I really enjoy your site! I work with Living Blues magazine, and was putting together a caption for Larry Milton. Do you know how long he's been on the scene, and which labels that he's recorded for?

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Larry’s definitely an “underground” artist. Don’t think he’s recorded a solo album. If so, it’s a long time ago-—long enough ago for me to forget. He has strong connections in Jackson, and if you want to pursue your search I’d start with the staff at radio station WMPR, starting with Wanda Evers. DJ’s Ragman, Handyman, or Cadillac Zack might know more.

Thanks for the compliment!

Daddy B. Nice notes:

I whipped this reply back to the reader at a point when I was pressed for time. Subsequently, I looked a little more into Larry Milton's presence (or lack thereof) on YouTube and was surprised to find a lot of material and information on the artist posted in the last couple of years.

Here are Daddy B. Nice's most important entries historically, as traced through the Comprehensive Index, along with relevant YouTube links and credits previously unpublished.

12. "Back In Love Again"--Larry Milton

Lush, romantic, yet its driving beat carries you along like a swiftly-moving river.

DBN notes: The antecedents for "Back In Love Again" (in terms of tempo, rhythm track, and background instrumentation) are Jesse Graham's "Mr. Mailman" and "Think Of My Baby." Also note the arranging duties by Morris J. Williams, the longtime Ecko Records-affiliated writer/producer.

FEBRUARY 2010....

1. "Knock My Boots"------------Larry Milton

After all the year-end hoopla of awards and listening to last year's records over and over again, I was craving something original, a fresh sound to usher in the new year. This is it. Based on the "Slow Roll It" melody, and taken to new heights by a much-deserving artist best-known for the song "Back In Love Again."

4. "Knock My Boots"--------------Larry Milton

Who would have imagined that a "Slow Roll It" knock-off (and an underground hit at that) could make you forget the Love Doctor's star-crossed classic? In the space of four atmosphere-packed minutes Larry Milton goes from journeyman to genius.

"Knock My Boots"

In addition, YouTube also has a surprising number of Larry Milton singles that never charted or received air play, published and posted by Knock On Wood Records, including some live appearances.
