Look out! as the man himself said, 'This is it!' Throw away those old bootlegs, sell the other albums and pick up these nine little boogie woogie blue plates. This is everything Louis Jordan recorded for Decca - in other words nine CDs of the most influential, and purely enjoyable R&B ever cut. Truly Reet Petite And Gone! Here are just a few of the memorable jump 'n' jive hits: Outskirts Of Town, What's The Use Of Gettin'Sober, Five Guys Named Moe, GI Jive, Caldonia, Buzz Me, Salt Pork West Virginia, Beware, Stone Cold Dead In The Market (with Ella Fitzgerald), Choo-Choo Ch'Boogie, Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens,
Open The Door Richard, Boogie Woogie Blue Plate, Run Joe, Baby It's Cold Outside (with Ella Fitzgerald), Beans And Cornbread, Saturday Night Fish Fry and Blue Light Boogie. It's no exaggeration to say that R&B starts here. This is also the only set carefully re-engineered from the original metal parts!
