"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, lovers of blues and soul music
and tourists, it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

Watson recorded three albums and some singles for Okeh in the mid-'60s.
 And listeners who are surprised at the many "faces" of Watson will 
find the sides on BEST OF THE OKEH YEARS to be a missing link of sorts.
 While reminiscent of the blues structures of his earlier recordings,
 Watson's Okeh material is up-tempo and funky with an ear toward
 mainstream accessibility ("Nobody" and "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" made 
the R&B charts). It's fun, energetic music, with plenty of Watson's 
trademark pyrotechnic guitar to satisfy six-string enthusiasts. 

Producer Doug Wygal (Reissue)
