Mercy Dee Walton
One Room Country Shack and Other Struggling Blues CD

Mercy Dee Walton was a pianist, singer and songwriter, whose oeuvre encompassed Blues, Jump Blues and R&B.
Often billed on record as just Mercy Dee, he remains chiefly important for his US Top 10 R&B hits Lonesome Cabin Blues and One Room Country Shack.
A powerful body of work, this collection is a selection of popular sides and rarities, recorded between 1949 and 1955 for Spire, Imperial, Colony, Rhythm, Flair, and Specialty Records.
His 1955 Flair Records release Come Back Maybellene, an answer disc to Chuck Berry’s Maybellene is a popular record among specialist Rock 'n' Roll collectors.
He died of a cerebral haemorrhage in 1962, just a year after recording a fine comeback album Mercy Dee, for Arhoolie Records.
