But "Harlem Shuffle" was Wayne's first hit to make Billboard's 'Hot 100'. One his later hits was 'Goin' Back To Miami' and "The Blues Brothers" patterned a lot of their act on Wayne's personna and show. I interviewed Wayne and saw his fantastic show in 1971 when I was at KAAY Radio/Little Rock. Then hooked up with him again in 1973 when I was at WDRQ Radio/Detroit and he was playing there. A generous and talented performer, he is now a Minister in Florida and has been since about 1981.
Cochran’s showmanship never translated into hit records, but his recordings for Mercury, Chess and King are compelling glimpses of the wild style that wowed audiences in the latter half of the 60s. Goin’ Back To Miami collects the choicest sides he cut in the R&B style. Disc One features prime cuts from his 1968 album for Chess, which was recorded in part at Fame in Muscle Shoals and saw him enter country soul territory with tracks such as Eddie Hinton’s ‘Big City Woman’. For the most part, he stuck with the bluesier material he understood best, although he flirted with psychedelic rock.
