Amos Milburn Rocks CD
One of the great hit-makers of the Rhythm & Blues era, Amos Milburn wrote and recorded uproarious odes to sex, booze and all-night partying. It was Rock 'n' Roll in everything but name.
Amos rocked the house for the LA-based Aladdin label right from the beginning. At his debut session in 1946 he cut the piledriving Down The Road Apiece, and he kept the hit parade jumping with Chicken Shack Boogie, Roomin' House Boogie and Sax Shack Boogie. They're all here on Amos Rocks along with his odes to the bottle like Bad Bad Whiskey, Let Me Go Home Whiskey, and One Scotch One Bourbon One Beer and more.
Long before Fats Domino or any of his fellow revolutionaries came anywhere near a studio, Amos Milburn rocked!
