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 accolade is a strong statement that Stone’s work for the Atlantic Record Company helped shape Rhythm & Blues music and made the cross-over into the emerging Rock ‘n’ Roll music. Several songs on this album often had his physical presence upon them, and the sleeve notes provide were available the session information and indicate his personal involvement.
