    It's ironic that Gene Simmons of Kiss doesn't think N.W.A. should be in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Rock 'n roll was originally the music of African-Americans. Rock 'n roll probably wouldn't have even gotten its name if it wasn't for this 1948 R&B hit by Wynonie Harris. "Good Rockin' Tonight" started a fad of records about "rocking" in R&B in the late 1940s, and whites started listening to that music around 1954. :)

    If memory serves me well, this might have been the first record to fade out at the end instead of concluding abruptly.

    I seem to remember growing up to a sanitised Pat Boone version of this. Boone had several hits where he covered Black hits of this era. To my English middle-class ears, they sounded great. .... but it was good to discover the originals.

Lyrics

Well, I heard the news, there's good rockin' tonight
Well, I heard the news, there's good rockin' tonight
I'm gonna hold my baby as tight as I can
Tonight she'll know I'm a mighty, mighty man
