Mr Cleanhead Blows His Greatest Hits - Selected Singles 1944-1950
These are his great seminal recordings from the heyday of rhythm and blues which still rock almost seventy-five years after their recording.
During The 1940s Eddie 'Cleanhead' Vinson was one of the biggest stars in black America. He strode the decline of the big bands and the rise of the smaller R&B unit like a behemoth, scoring hits with cootie williams orchestra and then with his own band.
He was able to compete with the biggest stars of his genre like Louis Jordan etc. Until the rise of rock and roll and the new younger audience changed the landscape for him and all of his contemporaries.
