  Rocket 88 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Rocket 88" is the prototype for hundreds of other rock and roll records in musical style and lineup, not to mention its lyrical theme, in which an automobile serves as a metaphor for romantic prowess.
The claim that "Rocket 88" was the first rock and roll record is perhaps overstated, but it was the second-biggest rhythm and blues single of 1951 and much more influential than some other "first" claimants.
"Rocket 88" was successfully covered by the country music group Bill Haley and the Saddlemen early in Bill Haley's career, which led to his own impact on popular music with "Rock Around the Clock".

Though the Rocket 88 is rated at 20 watts per channel, these are, as the saying goes, big triode watts, and so this little amp should work well with a good variety of speaker systems, for enjoyable music listening purposes.
The Rocket 88 is designed with very conservative low voltages on its tubes, so your choice of tubes should last a long time (perhaps 5 years of normal usage).
Thus, the Rocket 88 is easy on your budget when you first buy it, and will continue to be easy on your tube budget over the years.

 Amazon.com: The Best of Bill Haley and His Comets 1951-1954: Music: Bill Haley & His Comets   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Clearly, Haley saw this RandB style music as his fugure, given by his own cover of Jackie Brenston's "Rocket 88", which is considered by some to be the first RandR song and not "Rock Around the Clock," and Jimmy Preston's #6 RandB hit, "Rock This Joint," both included here.
Haley covered Jackie Brenston's epochal "Rocket '88" within a few months of its 1951 release with his Western swing outfit, Bill Haley & the Saddlemen, and after that it didn't take long for Haley and his bandmates to make with the boogie and add some strong proto-rockabilly material to their set.
The result was a string of regional hits for the Essex label that eventually led to Haley's signing to Decca Records and the recording of the song that became both his greatest triumph and the millstone he could never escape.

With a musical repertoire that combines numerous Mitch Woods originals with some favorites from the past, the band has forged their own brand of music they call "rock-a-boogie", due to its combination of RandB, jump, swing, boogie woogie, and early rock n' roll.
