Very limited printed CDr release in DVD box style packaging. Includes 28-page booklet. “Henry Glover wrote so many killer tunes it makes your mind bend.” Dr. John. Henry Glover was the first producer/writer in the American music industry, paving the way for a host of illustrious followers such as Phil Spector, Leiber & Stoller and Burt Bacharach. Composer, producer, arranger, publisher, talent scout, vocalist, trumpet player, engineer, A&R executive, and, later, a label owner in his own right, Glover was one of the most talented music industry entrepreneurs of the twentieth century. The fact that he was black and working in an exclusively white executive environment makes his achievements all the more remarkable. Glover’s formative years were spent at Cincinnati-based King Records and the majority of hits on that label during its golden era from 1947 to 1958 were Henry Glover productions. He was equally at home with white and black music. His pioneering work with Moon Mullican and Hawkshaw Hawkins combining blues and country predates Elvis Presley’s Sun recordings by several years. Glover tried his hand at doo-wop and rock’n’roll music, but he found his greatest success in the dance craze era of the early 1960s. In later years, Glover channelled his energies into forming his own record label (he launched the careers of The Hawks, who mutated into The Band, and of Nick Ashford). One of his last productions was Muddy Waters’s swansong The Woodstock Album, which won a Grammy in 1975. This 4CD set contains 125 Henry Glover songs sung by Bill Doggett, Bull Moose Jackson, Champion Jack Dupree, The Checkers, Delmore Brothers, Eddie 'Cleanhead' Vinson, Hank Ballard, Joey Dee, Little Willie John, Lucky Millinder, Lula Reed, Moon Mullican, Roy Brown, Ray Charles, Sonny Thompson, The Swallows, Tiny Bradshaw, Wynonie Harris, The 5 Royales and many more…
