Little Mummy’s Lone Federal 45

This other one-off recording from 1957 – released on King subsidiary label, Federal – establishes a Cincinnati-New Orleans connection via musical artist, Little Mummy (i.e., Marvin Gauthreaux):

Where You At Jack” and its flip side “Oh Baby Please” were both recorded in New Orleans.

45Cat informs me that Marvin Gauthreaux also recorded as Phil Marvin on at least two singles for different Louisiana labels.

“Where You At Jack” included on a thoughtfully compiled double LP of King material – Teach Me to Monkey – released on Spanish label, Vampi Soul in 2010 and issued, thankfully, on Gusto here in the US.  In 2010, Vampi Soul would also reissue “Where You At Jack” as a King 7-inch backed with “That’s It Man” by The Valentines on the flip side.

  1. Hello! I’m not sure if I know you but Marvin Gauthreaux “Little Mummy “ was my Dad. I have been searching for his music for many years. Hearing this today was truly special. Do you happen to have any of his other music? If so I would love to have a copy or if you could share it I would truly appreciate it.

    Thank you,
    Shannon Gauthreaux Arnold
