|Honky Tonk: The Very Best of Bill Doggett
Lowest new price: $11.88
Lowest used price: $7.99
Brand: Doggett, Bill
Bill Doggett will forever by remembered for what is perhaps the instrumental hit of the 1950s, "Honky Tonk." Doggett probably did more to popularize the organ as an instrument in rock and pop than any other artist. Before striking out on his own in 1951, Doggett worked with the likes of Jimmy Mundy, Lucky Millinder, the Ink Spots, Lionel Hampton and Louis Jordan (he replaced Wild Bill Davis in Tympani Five). The tracks in this collection are the best of the recordings that he made for the King record label between the years 1954 and 1959 -- and his biggest singles ("Honky Tonk," "Slow Walk," "Ram-Bunk-Shush" and "Hold It").

We continue our series highlighting the American Juke Box/Harlem Hit Parade/Race Record/Rhythm & Blues chart hits by a selection of the biggest stars of the 1940's and 1950's swing, jazz, jump blues and R&B scenes. Most of these performers have never had their biggest hits compiled in one place. Louis Jordan needs no introduction being one of the most influential and successful R & B artists of the 20th Century. In his lifetime he had 54 top 10 hits on the R&B chart, second only to James Brown. There are many Louis Jordan CDs on the market but none so hit-packed as this and its companion volume. Like our other collections this features all the 78s that were money-spinners on Jukeboxes across the world.

Pianist/vocalist Mitch Woods who has 6 CD's on the Blind Pig label, has recorded with John Lee Hooker, John Hammond, James Cotton, and more, as well as touring worldwide for 25 years brings together an unsung inner circle of Rock'n'Roll royalty, the original members of the Fats Domino band. This band features the architects of American music, the veritable founding fathers of Rock'n'Roll who laid the musical bedrock at J&M Studios in New Orleans in the early 50s. Woods reunited these legendary players, including drummer Earl Palmer (Little Richard, Fats Domino) and composed a batch of original tunes modeled after the original Fats Domino material. Legendary New Orleans producer, Dave Barholomew (who co-wrote many of Fats' hits, and featured on Elvis Costello's recent CD) came in on the project to help produce and play trumpet.
