Honi soit qui mal y pense. Don't worry. R&B was a marginal phenomenon in the late 40s, only affecting hipsters well within the confines of clubs and speak-easies. Whites weren't even aware of the honking & shouting excitement going on in there, if it wasn't for a 14-year old, freshly moved from Tupelo, MS to Memphis, TN, absorbing everything he heard on local black radio station WDIA, including Wynonie's Good Rockin' Tonight message, confirmed with follow-up All She Wants To Do Is Rock, all made in Cincinnati (King) in days before Sun.

Brian Setzer Orch. [with bits of Take The A-Train and Monk's Dream]
