Two unissued sides from New Orleans bluesman Sugarboy Crawford here, originally recorded for Checker. And what can we say about "Watch Her, Whip Her," except that it may just be the least-PC R 'n' B side you've ever encountered. Lyrically, the song is clearly a relic from a whole other era. Its take on the domestic violence theme is difficult to really fathom in this more enlightened era. Regardless, the music and playing is first-rate on both sides, with a top notch N'awlins ensemble underpinning both tracks with a clattering, down-home rumba.
