A landmark first CD reissue of one of the best... but least known... R&B singer-pianists from Memphis. Twenty six high class boogie, blues and R&B sides recorded between 1951 and 1954 by Sam Phillips at Sun Records. Includes all 4 Billy 'Red' Love sides recorded by Sun and issued by Chess Records in 1951 and '52 including the extremely rare, never before reissued – My Teddy Bear Baby / Poor Man. Few collectors have even seen this record. Includes Love’s classic recording of Juiced, issued under the name of Jackie Brenston as the follow up to Rocket 88, plus both sides of the Sun single that never was – Hey Now/ Way After Midnight. Includes the rare promotional disc for Hart’s Bakery in Memphis – Hart’s Bread Boogie. 10 tracks not originally issued in the 1950s and 10 more tracks issued here for the first time. Features the cream of Memphis R&B musicians. The booklet by Martin Hawkins contains the first ever biography of Love’s unusual career and amazing life. Rare photographs including the first ever solo shot of Billy Love.
