Mose Allison - "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me"

Here is the B side to Mose Allison's "The Seventh Son", which I posted about a year ago.
Prestige Records tried to market Allison as a pop star, but Columbia Records and later Atlantic Records tried to market him as a blues artist. Because he sang blues, Jet magazine thought that he was black and wanted to interview him. I thought he was too when I first heard him as a kid.
Mose is still with us and his March 2010 album, The Way of the World, "marked his return to the recording studio after a 12-year absence."
