This collection of hard charging r&b sides from the early 1950's has some real gems.....Guitarist RENE HALL and his trio put down their kinda rockin and trumpeter & vocalist TINY DAVIS lay down a tough side. There are a couple rarities from the DAVE BARTHOLOMEW ORCH. and early rockers from CECIL PAYNE & the amazing STOMP GORDON......Ace records issued some of these on three long out of print LP's many years ago so this digital reissue is welcome.....
