The greatest Johnny Otis Show 1957_1959

One of the granddaddies of rhythm & blues, Johnny Otis led a West Coast big band that launched numerous careers (including those of Etta James and Esther Phillips). Otis' band wasn't just a launchpad for others, however. Johnny Otis scored big with Harlem Nocturne in 1945, then left his indelible imprint on the world of bar bands by writing Willie and the Hand Jive.
Johnny Otis' contributions include the introducing of some of rock's earliest pioneers to the public (including Jackie Wilson) and his live shows have been credited with giving rock its performance roots.
I somehow felt I couldn't get around Johnny Otis ah great live shows with those famous voices like Marci Lee and Marie Adams after yesterday's Gene Vincent. If you like simplicity, rhythm and blues, then listen to this album and enjoy the early sounds of great rock n' roll.

Elsewhere on my Blog you'll find nice albums by Little Esther Phillips & Etta James. But today we (..??) will visit the greatest Johnny Otis Show 1957_1959.

Direct link (after that go to the plain comment of this 2008_february article !) :
I have been wondering for many years if the Jeannie Sterling featured on the Johnny Otis show was the same Jeannie Sterling that became Bobby Bare's wife.
Can't seem to get a confirmation about this one way or the other whether or not they were one in the same Jeannie Sterling or not.
If anyone knows for sure whether or not they were the one and the same or not,I would greatly appreciate an answer to this question.
Most sincerely,
Wes Smith
Wes, here's the answer (one can trust Marv Goldberg) : YES !!
