Daddy Rollin’ Stone – Otis Blackwell

Moving out of the Sam Cooke and into the (real) Rhythm and Blues with the pioneering Otis Blackwell. This, his first cut, recorded/released in 1952 was the start of a long, illustrious career. Best known as a songwriter, (publicly), Otis was a DON of Rhythm and Blues and had a MAJOR influence on ‘Rock and Roll’ penning two of Elvis’ biggest cuts as well as tunes by, (among others), Jerry Lee Lewis and Dee Clark.

BIG piece of tune….Connoisseurs selection.
