JACKIE BRENSTON's name is of course ubiquitous in all discussions and/or essays concerning 'What was the very first Rock & Roll record?' due to his bootin' 'Rocket 88', a #1 R&B record in 1951 which was famously covered by Bill Haley & His Saddlemen.

Brenston was a singer/saxophonist in Ike Turner's band, and his sole hit was essentially a head arrangement based heavily on Jimmy Liggins' 'Cadillac Boogie', which came together in Sam Phillips' recording studio, in Memphis.

Although the disc was credited to 'Jackie Brenston & His Delta Cats', they were actually Ike Turner & His Kings of Rhythm.

JACKIE BRENSTON's name is of course ubiquitous in all discussions and/or essays concerning 'What was the very first Rock & Roll record?' due to his bootin' 'Rocket 88', a #1 R&B record in 1951 which was famously covered by Bill Haley & His Saddlemen.

Although the disc was credited to 'Jackie Brenston & His Delta Cats', they were actually Ike Turner & His Kings of Rhythm.

However, although follow-ups like 'My Real Gone Rocket' and 'Independent Woman' are highly-regarded by collectors, he was unable to register another hit.

This compilation comprises everything that Brenston recorded as a lead vocalist between 1951-62, either solo, with Ike Turner, or with Chicago guitarist Earl Hooker; this is the first time that these twenty-seven tracks have been thus compiled.
