I'm looking for information about when Johnny Otis & Preston Love wrote this song and/or when it was recorded with Little Esther singing the lyrics with (I think) the Otis Band. I'm pretty sure it was late '40's or early 50's, but can't seem to turn up anything specific. I found it on compilation albums, but am having trouble finding the original album.

Thanks.

Aged and Mellow Blues
by Johnny Otis & Preston Love

I've got a strange philosophy
Nothing here appeals to me
I like my men like I like my whiskey
Mmm, aged and mellow

Some girls just can't seem to see
Why these little young cats ain't moving me
But I like my men like I like my whiskey
Mmm, aged and mellow

There's nothing a greenhorm can do for me
Case my older daddy suits me to a T
Now I like my men like I like my whiskey
Ooh, aged and mellow

Now listen youngster, be on your way
Don't bother me 'til a later day
I like my men like I like my whiskey
Mmm, aged and mellow

Junior may be young and strong, girl
But I'll take grandpa cause he's had it longer
I like my men like I like my whiskey
Hah, aged and mellow

It was a 45, Federal 12078, "Little Esther Aged And Mellow/Bring My Lovin' Back To Me"         from 1952. Produced by Johnny Otis. I was not able to find any indication that it was released on an LP at that time, though obviously, it released many times in subsequent years.
