Oscar Perry made his debut recording in 1957, following it with releases on a variety of labels until landing on Huey P. Meaux's Crazy Cajun in the early '70s. In 1973 Oscar Perry scored a R&B top five hit as a songwriter when Bobby "Blue" Bland recorded his "This Time I'm Gone for Good". Bland cut several more Perry tunes over the next few years, including "When You Come to the End of Your Road", "Country Fool From the Sticks" and "If I Weren't a Gambler."
