Club Savoy

James David Walker Jr. (August 13, 1921 December 20, 2012), better known by his stage name Jimmy McCracklin, was an American pianist, vocalist, and songwriter. His style contained West Coast blues, Jump blues, and R&B. Over a career that spanned seven decades, he said he had written almost a thousand songs and had recorded hundreds of them. He joined the United States Navy in 1938, later settled in Richmond, California, and began playing at the local Club Savoy owned by his sister-in-law Willie Mae "Granny" Johnson He wrote Club Savoy in 1961.The second version was recorded by Rockin Louie and The Mamma Jammers. I could find no informaton on them, however I like their version better.
