Good Times

Wynonie Harris born in Omaha, Nebraska, was an American blues shouter and rhythm and blues singer of upbeat songs featuring humorous, with often ribald lyrics. With fifteen Top 10 hits between 1946 and 1952, Harris is generally considered one of rock and roll's forerunners, influencing Elvis Presley among others.

OK that's the official line - his voice and the style of records are just as relevant today I think.

On Mr Anchovy's recommendation - because I haven't heard these before and I like to learn!
