The Boss Is Back


34 TRACKS / 2 CD SET ' 16 SONGS PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED ' 10 SONGS NEVER BEFORE AVAILABLE ON CD. Hall of Fame Inductee! Doc Pomus said that rock and roll wouldn't have happened without Big Joe Turner. Indeed, Turner's mastery of every genre including blues, jazz, R&B and swing gave way to his uptempo party hits. But make no mistake'the timeless Big Joe Turner is bigger than any one genre, era or song. Side one, explores various independent single releases from 1950 to 1980. Side Two covers live performances from 1958 to 1985 - all previously unreleased performances featuring Eddie 'Cleanhead' Vincent, Milt Buckner and Slim Slam. After years of 'inferior' Big Joe Turner releases, this album sets the record straight with plenty of goodies for the most completist Big Joe Turner collector.
