Sonny Hines on Esta 790/791

Sonny Hines with (Tommy Wills) Orchestra
ESTA 790/791 - 1958
CP-1553 - I'm Glad You're Jealous Of Me (R & B)
CP-1554 - This Morning (Uptempo Blues)

Great tunes by a very young Sonny Hines (possible his first recording) on Estelle (Eve) Dodds very collectible ESTA label. The ESTA label was located in Hamilton, Ohio - just up the road from Cincinnati and was one of the earliest to use RITE's custom pressing service. Sonny later recorded for Tommy Wills' Airtown, Terry and Gregory labels and has some desirable soul recordings.
