Ace's 45th anniversary 7-inch selection continues this month by taking us back to our roots, and bringing you incredible previously unreleased alternate takes of two all-time classics of rockin' 1950s rhythm & blues. R&B lovers will need no introduction to either Roy Brown's 'Boogie At Midnight' or Lloyd Price's 'Lawdy Miss Clawdy', but these recently discovered 'Take One's put whole new perspectives on two proven classics. The fast and furious 'Boogie' makes the issued 1951 master sound like a lullaby in comparison, while 'Clawdy' has an alternate opening line that would have guaranteed no airplay would have been forthcoming back in 1952. Both tracks are taken from new transfers of the original acetate and tape sources, and both play loud and proud. Each side of the 45 offers a representation of the original label design that would have been used, had they been issued at the time of recording. No self-respecting R&B singles collector will want to be without a copy of this essential commemorative single, featuring two of the greatest names in 1950s black American music.
