The undisputed king of the barrelhouse pianists, Amos Milburn recorded over 70 sides of scorching boogie-woogie for the Los Angeles-based Aladdin label between 1946 and 1957. His propulsive piano style would prove an indelible influence on contemporaries such as Moon Mullican and Roso Gordon, and on early rock ‘n’ rollers such as Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard. This collection takes its name from Milburn’s best-known recording, “Down the Road Apiece.” Though other artists had recorded it as early as 1940, Milburn’s version proved definitive and provided the model for subsequent covers of the song by artists such as Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones. The 20-track Down the Road… is the most satisfactory single-disc collection of Milburn’s Aladdin recordings currently available, it includes down-and-out blues such as the mournful “Real Gone” and readings of R&B standards such as “Bewildered,” but, unsurprisingly, the real standouts are out-and-out rockers like “Chicken Shack Boogie” and “Roomin’ House Boogie,” tunes whose titles alone evoke the rough- and-tumble Texas roadhouses where Milburn perfected his art.
