  1. Roy Milton was one of the most important figures in the development of rhythm and blues. He is often thought of as the “West Coast equivalent” of Louis Jordan. Like Jordan his musical roots lay in the big band era, and also like Jordan he formed a small jump combo in the s which went on to great chart success in the s and early s.
  2. Drummer Roy Milton enjoyed a string of hits with the band he led, His Solid Senders, ranging from rhythm & blues ballads to swinging uptempo cuts. "Information Blues" is very much one of the latter. It features hard rocking, riffing saxophones, swinging piano, and great alto and tenor saxophone breaks, from John Kelson and Ben Waters respectively.
