Jukebox Hits 1936-1949
Acrobat continues their series highlighting the American Juke Box/Harlem Hit Parade/Race Record/Rhythm & Blues chart hits by a selection of the biggest stars of the 1940's and 1950's swing, jazz, jump blues and R&B scenes. Most of these performers have never had their biggest hits compiled in one place. Andy Kirk had the distinction of having the very first No 1 hit on the very first published chart with "Take It And Git" He had one of the most popular bands of the period. His band was particularly known for ballads performed by the influential vocalist Pha Terrell. Like our other collections this features all the 78's that were money-spinners on jukeboxes across the world. Acrobat. 2005.
