Jim LoweEsqueritaEskew Reeder is not well known to your average music fan. Recording as Esquerita, he was a major influence on Little Richard with his wild, screaming, racy songs. He was Little Richard before Little Richard was Little Richard. Esquerita never made the charts himself but did write “Green Door,” a number one hit in 1956 on Dot records for Jim Lowe, which can get you $25.00. In 1959 Capitol records released the album “Esquerita.” It’s worth up to $500.00 today. FOR BIG SAVINGS ON OUR RECORD GUIDES, CLICK ON “MIGHTY JOHN’S DISCOUNT PACKAGES” IN THE YELLOW STRIP ABOVE.
