What is the FIRST rock and roll record? It’s one of the more debated topics in rock and roll history. Was it Roy Brown’s 1947 jump blues classic “Good Rockin’ Tonight”? Was rock and roll born in 1949 with Fats Domino’s debut single “The Fat Man” or Jimmy Preston’s “Rock the Joint”? Was it 1951, which featured the distorted electric guitar sounds of Jackie Brenston’s “Rocket 88” as well as the racy lyrics of the Dominoes’ “Sixty Minute Man”? Does rock and roll begin when white artists start playing black rhythm and blues music, such as Bill Haley and His Comets’ “Crazy Man Crazy” (1953) and “Rock Around the Clock” (1955). Or was the first rock and roll song recorded way back in 1922 with Trixie Smith’s “My Daddy Rocks Me With One Steady Roll”? Other contenders include Louis Jordan’s “Saturday Night Fish Fry” (1949), Wild Bill Moore’s “Rock and Roll” (1949), The Crows’ “Gee” (1953), the Chords “Sh-Boom” (1954) and Elvis Presley’s “That’s All Right (Mama)” (1954).
