Editorial Reviews

Johnny Otis was something of an iconoclast. While it is common nowadays for young white people to emulate the style and speech of young African-Americans, during the first half of the 20th century the opposite was true. Otis was considered strange that he, a man born white, would forego all the racial privileges that that birth-right entailed to buck the trend and pass for a black man. He had black friends, lived in the black neighborhood and married a black woman, and his reward was the support of the black community during his record-making years making him the most successful white act of the 1950s on the Billboard R&B chart. This CD represents the early 1950s recordings of Johnny Otis, which are the rarest and least-reissued of his career. We kick off with a short blast from his radio and TV show signature theme to introduce proceedings and allow Johnny himself to describe what will follow: Rockin' R'n'B, greasy Doo-Wop, mighty Jump Blues and Swing sides give us Johnny Otis in full effect!! 29 tracks total.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Became a recent fan of Johnny Otis and found several collections of his on Amazon here.... I have not been disappointed by anything of his and this is no exception.... you get the big band blues treatment here and it is good stuff.....very tasteful and judicious use of brass and percussion instruments and very good material mainly by Johnny Otis, with a few outstanding contributions from others... I bought this compilation without hearing it first but, having heard other offerings from Johnny, I felt confident about this purchase and I wasn't disappointed... nuff said baby...........
