"She Likes To Boogie Real Low" is a Frankie's version of a song that Louis Jordan did.  Sims omits the bridge and lets the guitar answer the vocal instead of singing the lines.
BLUE LIGHT BOOGIE
(Robinson)
I'm of on a tagent as usual, Magic Sam also did a version of Blue Light Boogei in 1961. The talented Jessie Mae Robinson wrote the song and many other well known R&B hits too. She died in 1966 aged 47. In the 80s Juke Blues magazine devoted most of an issue to her life and achievements.

You can hear Magic Sam's version (entire thing) on http://lala.com  - similar to Louie Jordan's version.  It's a great song and Frankie Sims does a credible job of it given he has no horns or piano (I think no piano).

Hi all,
Frankie Lee Sims recorded "Rhumba My Boogie" at his February 5, 1954 session in Dallas, accompanied by piano, bass and drums, in addition to his own guitar.  Though this track has had some uncharitable reviews elsewhere, it is dangerously catchy, and the drummer, in particular, really shines.  Despite the title, Frankie Lee clearly says "rumble".

   You know, it's south of the border, down Mexico way
   There was a picture for Spanish lace
   I had no dinerda for my mujerda
   But-a my sensarita esta huendo for me

   But amigo catch-a loco he's drinkin' too much vino
   South of the border down on Mexico

   SOLO

   I tell you I love you, sensarita, I'll tell you
   South of that border, down on Mexico way
   We'll do the rumble boogie, a-to the break of day
   Tell me south of the border, down Mexico way

   SOLO

   I love my baby, she don't like-a me
   But you leave me, sensarita, you just wait and see

All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
Frakie Lee Sims recorded "No Good Woman" (which should have been titled "No-Good Woman") at his May 14, 1953 session in Dallas.  He was joined by a harmonica player for this cut who didn't add a lot to Frankie Lee's sound.  The ensemble has a looser than usual sound on this number, and not in a way that benefits the music.  Frankie Lee delivers a very strong vocal, as usual.

   Well, goodbye ol' no-good woman, you don't mean one man no good
   Yeah, goodbye ol' no-good woman, you don't mean one man no good
   Yeah, but it all your fault, baby, not doin' the things you should

   SOLO

   I don't want no woman that want every man she sees
   Yeah, I don't want no woman that want every man she sees
   Man, get a woman like that, buddy, she don't want me

   Get you a nickel and a dime in the morning, you won't even wash and iron
   Give you a nickel a dime in the morning, she won't even wash and iron
   She don't want to do nothin', stay in the street, boy, all the time

All best,
Johnm
