    Biography :

    Bandera was a small Chicago label launched by Vi Muszynski, and her son Bernie Harville, with money Muszynski made off one of her biggest discoveries, the Impressions. The label released a variety of music in the late '50s and early '60s, from hillbilly and rock, to blues and gospel.

    Vi Muszynski                                                                                                                                                

    Bobby Davis and The Big "3" Trio recorded the song "One Love Have I" and "She's A Problem" in two different styles: once as a blues and once as a Rhythm'blues / Doo wop, but the blues' version were previously unissued track, and only the Rhythm'blues / Doo wop tracks are released on Bandera 2508. This leave another question : were the Big"3" trio the vocal group? Probably not : Jody "Guitar" Williams played just that, Bob Walton played bass and Loretta Taylor Played Drums.

    Davis started his career as bassist with ZuZu Bollin, moving on to tour as one of Rosco Gordon's ensemble, before joining up with Albert Collins in Houston touring with him as either drummer or bassist. At The tail end of the 50s he pitched up in Chicago and formed his band. Bobby Davis and The Big "3" Trio had one earlier release on bandera 2505 which coupled the Chicago blues sides "I Was Wrong" and "Hype You Into Sellin'". Bobby Davis would go on to record for M-pac, Firma and as Bobby Cool for Expo
