    Another entry in the Bear Family's ROCKS series, this Amos Milburn collection gathers the '40s jump blues pianist and singer's greatest sides, which pointed the way to the commercial R&B of the early '50s and after, especially the piano-based New Orleans variety. Aside from "Down The Road A Piece" (which the Rolling Stones famously covered on 1964's THE ROLLING STONES, NOW!), Milburn is not particularly well-known, despite his other early R&B classics like "Chicken Shack Boogie" and "One Soda, One Scotch, One Beer," which John Lee Hooker later immortalized in his own inimitable style. This typically well-produced single-disc, 31-track compilation, with its extensive liner notes and great remastered sound, should go some ways towards righting that wrong, .
