• Buddy JOHNSON & His Orchestra - Rock On! The 100th Anniversary Collection - Twenty Years of Blues, Boogie and Ballads 1941-1961

Buddy Johnson's Orchestra was one of the most exciting and indeed popular black big bands in the pre rock and roll era. Unlike most of his contemporaries Buddy was able to embrace the rock and roll era and still enjoy, if not chart hits, certainly popular jukebox and radio sellers that kept his big band on the road until the very early 60s.

Hits galore with 52 superb tracks including: 'Let's Beat Out Some Love'; 'Baby Don't You Cry'; 'When My Man Comes Home'; 'That's The Stuff You Gotta Watch'; 'They All Say I'm The Biggest Fool' and many more!

Features the superb voices and talents of Ella Johnson and Arthur Prysock.

Fully detailed liner notes.
