    30 track collection of original King and Atco recordings (1949 to '56) from Mr. Wynonie Harris, a Rhythm & Blues superstar of LA's Central Avenue, playing for a sophisticated adult audience and making hit after hit. A wild-man by all accounts, few records made a stronger seismic impact than Harris' 1948 chart-topper 'Good Rockin' Tonight'. With a rocking, socking backbeat, the record provided an easily followed blueprint for the imminent rise of Rock 'n' Roll. It also gave Elvis Presley something to place on the A side of his second Sun single, provided the blueprint for his music, and meant he would cover his songs faithfully throughout his legendary career. Harris was a dynamic, hit-making performer with a great voice who made good money purveying blatantly adult songs to adult night club patrons the length and breadth of the USA.
