“The Frisco singers” released on US Chess 2039 in 1969 is now known to have been Perk Badger, who also recorded under the name of Mr. Percolator, and sometimes as “The Soul Percolator”. Pearlstine “Perk” Badger was born on February 12th 1940, and sadly died in June 1996.

He continued to record through the 1960s to the 1980s but without national success, and was unaware of the interest abroad in his recordings, which is a shame. He also sang with gospel groups and is closely associated with gospel singer Willie Walters.
