Overview

Recorded between 1951-1973, Rock the Joint! is a single-disc, 29-track overview of singer/saxophonist Jimmy Cavallo. Cavallo appeared in the 1956 Alan Freed flick Rock, Rock, Rock, singing the title song with his band the Houserockers. A live version of that track is included, along with several other upbeat jumpers recorded mainly for the Coral label: "Rock the Joint," "The Big Beat," "Foot Stompin'," "Cherry Pie," and "Fanny Brown." The program only slows down during the accordion-laden "Hold Me in Your Arms" and "Too Many Heartaches" which, following the jump material, sound like Lawrence Welk fluff. The sound quality isn't top-notch, and is occasionally muddy, but fans of early rock & roll shouldn't allow that to sway them from purchasing this disc on the Blue Wave label.

although the sound quality is bad at times, this collection truly summarizes Jimmy's Career. He is one of the founders of rock and roll. He is still alive and preforms in florida every friday night.
