Description by OLDIES.com:

Known as "The King of the One-Nighters" as he racked up hundreds of thousands of miles on the road, pianist Buddy Johnson was also a celebrated songwriter. He penned the classic "Since I Fell For You." His sister Ella, recognized as one of the great modern blues singers, was often his lead vocalist. This selection, which features many songs from their "Rock 'N' Roll Stage Show" album, showcases them at their swinging best.

Product Description:

Personnel: Buddy Johnson (vocals); Ella Johnson (vocals).
Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
Four of Buddy Johnson's six R&B hits on Mercury can be found on this 14-song collection that is drawn in part from the album Rock 'n' Roll Stage Show. Several tracks feature vocals by Johnson's sassy sibling, Ella, whose no-nonsense personality comes through on songs like "(Gotta Go) Upside Your Head." These recordings from the mid-'50s tend toward brassy R&B rave-ups that range from the honking instrumental "A-12" to the near doo wop of "Bring It Home to Me." "I'm Just Your Fool" is Johnson's big hit here, but the comparably successful "Hittin' on Me" is omitted. Rockin' n' Rollin' isn't exactly a greatest-hits collection, but is a worthwhile reissue since Johnson's Mercury and Wing recordings are otherwise scarce on CD. ~ Greg Adams
