Description

Rocks on CD

Newly re-mastered, 6-sided digipak, discographical details, plus extensive liner notes by roots music expert, Bill Dahl. Feelin' Good, Mystery Train, and I Wanna Ramble are well known classics and inspired generatons of blues and rock musicians alike. Mystery Train was only a modest hit for the 1932 born Parker. But the version produced by Sam Phillips for the young Elvis Presley made this Herman Parker composition immortal. This compilation not only features the great early rocking numbers for the Memphis-based Sun Records company; his later recordings for Don Robey's Duke Records label in Houston also testify to what a great blues musician and cool rocker Little Junior Parker was. Parker died of a brain tumor in a Blue Island, Illinois hospital at age 39. He left behind a bountiful blues recording legacy that stretched across nearly two decades and saw him scoring a string of hits for two of the seminal independent labels of the postwar era.
