Todd Rhodes
Your Mouth Got A Hole In It! 1947-1957 CD

Todd Rhodes led his popular band in the Detroit area throughout the late 1940s and early 1950s which included several musicians that would go on to appear on many classic records.
All four of the big hits of their heyday are included here: Blues For The Red Boy (#4 R&B chart in 1948) Pot Likker (#3 R&B chart in 1949) Page Boy Shuffle (#7 R&B chart in 1949) and Lovin' Machine (#5 on the R&B chart in 1952).
Largely an instrumental outfit of seasoned players, this collection has been compiled to spotlight the great singers who recorded with the band, from the well-known Lavern Baker, Wynonie Harris, Dave Bartholomew and Lonnie Johnson to the more obscure Louie Saunders, Pinocchio James, Emmitt Slay and Connie Allen; the latter infamous for the risqué Rocket 69, while Wynonie suggests Keep On Churnin' ('Til The Butter Comes) and his final hit, Lovin' Machine.
A handful of important instrumentals have been included including the opener Blues For The Red Boy which was retitled Blues For Moondog and used as an early theme to introduce the radio broadcasts of the legendary Alan Freed.
Also included to end the selection is the superb Page Boy Shuffle which was reissued in 1949 when acquired by King Records who mistakenly credited the track to Joe Thomas.
It hit the R&B chart that year with the wrong credit and continues to be misattributed.
