The Entire Fire Records Sessions for the first time on a Single CD. By 1962, when Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup belatedly released his debut album, he'd been recording for two full decades. His songs "That's All Right (Mama)" and "My Baby Left Me" were part of the fresh approach that catapulted Elvis Presley to stardom, but Crudup had actually composed and released these titles during the 1940's.

By 1962 Crudup had retired from the music industry, due in part to frustration over lack of publishing royalties, but he made a strong comeback. Bobby Robinson's Fire Records allowed him do an album on his own terms, and many feel the result represents some of the best-recorded Crudup of all time. His classic songs on the album are re-recorded versions but musically up to par with the original versions, benefiting from improvements in recording technique and the artistically free atmosphere of the sessions, and this collection includes many additional sides not available on the original album. Includes "That's All Right (Mama)," "Look On Yonder Wall," "Rock Me Mama," "Mean Ol' Frisco," and 17 more!
