Oscar Toney Jr

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, October 1971

King arrives for his annual tour. Nowadays, though, it is a comment that applies to Oscar Toney Jr., who recently completed his second British tour in five months despite having been three years nearly without a record release in this country.
