Indeed, Turner's mastery of every genre including blues, jazz, R&B and swing gave way to his uptempo party hits. But make no mistake'the timeless Big Joe Turner is bigger than any one genre, era or song. Side one, explores various independent single releases from 1950 to 1980. Side Two covers live performances from 1958 to 1985 - all previously unreleased performances featuring Eddie 'Cleanhead' Vincent, Milt Buckner and Slim Slam.
