Album Cover Notes;



WHEN BLUES WERE KING - The year was 1944. A record store owner named Syd Nathan started a music company in Cincinnati, Ohio. He called his company King Records. In his own words, it would be King of them all. Indeed, King Records would take the lead as it produced and released some of the best Rhythm & Blues music of all time. Sixty years later, King Records current owner, Moe Lytle, is dedicated to keeping the gold mine of Kings vintage Original Blues Recordings available to the public. Bill Doggett was 40 years old when his song, Honky Tonk, hit #1 on the R&B charts in 1956. It became the hottest instrumental hit of the 1950s and was a crossover Pop hit that charted for 29 weeks. Bill Doggett was the man responsible for making the organ, an instrument previously reserved for church music, fair game for use on R&B, Pop and eventually Rock music. William Ballard Doggett was born on February 16, 1916 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He learned to play the piano from his aunt, and was hailed a child prodigy by age thirteen. While in High School, Doggett played in the Jimmy Gormand Band. Doggett became the bandleader, and eventually sold the band to Lucky Millinder. Beginning in 1939, Bill Doggett played with a host of names that made their mark in R&B and Pop music: Lucky Millinder, Wynonie Harris, Benny Goodman, Johnny Otis, The Ink Spots, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald are prominent. Doggett credits his time with Louis Jordon, where he replaced Wild Bill Davis, as a strong influence on his music and style. Bill Doggett recorded with King Records from 1952-1960s. Slow Walk (1956), Ram-Bunk-Shush (1957) and Rainbow Riot (1959) are classic Bill Doggett at his best. The saxophone playing of Clifford Scott was also a big part of Bill Doggetts sound. King Records Original Blues Recordings were a major influence on much of todays music. The Blues evolved into Rock-N-Roll, and Rock evolved into Hip-Hop. The music vaults at King Records are still brimming with those landmark artists and songs that got it all started over half-a-century ago. After all these years, the Blues are still King.
