Lattie Moore
Juke Box To Juke Joint - The Anthology 1952-1962 CD

In the realms of 1950s rockabilly, Lattie Moore's original 1952 recording of Juke Joint Johnny is considered by a significant number of collectors to be the earliest example of a genre that had not yet been invented.
It wasn't a big hit, and it didn't bring much fame or fortune to Lattie at the time - but 20 years or so later it made him a hero to young UK rockabilly fans, many of whom were not yet born when he recorded it for Speed Records.
Hit or not, Juke Joint Johnny did sell well enough to bring Lattie to the attention of the King label, for whom he recorded the great material that makes up most of 'Juke Joint To Juke Box' - the most complete overview of his early career to date.
As well as two versions of his classic debut recording - cut 6 years apart - the 28 tracks here include other Lattie collector favourites like Why Did You Lie To Me, I'm Not Broke But I'm Badly Bent, Drivin' Nails In My Coffin and Here I Am Drunk Again.
While the accent throughout is definitely on the upbeat, Lattie's way with a slowie is also highlighted by selections such as Foolish Castles and Lonesome Man Blues.
Lattie lived long enough to know that his premium quality hillbilly recordings were being appreciated by a younger generation.
This collection - remastered from the best possible sources - shows exactly why there was so much love for Lattie Harrison Moore and his music, so many years after it was made.
