Amos Milburn was one of the pioneers of piano-based R&B to emerge from Texas in the post-war years to become one of the artists who helped frame the template for rock 'n' roll, along the way enjoying a run of memorable hits from 1947 through into the mid-'50s.He developed from his beginnings as a boogie-woogie pianist to become a jump blues bandleader, scoring his first hit with 'Chicken Shack Boogie,' and after that helped the Los Angeles-based Aladdin label to become a major force, with his run of hits including his specialist strand of rocking booze-related hits like 'Bad Bad Whiskey', 'Thinking And Drinking', 'Let Me Go Home Whiskey', 'One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer' and 'Good Good Whiskey'. This great-value 52-track 2-CD set comprises nearly half of the 106 A & B sides he released on Aladdin, and naturally includes all of his 19 Billboard R&B chart hits, the majority of his A sides and selected B sides. It provides a hugely entertaining showcase for his talents as a vocalist, pianist, songwriter and bandleader, with boogie-woogie and blues, hot R&B, and proto rock 'n' roll during the '50s as he competed with the wave of new artists who overtook those who had laid the groundwork.
