Something of a mystery man who recorded a session for Peacock Records at the dawn of the 1950’s, from which only one single was released. Two others were scheduled and even received release numbers but when the first failed to sell it’s likely they were shelved.

R.B. Thibadeaux’s surname would suggest he could’ve been from Louisiana and his music contains regional flavors that might support that, but he was also said to have been a friend or protege of Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Peacock’s top artist and a Houston native.

Whatever the case, Thibadeaux benefited from Peacock’s early open door policy when starting out and in need of artists. Once he failed to deliver any sales he was dropped from the roster and not heard from again.
R. B. THIBADEUX DISCOGRAPHY (Records Reviewed To Date On Spontaneous Lunacy):

(Peacock 1513; February, 1950)
A generic song served up by an enthusiastic but under-powered Thibadeux and further hampered by the uneven backing of his musicians… a few good lines set the required attitude but nobody involved has the ability to elevate it beyond mediocrity. (3)
