Jackie Brenston – “Rocket 88.” 45 rpm vinyl single


Delivery estimate: In stock / available now

The arguments over what was the first ever true ‘Rock’n’Roll’ record can never be proven. Even in the 1930’s and 1940’s, there were many examples of striding swing and 12-bar blues that could have easily influenced the direction of this genre of music.

Full Product Description

However, there is a consensus of opinion that if just one record could claim to be accepted as the first, it would be ‘Rocket 88’ released in 1951, and credited to Jackie Brenston & his Delta Cats. Written and performed by a young Ike Turner’s band with the vocals credited to the saxophone player, this record reached number one in the still segregated R&B charts of that year. Incidentally, to square the circle, it was produced by Sam Phillips who of course, produced the earliest Elvis Presley records 4 years later.

When Sound Leisure began production of a 1950’s design jukebox, we decided to pay homage by naming this model after this cultural landmark.

We have now managed to secure a very limited stock of this record on a 45 rpm re-press single. This is available on a first-come, first served basis!
