Another CD album from the Bear Family Records - Rock'n'Roll CD series - Rocks -

The only career retrospective to combine the biggest hits of Piano Red and his alter-ego, Dr. Feelgood.
His irresistibly cheerful songs inspired Little Richard, Aretha Franklin and a host of rockabillies including Carl Perkins.
Five tracks are released here for the first time ever.

The boisterous barrelhouse blues of Willie Perryman were a guaranteed good time no matter which name the Atlanta 88s ace recorded under. After scoring five pounding R&B hits in 1950-1951 for RCA Victor as Piano Red (including the piledriving Rockin' With Red and Right String But The Wrong Yo Yo) and cutting a slew of additional rockers for the firm that stretched into 1958, Piano Red signed with Columbia's OKeh subsidiary, he switched his moniker to Dr. Feelgood and The Interns and nailed a big hit in '62 with his irresistible Doctor Feel-Good.

Bear Family's exhaustive four-CD boxed set 'The Doctor's In!' remains the ultimate Piano Red/Dr. Feelgood collection, but this disc boasts a lot of its high points' Piano Red's Victor hits and a generous array of other Victor standouts (including the blistering instrumental 'Wild Fire'), the best of Piano Red late '50s sides for Checker and Jax, and five previously unreleased OKeh and Columbia sides from 1962 and '66 that were presumed lost when the box was compiled.
