Texan Amos Milburn mixed a soulful voice with exceptional songwriting and piano chops to become one of the biggest stars in the early rock scene.

Milburn showed amazing skill with a handful of cuts as a teenager which pre-dated rock and roll’s “official” birth but gave notice there was a new style was about to emerge. Signed to Aladdin Records in Los Angeles he was paired with Maxwell Davis and the two forged an working relationship the equal of any artist and producer in rock history, their abilities meshing perfectly as Davis’s saxophone was the ideal compliment to Milburn’s style. The Aladdin sides are certainly worthy of your attention – and a welcome addition to your collection.
