Editorial Review:

Product Description:
MCA has newly repackaged their classic 20-cut Louis Jordan compilation to include the same jumpin' jives at a lower price! Choo Choo, Ch'Boogie; Saturday Night Fish Fry; What's the Use of Getting Sober?; Caldonia; Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens; Run, Joe; Barnyard Boogie , and more.
With 20 originals from Louis Jordan's '40s and early '50s heyday at Decca Records, Best Of is the definitive collection of the blues-jazz bandleader-singer's work. Most of the cuts are up-tempo jumpers with lyrics that tell sly tales of the black experience in midcentury: the house-partiers in "Saturday Night Fish Fry" end up in the slam, while the institution of marriage occasions a warning in "Beware." Jordan also dabbled in Latin and Brazilian rhythms on "Run Joe" and "Early in the Morning," and even added a major ballad, "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Cryin'," to the standard repertoire. A major influence on Ray Charles, James Brown, and Chuck Berry, Jordan is a must-hear. --Rickey Wright
