When you mention great R&B songwriters, fans might run through a dozen or two before they mention JESSE STONE. But Ahmet Ertegun said, “Stone did more to take R&B to the rock’n roll sound than anyone else. Stone said the reason Atlantic wasn’t selling in the South was because they wanted songs with rhythm. So he developed a danceable bass line and created. Cole Slaw, Money Honey, Flip Flop & Fly, Don’t Let Go, Your Cash Ain’t Nuthin But Trash, Sh-boom, Soul on fire, Shake Rattle & Roll. The man knew what he was talking about.
