From the vaults of the Imperial label comes one of the great examples of how New Orleans R&B turned into rock & roll  in the ‘50s. The best Bobby Mitchell profile you ll ever need, these 26 recordings contain southern rhythm & blues, delightful doo-wop, hot rock & roll and early soul, with roaring horns and a bright production by the great Dave Bartholomew. Although Bobby Mitchell recorded the original version of the smash hit “I’m Gonna Be a Wheel Someday” (later performed with great success by Fats Domino), he never got his due as either a singer or a songwriter. He also recorded “You Always Hurt the One You Love” several years before his ex-sideman, Clarence “Frogman” Henry. The combination of Bobby s high tenor voice — unmistakably his own, but still within the very best Clyde McPhatter & The Dominoes tradition - with New Orleans’ best session men was unbeatable. These recordings also feature a virtual who’s who of fabulous musicians from the Crescent City scene, including Fats Domino, Dave Bartholomew, Clarence “Frogman” Henry, Lee Allen, Alvin Tyler, Justin Adams and Earl Palmer, among others.

“Bobby Mitchell's voice in these surroundings soars to majestic new heights of soulfulness… With Dave Bartholomew's top session men backing them up, however, their records were solid New Orleans R&B at its best, and many of the records are classics of the sound from that era.” - All Music Guide
