The recording career of Johnny Otis covers several decades. This cd contains the best recordings for Capitol, to which the Johnny Otis Show was signed from 1957 to 1959. The most well known in the UK are "Ma He's Making Eyes At Me" (no 2 in 1957), "Bye Bye Baby" (no 20 in 1958), "What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For?" (which version Emile Ford copied and took to no 1 in 1959), and "Willie And The Hand Jive" (subsequently made popular by Cliff Richard). The 26 tracks are unfortunately not in recording date order, but this is not so important when the whole cd covers a comparatively short time-span, just over 2 years. Johnny Otis is not only a singer (as you can see from the track-listing he sings lead on 13 tracks and duets on 3), leader, and entrepreneur, he is also a prolific songwriter, 20 of these tracks being written or part written by him. Finally I must applaud the interesting 16 page booklet accompanying the cd.

Johnny Otis bridged the gap between the Bues and Rhythm and Blues and the likes of Bill Haley/Elvis etc and this Album confirms it. Very good early Rock n,Roll
