Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Bill Dahl.
Producer Bobby Robinson released a slew of classic blues and R&B sides on his Harlem-based Fury and Fire record labels in the late '50s and early '60s, including tracks by such notables as Elmore James, Lightnin' Hopkins, Lee Dorsey, and many others, and several of these are collected in this two-disc, 38-track set, including such classic cuts as Wilbert Harrison's "Kansas City," harpist Buster Brown's "Fannie Mae" and "Sugar Babe," Elmore James' "The Sky Is Crying," and Lee Dorsey's "Ya Ya" and "Do-Re-Mi." It's not the whole story of Robinson's achievements as a producer and label owner, but it certainly paints a compelling portrait of his importance in both roles as part of the late-'50s and early-'60s New York music scene. ~ Steve Leggett
