Jackie Brenson's Chess recording "Rocket 88" was cut in 1951 and is often cited as the first rock'n' roll record- however a casual listen to Jimmy Liggins' "Cadillac Boogie", cut in 1947 may well cause a rewrite of that particular historical fact. This compilation spans the 6 years from 1947 to 1953 and comprises 24 Jimmy Liggins sides cut for Specialty Records, 5 of which are previously unissued. Unlike brother Joe, guitarist Jimmy played a more rough and ready blues, but still had his fair share of R&B hits. including the top 5 "Drunk", which includes the immortal line "Went for the pillow, missed the whole darn bed". Maybe not sophisticated, but it sure does rock.
