Jackie Brenston & His Delta Cats
The Blues Got Me Again - Singles 1951-1962 CD

Jackie Brenston's name is of course ubiquitous in all discussions concerning 'What was the very first Rock & Roll record?' due to his Rocket 88, a Number 1 R&B record in 1951 which was famously covered by Bill Haley.
Brenston was a singer/saxophonist in Ike Turner's band, and his sole hit was essentially a head arrangement based heavily on Jimmy Liggins' Cadillac Boogie, which came together in Sam Phillips' recording studio in Memphis.
Although the disc was credited to Jackie Brenston & His Delta Cats, they were actually Ike Turner & His Kings of Rhythm.
However, although follow-ups like My Real Gone Rocket and Independent Woman are highly-regarded by collectors, he was unable to register another hit.
This 27 track collection presents everything that Brenston recorded as a lead vocalist between 1951-62, either solo, with Ike Turner, or with Chicago guitarist Earl Hooker - the first time that these twenty-seven tracks have been thus compiled.
