Thread Name: What is Rock 'n Roll???
Subject: RE: What is Rock 'n Roll???
Post War Delmore Brothers output is almost all Boogie Woogie, often with a hot electric guitar break.
The guitar is sometimes Kenneth "Jethro" Burns.
I have lobbied for more discussion of the Boogie Woogie craze as it relates to Rock 'n' Roll earlier in the thread.
There is an amazing box set with 15 CDs and 300 songs called the Boogie Box. Amos Milburn, Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith, Louis Jordan, Ivory Joe Hunter, Hawkshaw Hawkins, John Lee Hooker, Big Joe Turner, Charlie Gracie, Bill Haley and even Nate Cole. Fun stuff.
