The Chicken Shack Boogie Man [Proper Pairs]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Amos Milburn's powerful boogie piano and bluesy vocals helped set the stage for rock & roll in the late 1940s through the early 1950s. His recordings for Aladdin Records were big influences on artists like Fats Domino and Chuck Berry, and although Milburn didn't taste much success in the rock & roll era, without him the genre might well have been a good deal duller.

He knew his way around a ballad, too, and there are some nice ones here, including "Everything I Do Is Wrong" and "In the Middle of the Night." One of Milburn's biggest themes was drinking, and several of those songs are also here, although unfortunately not perhaps his best-known tune in this style, the ubiquitous "One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer." Casual listeners may be better served by a single-disc compilation, while ardent fans will no doubt want the seven-disc Mosaic box, but for listeners who fall between, this British set is perfect.
