Arthur ’Big Boy’ Crudup is one of the most influential bluesmen of all-time. He is the father of Rock’n’Roll!

New mastering of the most rockin’ tracks by Arthur Crudup, 1946 – 1962. Also contains many subsequent classics such as ’Mean Ole Frisco’, ’Shout, Sister, Shout’ and ’Dig Myself A Hole’.

Including a track recorded together with Elmore James under the pseudonym of Elmer James!

28 tracks and a 24 page booklet in a digipack with liner notes by Bill Dahl! Luck is a rare word in the Blues. But luckily the Blues had a baby and they named it Rock and Roll. In other words: Arthur ’Big Boy’ Crudup! Crudup (1905-1974) was one of the unlucky bluesmen who barely got a dime for writing all the songs that became classics in the wide field of Blues and R&B and later also in the Rockabilly music genre when a young Elvis Presley revived his songs in Presley’s own Rockabilly arrangements. The ’Big Boy’ was almost forgotten by the mid-1950s but Presley’s unique hit versions of Crudup songs pulled him out of obscurity. Crudup signed a contract with Fire Records in the
late 1950s and issued several 45rpm singles. An album release followed in 1961. Arthur’s popularity raised especially through his global appearances on many Folk and Blues festivals throughout the 1960s. His popularity didn’t stop in the following years up to his death in 1974.

Today Arthur ’Big Boy’ Crudup is a legende of his own. He owns an immens important position in music history as a singer and songwriter. He was inducted to the ’Blues Hall of Fame’ in 1994. Arthur ’Big Boy’ Crudup rocks and he prooves it on 28 rockin’ songs made for RCA Victor from the mid-1940s onward up to Fire recordings
from the late 1950s and early 1960s.
