Product Description:

Personnel: Bill Doggett (organ).
Recording information: King Recording Studios.
Illustrator: R. Szolkowski.
These 14 hits are a mere sampling of organist Bill Doggett's prolific output on King Records. On "Big Dog Blues (Pt. 1)" he has that keyboard humming, and on standards like "Moondust," "Sweet Lorraine," "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," and "Soft," he displays a gentler side to his genius. You get the feeling you're in a mob's speakeasy when listening to "High Heels," where Doggett's organ gurgles underneath a free-flowing sax. His organ has no defined voice, and sounds different on every tune. "As You Desire Me" has an eerie, otherworldly sound, while his most known hit, "Honky Tonk," is one of the '50s best R&B jump tunes. The only knock is the omission of half of two songs: "Big Dog Blues" and "Smokie." Forget any preconceived notions you have about Doggett -- his albums are essential to any music collection. ~ Andrew Hamilton
