This excellent Lowell Fulson compilation, an installment in Classics' CHRONOLOGICAL series, offers up an impressive selection of the blues/R&B vocalist/guitarist's late-1940s/early-'50s material. Arranged in chronological order--naturally--the set finds Fulson performing songs such as the swooning "Ain't Nobody's Business," the rollicking "Baby Won't You Jump with Me," and the fiery "Guitar Shuffle," revealing his vibrant sound's kinship with early rock & roll.
