In the 50s ~ Let's Have A Party - Amos Milburn

In the 50s ~ Let's Have A Party
Amos Milburn an almost forgotten giant, with a decade of solid hits to his name. His cover of Will Bradley's 'Down the Road Apiece' (1947), an early jump blues with a rocking Texas boogie beat that bordered on rock, was just one of his tunes ahead of its time. However, none really caught on until 1949 when seven of his singles got the attention of the R&B audience: 'Hold Me Baby' and 'Chicken Shack Boogie' landed numbers eight and nine on Billboard's survey of 1949's R&B Bestsellers. He became one of the leading performers on the Central Avenue scene. It was the rise of the very Rock n Roll which he had inspired which changed radio enough to make him passe in the later 1950s, and despite some amazing sides, and deals with Johnny Otis and even Motown, this giant had had his day. Here though are no less than 29 of his prime sides, every one a classic. A first time CD collection of 1950s hits and rarities by one of the masters of R&B! Beautifully packaged by Pepperbox, with rare memorabilia and extensive, not to say intensive, notes by our man in the pointy creepers Dave Penny! Wonderfully re-mastered by Norman Blake and Joe Foster at the mysterious Studio 3, Glasgow, Scotland!
