JOSEPH CHARLES AUGUSTUS, from New Orleans - known as 'GOOGLE EYES', as he had an enthusiastic eye for the ladies - was a popular Blues singer between the late 40s and early 60s.

He recorded prolifically between 1949-61, for ten different record labels, including Coleman, Columbia, OKeh, DeLuxe, Duke and Instant.

Although he never quite registered a national hit, Joe enjoyed significant regional successes with sides like 'Poppa Stoppa's Be Bop Blues', 'No Wine, No Women', 'Rock My Soul', 'Oh What A Fool' and 'Lead Us On' (the latter two recorded with The Johnny Otis Band), and was also a hugely popular live performer.
