Product Notes

R&B vocalist, drummer and bandleader Roy Milton was one of the hit-making R&B artists to emerge in the mid-40s in the wake of the demise of the big bands to be replaced by small jump-blues bands who laid the groundwork for rock 'n' roll, and his band The Solid Senders was widely regarded as one of the very best in the genre during that time. In the fifteen years or so before his style of music was submerged by the very artists whose careers owed much to the likes of Milton and his peers, he had twenty-one R&B hits, including Top 5 classics like "Milton's Boogie", "R.M. Blues", "Hop, Skip And Jump", "Information Blues", "Best Wishes" and "Junior Jives". This great-value 55-track 2-CD set comprises recordings from across this key first period of his career, which encompassed all his chart entries and best-known work, and features recordings on the Hamp-Tone, Juke Box, Miltone, Speciality, Dootone and Warwick labels. It ranges across the spectrum of the genre, and underlines why Milton's Solid Senders were one of the most popular and active touring bands of the era, and it's a great showcase for a talented entertainer and innovator
