Wynonie Harris: Bloodshot Eyes: The Best of Wynonie Harris [Rhino, 1994]
On record, Harris is damn near the only "unsung hero of rock 'n' roll" whose dick stays as hard as Nick Tosches says it does. An unusually exuberant sinner, he's as arrogant and probably mean in his way as Jerry Lee Lewis or Wilson Pickett, but with warmth (as opposed to mere heat) and grace (as opposed to mere rhythm) to make up for the bad stuff. His crowning achievement is his filthiest, a commercially doomed paean to cunt-juice and jism called "Keep On Churnin'." He would have bottled those fluids if he could have. And he liked whiskey even better.
