Amos Milburn was born on this day in 1927. He was a part of a movement of Texas-born R&B musicians who migrated to Los Angeles to take part in the port-WWII West Coast R&B scene. His piano-based, Jump Blues party records are some of the best ever made!
Like this one! Milburn recorded this song a few times and I was originally only familiar with an earlier, slower version. But then, via a collection of recordings featuring the legendary drummer Earl Palmer, I was introduced to this 1950s version. It ROCKED MY SOCKS OFF! So good! This is no-holds-barred, rock-em sock-em, barrelhouse/roadhouse rhythm n blues! Give this one a listen if you want to ramp up your day!

I'm excited to highlight some of my favorite records in a variety of genres (soul, R&B, classic country, rockabilly, oldies, garage rock, etc). These won't all necessarily be "dance" records per se. They will all be records that I believe deserve a special listen. I simply love good music, rare or not. Hopefully you will spend some time here and love music right along with me! Lets give this a shot!
