Bobby Parker - Watch Your Step
Bobby Parker is a guitarist who played with everyone from the pioneers of popular Rock'n'Roll such as Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry and Little Richard to Soul legends Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson. Somehow he also found the time to record Watch Your Step in 1961. On it, you can hear both the rock and the soul sounds coming though strong. Despite being an absolute killer cut, Watch Your Step only made it to #51 on the charts. However, as some sort of consolation, it's been cited as an influence for The Beatles' I Feel Fine and Day Tripper. You can also hear it's scorching opening guitar riff in Led Zeppelin's Moby Dick.
