2001 marked the Golden Anniversary of a GOLD Record from an Era when Fifty-thousand 45’s was a BIG Seller. That 500K-selling Single cut the edge of a new style before deejay Alan Freed named it: ROCK & ROLL. Sam Phillips, Sun Studios founder, tagged that Billboard #1 R&B Smash as the very first “Rock & Roll Recording”. Every hell-raiser, hip-shaker, and hit-maker ...

I wish I could rate this one higher. 13 Jun. 2003
By Timothy C. Beasley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Forget that this alblum is a good sampler of Ike Turner's best work. Forget that this is high quality release from Ace. The original version of Rocket 88 is included here! The song, for those of you that don't know is, THE mother of all R&B songs. If I have a favorite song - "rocket 88" is it. It is the epitome of the 50's R&B feel- drinking, women.. and that's not all...it *is* afterall, a song about a car! What makes this song so special is the feel. The unique guitar sound was achived form stuffing a damaged guitar amplifier full of paper. The result was the *first* example of distortion. Mix that with some killer tenor sax and some tough-guy lyrics, and you have one of the most historically important and hardest rocking songs of all time. Some claim "Rocket" to be the first Rock n' Roll song. Other great songs include: 'All the blues all the time' A medley in which Ike's tearin' it up on some popular blues riffs of the day. In most cases better guitar work than the original song!, 'Night Howler' A lawdy miss clawdy spin off...and a good one too!, 'I Ain't Drunk', 'Nobody Wants Me' in the tradition of fats domino's 'nobody loves me'
Rocket 88 alone, make this worth picking up. This alblum is the prize of my collection.

Exellent cd of Ike Tuner & His Rhythm Kings 12 May 2006
By Costa Rican Papi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great single disc collection of Ike Turner & His Rhythm Kings' brand of hot & sizzling rhythm & blues. From the huge hit Rocket 88 to the All The Blues medley, Ike's wild boogie piano playing and blues guitar is showcased well. This is one of those cd's you pop in your 50's custom/hotrod and blast while cruisin.' Great cd that jumps all the way through, and is great for jive dancers and swing dancers alike. Hot sizzling wild 50's r&b.

Ike's rock and roll roots are GREAT! 27 Dec. 2007
By By Mark Braun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Openinig with the original ROCKET 88, Ike Turner and band(s) are assembled lovingly to crank out some stripped down r&b that sure sounds rock and roll roots to me.

Jammin' piano riffs and sax are nicely cleaned up for CD here; if you're an early rock hound, here's what American white organizations were afraid would invade their safe, whitebread culture. Elvis did it, but Ike and his band(s) did it here really well. Kudos to ACE Records and let this blast from the past take you a half century back for some get-down rockin'.

I've started my Ike listening to this CD compilation and WOW! Great, great 50's sounds!

good compilation 11 Aug. 2006
By Keith Forsyth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Good overview of Ike, although missing some of the instrumental gems. Check out "I Like Ike" on Rhino as another good compilation.

Contrary to the implication of the "Editorial Review", Jackie Brenston was not only CREDITED with writing "Rocket 88", he actually DID write it, according to the folks still living in Clarksdale who knew both of them at the time.
ROCKET 88' WITH A BULLET 22 July 2010
By Gordon Marshall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was one of those who always thought that there were rock and roll songs long before Bill Halley's "Rock around the clock". Ike Turner's "Rocket 88" was one of those. I hadn't heard the song for a long time- my casette tape of it wore out long ago. So I was thrilled when I saw this compilation, ordered it post haste, and have been playing it non-stop in the car ever since. If ever there is a cd meant to be played in a car while driving- this is it. Great songs with great liner notes.
