A veteran of the Swing and Big Band eras of the 1930s, Tiny Bradshaw became one of the most popular R&B and Jump Jive bandleaders of the early 1950s.

He clocked up a string of hit records on the King label, out of Cincinatti, with 'Well Oh Well', 'I'm Going To Have Myself A Ball', 'Walkin' The Chalk Line', 'Soft' and 'Heavy Juice' all making the R&B Top 10, the latter two numbers famously featuring Red Prysock on tenor sax.

Elsewhere, sides like 'Gravy Train', 'Boodie Green', 'Breaking Up The House', 'Walk That Mess', 'T-99', and most notably Tiny's original version of 'The Train Kept A-Rollin'' (a number which would eventually become more readily associated with the Johnny Burnette Trio, for their wild Rockabilly version), were huge regional and Juke Box hits.

This compilation also includes copious previously unreleased material.
