houston hits a funky groove for Westbound – not as hard, heavy, and Prestige-sounding as his work on the now-dead Eastbound label, but also not too bad either.

The title's a reference to the fact that the album's a long-overdue debut as a leader for pianist Willie Pickens – a player who was important in the Chicago scene for years, but had never made it into the studio until the late 80s.
