Description by OLDIES.com:

Bill Doggett will forever by remembered for what is perhaps the instrumental hit of the 1950s, "Honky Tonk." Doggett probably did more to popularize the organ as an instrument in rock and pop than any other artist. Before striking out on his own in 1951, Doggett worked with the likes of Jimmy Mundy, Lucky Millinder, the Ink Spots, Lionel Hampton and Louis Jordan (he replaced Wild Bill Davis in Tympani Five). The tracks in this collection are the best of the recordings that he made for the King record label between the years 1954 and 1959 -- and his biggest singles ("Honky Tonk," "Slow Walk," "Ram-Bunk-Shush" and "Hold It").

Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Victor Pearlin.
The Very Best of Bill Doggett Honky Tonk spotlights 25 R&B tracks released by the organist in the 1950s, including "Slow Walk," "Big Boy," and his biggest hit from February 1956, "Honky Tonk, Pt. 1" and "Honky Tonk, Pt. 2." Since these are the original versions released on King Records, this sampler is highly recommended for fans of uptempo organ/saxophone combos. ~ Al Campbell
