1949-1950

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
This release catches Johnny Otis just as he made the switch from big band jazz-styled pieces to the pivotal R&B-based sound that would carry him into the rock & roll years. Everything here is from his first year with Savoy Records, but unfortunately doesn't include his biggest hits from that year with the label "Double Crossing Blues," "Mistrustin' Blues," "Cupid's Boogie". While this is an extremely satisfying disc, those omissions each went to number one on the R&B charts make this a poor choice for a first glimpse at this versatile and innovative musician.
