Play It Again - R&B Answers Copycats and Follow-Ups Volume 1 CD

Back in the rockin' 1950s, invariably chart-busting R&B records would inspire a slew of covers, follow-ups and some fine copy-cat wannabes.
Play It Again Volume 1 - the first of two sets - kicks off with Jackie Brenston's My Real Gone Rocket a sequel to his big hit Rocket 88 which is considered by many to be the first fully imagined Rock 'n' Roll smash opus to hit the jukes in 1951, placing Ike Turner & His Kings of Rhythm at the head of the game.
Roy Brown's Mr. Hound Dog's In Town was one of many post hound-dog songs released after Willie Mae "Big Mama" Thornton's #1 chart-topper.
As well as featuring solo Rhythm & Blues artists, vocal groups like The Cadillacs and The Monotones are highlighted with spin-offs to their own hits Speedo and Book of Love.
