The Matta Baby

After a three-year stint in the service, Talbert returned to Chicago in '62, eventually allying with Pegue for a series of sessions. Pegue and Talbert wrote and produced the 1967 two-sider "Do The Pearl, Girl," which came out on Penny but was recorded at Chess and sports Chess master numbers; it's credited playfully to the "Matta Baby."
