Description

Saxophonist/bandleader Paul Williams cut one of the biggest hits of 1949, 'The Huckle-Buck', which topped the US R&B charts for fourteen weeks, a hugely influential disc, it was one of the first to employ the honking tenor sax solo which would become the hallmark of R&B and R&R during the 1950s.

This compilation, which is built around 'The Huckle-Buck', also includes Williams' other 1940s R&B hits, 'Thirty-Five Thirty', 'The Twister - Parts 1 & 2', 'Waxey Maxie', 'Walkin' Around', 'House Rocker', 'He Knows How To Hucklebuck', and 'Pop-Corn'.

These sides, recorded between 1948-55, present a powerful body of work; notable featured sidemen include Wild Bill Moore and Noble Watts (tenor saxes), Mickey Baker (guitar) and singers Larry Dale and Little Willie John.
