James Wayne is one of those old obscure r&b cats who time has mostly forgotten. He had one big hit in 1951, “Tend To Your Business” but by the time ‘Agreeable Woman’ dropped in 1952 (Imperial 5166) the spotlight had shifted elsewhere.

This track was recorded at Cosimo’s old studio at 838 – 840 N. Rampart Street with a crack backup band of Lee Allen, Edward Frank, Justin Adams, and Frank Fields.
