Tell Me Pretty Baby

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bill Dahl
Lusty, romping jump blues and boogies from 1947-1949 that team Big Joe Turner with his longtime piano partner Pete Johnson and a coterie of solid L.A. sessioneers. The two dozen entries include party rockers like "Wine-O-Baby Boogie," "Christmas Date Boogie," "I Don't Dig It," and an incredibly raunchy two-part "Around the Clock Blues" where Turner spends his time in a by-the-hour sexual tryst.
