Track Listing - Disc 3. He began traveling frequently to Kansas City, where he paid close attention to blues shouters , including Jimmy Rushing and Big Joe Turner. His break in Los Angeles was at a nightclub owned by Curtis Mosby.
It was here that Harris became known as "Mr. During the —44 musicians' strike , Harris was unable to pursue a recording career, relying instead on personal appearances. Performing almost continuously, in late he appeared at the Rhumboogie Club in Chicago. He was spotted by Lucky Millinder , who asked him to join his band on tour. Harris joined on March 24, , when the band was in the middle of a week-long residency at the Regal in Chicago.
It was during this performance that Harris first publicly performed " Who Threw the Whiskey in the Well " a song recorded two years earlier by Doc Wheeler 's Sunset Orchestra. After the band's stint at the Apollo, they moved on to their regular residency at the Savoy Ballroom, also in Harlem. Entering a recording studio for the first time, Harris sang on two of the five cuts recorded that day, "Hurry, Hurry" and "Who Threw the Whiskey in the Well", for Decca Records.
The embargo on shellac during World War II had not yet been rescinded, and release of the record was delayed. Harris's success and popularity grew as Millinder's band toured the country, but he and Millinder had a falling out over money, and in September , while playing in San Antonio, Texas , Harris quit the band. Three weeks later, upon hearing of Harris's separation from the band, a Houston promoter refused to allow Millinder's band to perform. Millinder called Harris and agreed to pay his asking price of one hundred dollars a night.
The promoter reinstated the booking, but it was the final time Harris and Millinder worked together. Bull Moose Jackson replaced Harris as the vocalist in the band.
The song remained on the charts for almost five months, also becoming popular with white audiences. In California the success of the song opened doors for Harris. Since the contract with Decca was with Millinder, Harris was a free agent and could choose from the recording contracts with which he was presented. Harris' band was assembled by Johnny Otis , and the group recorded the rpm record "Around the Clock".
Although not a chart-topper, the song became popular, and cover versions were recorded by many artists, including Willie Bryant , Jimmy Rushing and Big Joe Turner.
Harris went on to record sessions for other labels, including Apollo , Bullet and Aladdin. His greatest success came when he signed for Syd Nathan 's King label, where he enjoyed a series of hits on the U.
In , Harris recorded two singles with the pianist Herman "Sonny" Blount, who later earned fame as the eclectic jazz composer and bandleader Sun Ra. Some reviewers state that Good Rocking Tonight, by Roy Brown or by Harris  is one of the contenders for the title of "first rock'n'roll record".
The Project adds that "the song has also been credited with being the most successful record to that point to use the word 'rock' not as a euphemism for sex, but as a descriptive for the musical style.
Harris transitioned between several recording contracts between and In Harris resettled for the last time in Los Angeles. He was the subject of a biography by Tony Collins.
