Rocket 88

ROCKET 88 was recorded in 1951 by Ike Turner and sung by Jackie Brenston. Ike later said, “Man we were just tryin to put together something to get gas to get back home.” Great song, but an obvious updated knock-off of Joe Liggins’ Cadillac Boogie in 1947 about a Cadillac 8. Both great songs but Joe’s came first.
