• Otis BLACKWELL - I Sing 'Em and I Write 'Em - The Early Recordings of Rock and Roll's Greatest Tunesmith

There are only a handful of great writers in the pantheon of classic rock and roll songs. One of them is the subject of this CD, the legendary Otis Blackwell.

Selected here are 30 examples of his forgotten talent as a performer which were far overshadowed by his song writing and producing success but which nevertheless resonate today as classic r&b.

Otis was without doubt one of the most important contributors to the language of rock and roll, a genre which would have been radically different without him.

Fully detailed liner notes.
