Big Joe Turner was a force of nature, the greatest, most original and influential of all the Blues shouters. He and Boogie-Woogie pianist Pete Johnson had famously pioneered Jump-Blues after teaming up in the mid-1930s. And for more than five decades, from Kansas City bars to the Carnegie Hall, taking in Swing, Rhythm & Blues, Rock & Roll and even early Soul, Big Joe hollered and roared. He was comfortable singing in all venues and circumstances; and over the decades, small bands, big bands, trios, pianists, rock groups, choirs, all styles of accompaniment rocked to his rhythm. This compilation picks Big Joe's recording career up in January 1946 and takes it to the Spring of 1950. It features essential sides like 'My Gal's A?Jockey', 'Battle Of The Blues (Parts 1 &?2)', 'Fuzzy Wuzzy Honey' and 'Still In The Dark'.
