Amos Milburn - Bad Bad Whiskey - 2009.

House rent parties once used to be the rage whenever ghetto inhabitants decided to cover their weekly or monthly tab. But all that drinking, carousing, and letting those "good times roll", also provided plenty of raw material for multitudes of boogie-drenched numbers that dominated the R&B charts from the mid-40's to early 50's. And no other vocalist/piano player captured the mood of those carefree times as convincingly as did Amos Milburn. From 1948 until 1954, Milburn's sides ruled the R&B charts, and they burst the the lid open on crazy times, booze-drenched fun, and jive talkin'. Only Ruth Brown managed to attain the same level of popularity during this time period.
