ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dewey Phillips brought black rhythm and blues music to white teenagers in Memphis two years before Freed started doing the same in Cleveland. He brought rock'n'roll to television a year before Dick Clark's American Bandstand. And while segregation was imposed on virtually every aspect of life in the streets, "Daddy-O" Dewey gleefully integrated the airwaves of the South. These selections offer a glimpse into this unique performer during his rise, at his peak, and in the decline of his career. It is a voice that has not been heard before and will not likely be heard again - a voice which changed the social landscape of Memphis and the musical landscape of the world. One Hour of live broadcasts from 1952-1964.

A great piece of history. Needed more detailed liner notes and needed to be split into tracks. Would love to hear more craziness. Would recommend this to fans of the Grand Marquis and Tom Waits.
