Jimmy Dee & The Offbeats

Truly a rock and roll curiosity, little seems to be known about Jimmy Dee, let alone the Offbeats. A search on Amazon yields one CD called Time Life The Rock 'N' Roll Era Lost Treasures II, which has only the one track (by Jimmy Dee), which is Henrietta. I wish I remember where I picked this up…

Jimmy Dee & The Offbeats

Henrietta – Chugging sax, New Orleans rhythm, backwoods spirit, this is what happens when rock and roll goes over the top. Sounds like a sidways Lucille. A kind of hit in the winter of 1957 / 1958.
