This album collects the writing and performing of Jesse along with a fine long essay that starts… The Koko Mojo Songwriter Series album Crazy, Crazy Party (KM-CD-174) explores Jesse Stone’s contribution to the world of Rhythm & Blues and Rock ‘n’ Roll music from his writing skills. The album furthermore includes some of his performances using his birth name and his alter ego Charles/Chuck Calhoun, which was also a name he used for writing. The album showcases thirty rhythmic rockers encapsulating the years 1948 through 1962, and numerous songs featured fall into the “must-have” classification. In 1974, the head of Atlantic Records, Ahmet Ertegun, said, ”Jesse Stone did more to develop the basic rock and roll sound than anybody else.”

This continues to giving a wealth of information to read while you enjoy the great sounds.
