Louis Jordan (July 8, 1908 – February 4, 1975)


I can't believe I had to go 6-8 pages in for this name to be mentioned.

He was Little Richard 10-15 years before Penniman.

The true Grandfather of Rock n' Roll.

Bukka White - Parchman Farm Blues (1940)

Parchman Farm is the Mississippi state penitentiary, probably similar to Angola prison in Louisiana.

White actually served a couple of years at Parchman Farm for assault.

re: Old Timey -- a thread for pre-rock country, folk, and blues
Came across this thread through Google. I'm actually surprised that no one has mentioned Sam Chatmon, the legendary blues musician from Hollandale, MS and half brother of Charlie Patton. Sam was also a member of the Mississippi Sheik.

Also, the Alan Lomax Archive channel on youtube has hundreds of videos (including the ones above) of these old blues musicians performing their music for him. Alan Spent his entire adult life traveling the world documenting and preserving folk music. Check it out if you get a chance. It's very organized and searchable.

The Maddox Brothers and Rose - "George's Playhouse Boogie" (1949)

Awfully dang c!ose to R&R. The guitar bit at :42 was later recycled by session legend Grady Martin in the Johnny Burnette Trio's immortal "Train Kept a-Rollin'" (1956).
