Lovers of late 50's New Orleans Rock'n Roll should include this classic in their collection. Lee Allen was the man that played Sax for Little Richard, Fats Domino, Smiley Lewis, Shirley And Lee and Huey "Piano" Smith. His great talents are shown in this fabulous mix featuring "Walkin' with Mr. Lee" and "Tick-Tock"....It's a trip back to good time rock'n roll heaven.....

For some reason, so-called R&R instrumentals were never widely represented on the R&B singles charts. Oh, there were exceptions, like Bill Doggett & His Combo, but generally speaking the big names in R&R instrumentals such as Sil Austin, The Ventures, Johnny & The Hurricanes and The Champs, while having the odd tune make it to those charts, were much more evident on the Billboard Pop Top/Hot 100.

And that applies to tenor saxophonist Lee Francis Allen (born in Pittsburg, Kansas on July 2, 1927 - died in California on October 18, 1994 at age 67) whose only two nationally-charting singles only made it to the mid- and lower-regions of the Pop charts. Which is strange since the music of Lee Allen And His Band was every bit as appealing and compelling as that of Bill Doggett whose Combo boasted 9 Top 30 singles on the R&B listings in the same era. Certainly, his wailing sax was very much in evidence on R&B hits by such as Fats Domino, Lloyd Price and Little Richard.

Leading his own aggregation, he first scored nationally when the rollicking Walkin' With Mr. Lee peaked at # 54 Billboard Pop Tyop 100 in Jan-Feb 1958 as Ember 1027 b/w Promenade. Why this never rose higher can probably be attributed to the fact that Al Silver's New York City-based independent label Ember Records (he also ran Herald) simply did not have the same promotional clout as that enjoyed by the much larger King Records of Cincinnati which had been around since 1943 and which handled Bill Doggett's material. Consequently, the best the otherwise great Tic Toc could do was a # 92 later that September as Ember 1039 b/w Chuggin'.

All four sides were then included in his only Ember LP - "Walkin' With Mr. Lee" (Ember ELP-200) which also came out in 1958 containing: A1. Walkin' With Mr Lee (2:20); A2.

One disc,28 minutes approximately,good clean sound. This is a curious album. Having heard Allen on many tracks recorded in the fifties,I knew of his talent on the tenor sax,but had never heard this album. Yes,it's short,but it has a curious effect on the listener. It's a bit like going back in time when juke boxes were where you heard the latest "sounds". Allen's group consisted of himself with organ,piano,guitarists-banjo(!) player,plus bass and drums. Most listeners will know of Allen because he played on a lot of Little Richards' hits,plus many more out of the New Orleans area. This music is best described as "jump blues"-small groups with the above instrumentation. The only real "hit" record here is WALKIN' WITH MR.LEE,a catchy number that probably sounded great either on the car radio or on a juke box. It's interesting that this hit record was thought up on the spur of the moment in the studio. All the tracks are similar, so if you like one you will like them all. While this is something that won't grab you by the throat,it does sneak up on you and puts a smile on your face. As I said-curiously enjoyable.
