No More Doggin’, Roscoe Gordon (1952) One of the original Memphis “Beale Streeters,” Roscoe Gordan‘s breakout hit Booted made No. 1 on the R&B singles charts in 1952; No More Doggin‘ made No. 2 the same year. Gordon (and Fats Domino) influenced Jamaican pianist Theophilus Beckford, and Gordon’s back-beat style is credited as the foundation of Jamaican ska, bluebeat (Jamaican R&B) and reggae.
Go taste-tripping with synsepalum dulcificum. Everyone should try a “miracle berry” at least once.
