Rocket 88

In honor of the life of Ike Turner I am posting what is often considered the first Rock and Roll recording "Rocket 88". For an excellent post highlighting his life please visit Malcolm at

Disclaimer: By the way I do not know what the woman putting on her stockings in her underwear has to do with anything. I don't produce these videos, I simply embed them in this blog for what hopefully will be your enjoyment.

Thanks for the blog plug. When I get home, I will make an addition to my post so that readers are aware that they can listen to "Rocket 88" over at your blog.

The woman putting on stockings is 50s pinup Bettie Page. I think she was included in the video montage because she is an icon of the 50s.

Hey Malcolm,

By today's standards Bettie Page would be considered FAT! LOL! Thanks for the info.
