Johnny Otis - The Best of... 1945-1960 - That's Your Last Boogie! - 3xCD

Johnny Otis, one of the founding fathers of rock ’n’ roll represented on a stellar collection straddling his multi-faceted career between 1945-1960.
These carefully-selected and sequenced 83 tracks spread over three CDs now stand as an ultimate tribute to this pivotal figure.The son of Greek immigrants (real name Ioannis Alexandros Veliotes), Otis grew up in the predominantly black area of Berkeley, telling an interviewer in 1994, ‘Genetically, I’m pure Greek. Psychologically, environmentally, culturally, by choice, I’m a member of the black community.’ As such, he played a major part in creating a new sound for the growing audience of young urban blacks, starting out drumming in swing orchestras at 18. He formed a 16-piece big band in 1945, scoring his first hit with a glorious take on ‘Harlem Nocturne’.
Fantastic 3CD collection with: Wynonie Harris, Joe Turner, Little Esther,The Robins, Big Mama Thornton and many more.....
