Frank Motley and his Motley Crew
Go! Man! Go! - Double Barrelled Blues & Boogie 1952-'56 CD

Frank Motley was a famous Rhythm & Blues bandleader who recorded prolifically throughout the 1950s.
His fame was not merely down to his volume of recorded work, more for the power of his live performance - specifically his ability to play two trumpets simultaneously.
His Motley Crew famously featured singer/pianist Curley Bridges, singer Elsie 'Angel Face' Kenley, and drummer Thomas 'TNT' Tribble.
They recorded extensively for Washington-based DC Records from 1951, who licensed many of their recordings to labels like Gotham, Specialty, RCA, Big Town, Hollywood and Gem.
This is a great 'lost' body of work, much of which has never previously appeared on CD.
This repertoire is sought after by R&B and Rock 'n' Roll collectors alike, notably Bow Wow Wow, which is viewed by specialist collectors as being among the most raucous and exciting Rock 'n' Roll records of all time.
