BIG DADDY SIMPSON / MELVIN SIMPSON





SINGLES

CHIEF 7018 MELVIN SIMPSON I Love My Baby / Try And Understand1960 US
M-PAC! 7224 BIG DADDY SIMPSON You Don't Believe A Word I Say / What Can I Do1965 US
M-PAC! 7226  BIG DADDY SIMPSON  Give Me Back My Ring / Let Your Hair Down Baby  7/1965 US 

Note: According to several online sources, Big Daddy Simpson's real name was Marcellus Simpson, and Melvin Simpson, credited as a co-writer on both of his M-Pac! singles, would have actually been his son. However, e.g. The Blues Discography 1943-1970 by Les Fancourt & Bob McGrath identifies Bid Daddy and Melvin as a same person, and Marcellus Simpson as a duet vocalist on M-Pac! 7226.
