    Certainly not the best decade of music, but it produced a lot of building blocks of what was to come.

    Yeah the 50's provided a good foundation for what was to come

    Some say this was the 1st Rock -N- Roll song, From 1951.

    One thing I love about that early R-N-R is the use of that dirty sax in place of a lead guitar.

    This jazz song was definitely the one that planted the jazz seed in my head. From 1959:

    Screamin' Jay Hawkins recorded this in 1956 and he doesn't remember it one bit. "The producer brought in ribs and chicken and got everybody drunk, and we came out with this weird version ... I don't even remember making the record. Before, I was just a normal blues singer. I was just Jay Hawkins. It all sort of just fell in place. I found out I could do more destroying a song and screaming it to death"
