Album Review

This two-fer from Hi features a pair of out of print Bill Black LPs: Saxy Jazz and Solid and Raunchy, both originally issued on Hi in 1960. Highlights among the 25 tracks include "Smokie, Pt. 1" and "Pt. 2" "Don't Be Cruel," and "Raunchy," which provide a perfect combination of early R&B instrumentals and rock & roll.
Al Campbell, Rovi
