Big Joe TURNER - Rhythm & Blues Years 1987

Big Joe TURNER - Rhythm & Blues Years 1987


This disc, along with Atlantic's 'Joe Turner's Greatest Hits,' will give you a good overall view of the man and his music. Lipstick Powder and Paint, Morning Noon and Night, and You Know I Love You are the main songs that will get you on this one. The man could sing anything. And, the kick is, he couldn't read. They say his wife used to teach him the words to the songs and when he let go, what came up came out. Big Joe Turner was and is BIG.
By Lester L. Carter.
Picks up the rest of the 1950s Atlantic Records motherlode. The Chicago-cut double-entendre gem "TV Mama" (with Elmore James on guitar), the lighthearted rockers "Rock a While," "Morning Noon & Night," and "Lipstick, Powder & Paint," and a rip-snorting remake of Turner's classic "Roll 'Em Pete," here titled "(We're Gonna) Jump for Joy," that in its own way rivals the original (King Curtis' blistering sax solo doesn't hurt), are among the many highlights on the 28-song collection.
