Rock Mr Blues! - Wynonie "Mr Blues" Harris

Rock Mr Blues!
Let us now move on to the 1950s, or should that be back? In any case, here we have Mr. Wynonie Harris with ‘Rock Mr. Blues’ in his day a superstar of LA's Central Avenue, playing for a sophisticated adult audience and making hit after hit. A bit of a wild-man by all accounts, few records made a stronger seismic impact than Harris' 1948 chart-topper 'Good Rockin' Tonight'. With a rocking, socking backbeat, the record provided an easily followed blueprint for the imminent rise of rock & roll. It also gave Elvis Presley something to place on the A side of his second Sun single provided the blueprint for his music, and meant he would cover his songs faithfully throughout his legendary career. Harris was a dynamic, hit-making performer with a great voice who made good money purveying blatantly adult songs to adult night club patrons the length and breadth of the USA. Here at Cherry Red we shall certainly be listening to this quite a bit!
