Roy Brown wrestling with r&r 28 April 2006
By Bomojaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD collects many of the later King recordings Roy Brown cut between 1953 and 1959. In a sense it's kind of a sad album: these are the years Roy should've been raking in the dough and fame, since he'd laid the foundation for this kind of music years earlier, but it just never happened. Roy's jumpin' blues style with the wailing horns in the background and his own vibrant, exciting vocals screamed ROCK AND ROLL before there even was such a thing. But though some of his r&b hits such as GOOD ROCKIN' TONIGHT were covered by r&r singers like Presley, Roy himself never could make the transition. The problem, I think, was that Roy continued to jump and jive when he should've concentrated on angst and sex appeal; he had a sexy voice when he chose to apply it, but that was rarely. AIN'T IT A SHAME, AIN'T NO ROCKIN' NO MORE, WORRIED LIFE BLUES, and MR. HOUND DOG'S IN TOWN are all excellent tracks, but the ultimate gut-wrenching, major highlight of the disc is QUEEN OF DIAMONDS, a snap-your-head-back killer, thanks to Roy's emotional vocal and the brilliant sax work of Philip Scott. Although Roy's greatest recordings predate these, these feature Roy's more deliberate attempts at cracking the r&r market, the key to which continued to allude him.

great companion to Rhino's "Good Rockin' Tonight" 10 Oct 2011
By Mark Schlesinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD features the cream of Roy's second stint with King records, along with a few earlier tracks, covering 1953 to 1959. This was a hitless era, but his music was as potent as his hits,such as "Good Rockin' Tonight", "Rockin' At Midnight", and the amazing "Butcher Pete". The hits are best represented on the Rhino compilation "Good Rockin' Tonight"Good Rockin Tonight: Best of. This is a perfect companion to "Good Rockin'", since it duplicates only one tune, the rockin' "Black Diamond". (Thus you have 39 uber-cool slabs of classic jump.)Note: this album does NOT feature the tune "Mighty Mighty Man", which is found on the Rhino disc. Brown spent much of the 60's with the Johnny Otis Show, and died in 1981. Quality on this disc is great- original mono recordings, the accoustic bass just jumps out of the speakers!
