Bear Family Records Rocks Volume 1 CD

With more than 70 releases since 2002, the 'Rocks' series presents CDs full to the brim of popular and obscure rockers of various origins.
Bear Family Records Rocks Volume 1 provides a thorough overview of the genre - featuring 30 outstanding rockin' jumping R&B, Rock 'n' Roll and blues performers such as Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Jimmy Reed, Slim Harpo, The Drifters and many many more.
The 'Rocks' CDs have set a lofty standard for savage rocking and this releaseis sure to rip the roof off any no-holds-barred juke joint soiree.
Its 30 selections range from New Orleans R&B legends Fats Domino, Lloyd Price, and Smiley Lewis to guitar scorchers Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown and Bo Diddley.
Chuck Berry and Little Richard show why they're regarded as the fathers of rock and roll, though their forefathers Big Joe Turner, Amos Milburn, and Roy Milton and His Solid Senders illustrate that jumping R&B thrived long before the emergence of either one of them.
The set offers plenty of rocking blues via Jimmy Reed, Little Junior Parker, Arthur 'Big Boy' Crudup, Champion Jack Dupree, and Slim Harpo, encompasses the era's top vocal groups in the '50s R&B field with The Coasters, Drifters, Midnighters, "5" Royales, and Cadillacs, and pays loving tribute to the best lounge acts ever with storming entries by The Treniers and Louis Prima.
