The incomparable DJ “Mojo” Man (a.k.a. Little Victor) presents the 10th and final volume of this interesting and very successful series focused on the originators of rock and roll and the very first “rockers” so to speak, African American artists. This CD sounds like an upgraded and improved modern-day version of the legendary STOMPIN’ and many similar “unofficial” albums that first made the World aware of so many great forgotten obscure tracks nowadays regarded as “classic” of the genre. The artwork is simply fantastic and the back of the CD (like all the compilations by the “Mojo” Man) mentions the original label and catalogue number, so it’s easy for a record collector to score an original copy. Once again too many good songs to mention here. This collection features 28 tracks even if it’s hard for any human mind to remember more than 20 or 24 songs by different artists. It’s really a “Super Big Gulp” of a record diabolically designed to quench any thirst of any size – even if in real life a “Big Gulp” drink usually gets flat and warm before you can finish it and the ice already starts melting while you are sipping half-way thru it. It’s another “All Fine Frame – No Parts Lame” CD but the highlights of this volumes are probably the rare rockin’ version of “Bloodshot Eyes” that Wynonie Harris re-recorded for Roulette, “Teenage Party” by Sonny Knight, a black version of “Raunchy” by Ernie Freeman and the original recording of the Little Richard-style number “Messing With The Kid” by Junior Wells on Chief Records. Junior is mostly regarded as a bluesman nowadays but he recorded songs in many different styles during his long career. This was his contribution to the rock and roll craze of the late 1950s. Wells recorded this number many times in a more “bluesy” vein and the song is considered a blues standard today.
