Default Greatest song of 1954

I wasn't around back then, but pretty sure some old heads here were.

Well, Johnny Ace spun the chamber of his cowboy gun,
He was tired and weathered from the beatin' of the Texas sun.
Well he didn't even cry, stuck it in his eye,
Pulled the trigger and he said, "Bye bye."
Just another singer dammin' up the waters of life.

Bill Haley and his Comets recorded Rock Around the Clock in 1954.

Really nice Kizzle! I love these classics, just haven't put in the time to find these gems.

ps - how do you classify this type of music? This "blue moon" type stuff.

This is just a style of early R&B. If you're speaking of this Blue Moon which is probably the most famous version from 1961, that was considered a Doo-Wop song. Doo-Wop is just a genre of R&B with a lot of vocal harmony.

Elvis did his version in, appropriately enough, 1954. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiY5auB3OWg

The original song was written in the 30's for a Hollywood musical as a standard ballard.

J.J. Jackson. LInk is to his arraingement, can't find him

One of the most interesting obscure figures of '60s soul, J.J. Jackson scored a mammoth R&B hit in 1966 with one of the most infectious dance smashes of the decade, "But It's Alright." The New Yorker had worked as an arranger for Jack McDuff and Jimmy Witherspoon before his manager arranged for Jackson to come to England in 1966. Though "But It's Alright," with its classic stuttering guitar riff and sharp horn charts, sounded as authentic as any Stax/Volt single, it was actually recorded in the U.K. with British session musicians. Jackson -- a mammoth, nearly 300-pound man who also played organ -- was a grainy, good-natured belter in the mold of Otis Redding. A talented songwriter who penned much of his own material, he wrote the A-side of one of the Pretty Things' best mid-'60s R&B/raunch singles ("Come See Me"). Jackson never matched the success of "But It's Alright," but cut some singles that are highly valued by English Northern soul connoisseurs. His hard-to-find 1969 and 1970 albums found him exploring, in the manner of most other soul stars of the time, increased social consciousness in his songwriting and increasingly sophisticated horn and string arrangements. ~

and I said this is up L. Kizzle's alley.

I knew this song, but never who did it: It's Alright.

JJ Jackson is bad, as is Chuck Jackson.

No_Look604, KevinNYC is correct.
