Rocket '88


Ladies and gentleman I introduce you to the first rock song in history...a little song called, Rocket 88 recorded March 5, 1951 at Sun Studios by Mr. Sam Phillips. The song was originally put together by Ike Turner of Tina Turner fame but Jackie Brenston Saxophonist of Ike turner's old band is the artist who brought it to the charts. The song was based off of Jimmy Liggins Jump Blues classic, Cadillac Boogie and off the popular vehicle of the time Oldsmobile Rocket '88. Enjoy.
