1995 compilation contains Ike's first recording, 'Rocket 88' (released by Chess as by Jackie Brenston), while the rest of the cuts detail some of his finest productions for Modern Records dating from 1954-56. The CD features his blistering blues guitar & rolling piano with a boogie beat. It spotlights some of the vocalists he discovered including Dennis 'Longman' Binder, Lonnie 'The Cat', J.W. Walker, Johnny Wright & the late Billy Gayles. On all the sides the Kings of Rhythm act as accompanists, & Ike himself turns up under the Lover Boy disguise. Ace.
