Rocks on CD

Luck is a rare word in the Blues. But luckily the Blues had a baby and they named it Rock and Roll!Crudup (1905 - 1974) was amongst the unlucky bluesmen who barely got a dime for writing the songs that became classics in the wide field of Blues, R&B and - later - Rockabilly when a young Elvis Presley revived his songs with his own arrangements. The 'Big Boy' was almost forgotten by the mid-1950s, but Presley's unique hit versions of Crudup songs pulled him out of obscurity. Crudup signed a contract with Fire Records in the late 1950s and issued several 45rpm singles. An album release followed in 1961. Arthur's popularity raised especially through his global appearances on many Folk and Blues festivals throughout the 1960s. His popularity didn't stop in the following years until his death in 1974. Today, Arthur 'Big Boy' Crudup's regarded a legendary figure in the world of American popular music. He takes an immensly important position in music history, both as a singer and a songwriter. He was inducted into the 'Blues Hall of Fame' in 1994.
