This Gem features all your favorite R&B hits from 1955 on a 2 CD set.Stand out tracks  include Ray Charles' "I've Got A Woman" , "All Righty Oh Sweety " by The Clovers, "Watcha Gonna Do" by the Drifters,  "Flip Flop and Fly" by Joe Turner, "Don't  Be Angry" by Nappy Brown (Was this written for Don Imus?) , "Hey Bartender" by Floyd Dixon,  "Ain't It A Shame" by Fats Domino, "Bo Diddley" by Bo Diddley, "Hot Little Mama" by Johnny Guitar Watson and "As Long As I'm Moving" by the wonderful Ruth Brown who played Motormouth Mabel in John Waters' "Hairspray"...  There are so many to mention...I guess 1955 was a little to early to include the fantastic Tina Turner..  But if you like good music with some hard pounding Rhythm and Blues --- you will love this CD...
