Ike Turner's Kings of Rhythm - Rocket 88

Rocket 88 was first recorded at Sam Phillips' recording studio in Memphis, Tennessee, on 3 March or 5 March 1951 (accounts differ). The recording was credited to Jackie Brenston and his Delta Cats, who were actually Ike Turner's Kings of Rhythm. It has been claimed by Phillips and some music critics to be the "first rock and roll song".
