ROCK EVERY BODY ROCK * McKINLEY MITCHELL * BOXER 204 * USA
This repress was originally released on Johnny Moore's short lived Chicago based Boxer imprint and is an example of a Rock & Roll / R&B tradition that spanned at least a decade. Although there is some distinction on race grounds between Rock & Roll and R&B in the great scheme of things they can be essentially the same thing. Much debate surrounds the naming of the first Rock & Roll record, and while the question will probably never be settled definitively this cut http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojHWfUlwGtA by Goree Carter from 1949 is the latest in contention as a serious contender for the title. One decade later and on his first release McKinley Mitchell's Rock Everybody Rock the B side to the more popish Lazy Dizzy Daisy proves that there was still plenty energy and passion in the genre.
