RAMBLIN' ON MY MIND New Perspectives On The Blues Edited by David Evans ● BOOK $26.95
Paper, 430 pages, counts as six CDs for shipping
This compilation of essays, edited by renowned blues authority David Evans, takes the study of the blues to a welcome new level. Distinguished scholars and well-established writers from such diverse backgrounds as musicology, anthropology, musicianship, and folklore, join together to examine blues as literature, music, personal expression, and cultural product. Among the topics covered are the relationship between African music and the blues, commercial vaudeville and the growth of the blues, regional clustering of how blues guitarists held their hands, an analysis of Son House's Dry Spell Blues, Ella Fitzgerald's interpretation of St Louis Blues, war themes in blues and gospel and more. The discussions are often quite scholarly and many will not appeal to the casual blues fan but there is a great deal of food for thought in these essays.

 
RECORD MAKERS AND BREAKERS Voices Of The Independent Rock 'n' Roll Pioneers by John Broven ● BOOK $49.98
Hardbound, 584 pages, counts as 12 CDs for shipping
John Broven is the ideal person to write on the history and development of the independent record business. He has been collecting, researching and writing about the subject for almost 50 years and has conducted hundreds of first hand interviews which form the backbone of this large (10" x 7") and endlessly fascinating book. It traces the industry from its raw regional beginnings in the 1940ís with blues, R&B and hillbilly music through its decline in the 1960ís, combines narrative history with extensive oral history material from numerous recording pioneers. The rich oral histories provide abundant on-the-ground information about how the labels nurtured the blues, R&B and hillbilly talent that ultimately resulted in rock 'n' roll, often losing that talent to major labels. It discusses the role of pressing plants, distribution centers, jukebox circuits, and disk jockey networks; financing these operations, often on shoestring budgets; and creating innovative approaches (including payola) to develop an audience for the records. This exceptional volume contains Brovenís interviews with major players in the independent music scene, including Joe Bihari of Modern Records; Marshall Chess of Chess Records; Jerry Wexler, Ahmet Ertegun, and Miriam Bienstock of Atlantic Records; Sam Phillips of Sun Records; Art Rupe of Specialty Records; and many, many more. Broven is a lucid and entertaining writer and wherever possible allows the protagonists to speak for themselves. This is one of the most important and interesting books on popular music to come along in a long time.

VARIOUS ARTISTS Tropical Music 68.384 Legends Of The American Folk Blues Festivals ● DVD $31.98
36 musical performances + interviews, black & white, 156 mins, very highly recommended
Great collection of live performances by some of the artists who appeared on the American Folk Blues Festivals, organized by Horst Lippmann & Fritz Rau, that toured Europe in 1967, 1968 and 1969. A few of these performances have appeared as bonus tracks on the four Hip-O DVDs which were drawn from the 1963 through 1966 festivals but most of this material has never appeared in any video format before. Filmed by German Television the 1967 show features three superb performances by Little Walter with Hound Dog Taylor on guitar, Dillard Crume on bass and Odie Payne Jr. on drums. This group also backs up Koko Taylor on four fine performances and Hound Dog rocks out with Shake Your Moneymaker. There is also one song each from three giants of Mississippi Delta blues - Bukka White, Son House & Skip James and there are two cuts from the always enjoyable Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee. The 1968 show opens with John Lee Hooker doing a fine solo version of It Serves Me Right To Suffer and is then joined by an all star band (T-Bone Walker/ piano, Eddie Taylor/ guitar, Walter Horton /harmonica, Jerome Arnold/ bass & J.C. Lewis) for two songs. This group returns later with T-Bone singing and playing guitar on two songs and John Lee doing Shake It Baby. The king of the nine string guitar Big Joe Williams is featured on two superb performances and the show is rounded out by performances by Walter Horton, Curtis Jones and Jimmy Reed though, unfortunately, Reed was not having one of his good days and his performance is rather embarassing. The 1969 show mostly features artists who had recently recorded for Arhoolie and includes some fabulous performances by Earl Hooker, Juke Boy Bonner, Clifton & Cleveland Chenier, John Jackson and Alex Moore. There is also an (all too brief) performance by Magic Sam and his band and one song by Carey Bell accompanied by Sam and his band. Video and sound quality is generally excellent and the DVD comes with a 52 page booklet with extensive notes on the background to the festivals and all the artists. Wonderful stuff! (FS)

 
VARIOUS ARTISTS Tropical Music 68.363 Legends Of Spiritual & Gospel, Folk & Country ● DVD $31.98
Though not as well known as their American Folk Blues Festivals entrepreneurs Horst Lippman and Fritz Rau introduced Europe to some outstanding gospel performers on two tours in 1965 and 1966 and outstanding old time country and folk performers in 1966 and their live performances are presented here on video for the first time. From the gospel shows we have Bishop Kelsey, Inez Andrews & The Andrewettes, The Five Blind Boys Of Mississippi, The Harmonizing Four, The Dorothy Norwood Singers and The Gospelaires and from the folk and country show we have The New Lost City Ramblers, Roscoe Holcomb, Cyprien Landreneau, Cousin Emmy and The Stanley Brothers. I havent had a chance to view these yet but I remember seeing the 1966 gospel show in England and it was spectacular!

 

NEW COMPACT DISCS

 
CEDRIC BURNSIDE & LIGHTNIN' MALCOLM Delta Groove 127 2 Man Wrecking Crew ● CD $15.98
High energy, stripped down, Mississippi juke joint blues featuring drummer and vocalist Cedric Burnside (grandson of the great Mississippi bluesman R.L. Burnside) and up and coming white vocalist and guitarist Lightnin' Malcolm who has immersed himself in the juke joint Mississippi blues for many years. They are joined on several tracks by harmonica player Jason Ricci who has worked with Junior Kimbrough and a few tracks feature background vocals by Bekka Bramlett and Etta Britt. All songs are originals by the duo and include a tribute to R.L. Burnside.

 
HONEYBOY EDWARDS Earwig 4953 Roamin' And Ramblin' ● CD $15.98
19 tracks, 53 min., good The majority of tracks were recorded in 2007 when David "Honeyboy" Edwards was only 92 years old. In that same year he played over 100 gigs in seven countries, so Edwards has clearly been taking the right combination of vitamins. And the good news is that this album focusses on duets with the likes of such notable bluesmen as Walter Horton, Billy Branch, Bobby Rush, and others. And yet, Edwards, as impressive as he is for 92, doesn't quite have the fire he used to or the power he needs. For whatever reason, the folks at Earwig have included two Alan Lomax-recorded cuts from 1942, (The Army Blues, Freight Train Tale), and, not surprisingly, the difference is fairly dramatic. Still, at 92, the guy plays a hell of a guitar. (JC)

 
EDDIE "ONE STRING" JONES/ EDWARD HAZLETON Takoma (UK) 1023 One String Blues ● CD $22.98
15 tracks, 53 min, highly recommended
Available again. On the surface, the idea of someone performing Ernest Lawlars-Memphis Minnie's Me And My Chauffeur ('41), Big Joe Williams' Baby Please Don't Go ('35), Walter Davis' Come Back Baby ('40) and Hambone Willie Newbern's Roll And Tumble Blues ('29) on a one-string guitar (using an old whiskey bottle as a slide) may sound very limiting but I'm here to tell you, it's an experience! I first heard this record when Takoma Records rescued the original 1964 Portents album from oblivion. The CD reissue includes three additional sides by Jones not previously issued. It also contains the track, The Dozens, that Captain Beefheart refers to as "He Was A-F--kin'". Recorded in 1960 on the streets of Los Angeles by Frederick Usher, Eddie Jones (if that's his real name) was not the first Afro-American to record on such an instrument. That honor may just belong to One-String Sam (who recorded I Need A Hundred Dollars in 1956). Those of you who are interested in the history of Afro-American one-string instruments should read David Evans' 16 page 1971 article in Western Folklore #29. The remaining six tracks (3 previously unissued) belongs to one Edward Hazelton, featuring his amateur harmonica & vocals on such standards as Motherless Children Have A Hard Time/ Poor Boy and Red River Blues.

KING IVORY Blues Factory 47003 Beating The Odds ● CD $10.98
21 tracks, recommended
A collection of recordings devoted to the work of singer, pianist, drummer and entrepreneur Ivory Lee Semiens aja King Ivory. The first 10 tracks are from 1994 and '95 sessions featuring a fine selection of modern blues with a downhome flavor featuring mostly original songs by Ivory with a fine band including Texas legend Joey Long on guitar & harmonica, a solid horn section and accordionist Wilfred Chevis appears on a few tracks giving them a zydeco flavor. The remaining tracks were cut in the early 60s for Ivory's own Ivory label with Ivory producing and playing drums and doing a couple of vocals. The best tracks are the two with Hop Wilson on steel guitar and Lightnin' Hopkins' fine War Is Starting Again, the rest is generally undistingusihed including sides by Big H. Williams, Helen Wilson, D.C. Bender, Roosevelt Hopes, Vincent Franks and others. (FS)

 
J.B. LENOIR Snapper Blues 33 Alabama Blues ● CD $9.98
16 tracks, 49 mins, recommended
Same as JSP 2154 "One Of These Mornings" but cheaper. Reissue of LP JSP 1105 with five bonus cuts. This is a fascinating album of previously unissued recordings. The first seven tracks are from a demo tape made by Willie Dixon in 1962 and features Willie and J.B. chatting and singing songs. J.B. accompanies himself on acoustic guitar and includes a few old songs that he hadn't recorded elsewhere. The music is enjoyable and the repartee between J.B. and Dixon is delightful. Most of the remaining nine tracks are from a live concert with J.B. and his acoustic guitar (plus occasional drums from Fred Below) and include some of his more intensely personal and political songs - Alabama Blues/ The Whale/ Remove The Rope, etc. The last three tracks seem to be from a different source and are of lower quality than the rest but are worthwhile performances. (FS)

 
JOE LIGGINS Acrobat ACMCD 4236 Jukebox Hits, 1945-1951 ● CD $15.98
21 tracks, highly recommended
Truly a pioneer of Rhythm & Blues, Joe Liggins is probably best known for his much covered smash The Honeydripper, which you get here in parts one & two as well as other classics like I've Got a Right to Cry/ Dripper's Ball/ Know My Love is True, and more great originals. Liggins did fine renditions of others' material as well with songs like Duke Ellington's Caravan, old time tunes like Sweet Georgia Brown, and Darktown Strutter's Ball, and one of his most famous records, Rag Mop, which was previously a Country hit for Johnny Lee Wills. A fine collection and an artist that fans of classic R&B will want to have represented in their collections. (JM)

 
 
LITTLE WILLIE LITTLEFIELD Oldie Blues 7006 Yellow Boogie & Blues ● CD $22.98
19 tracks, recommended
Fine set of sides recorded by this Texas born singer and piano player recorded in The Netherlands in 1994. Born in 1931 Willie started his recording career in 1948 and these recordings show him to still be an excellent performer. He has a warm, engaging and expressive vocal style and is an exceptional pianist - equally impressive on a hot boogie or slow blues. He is given discreet and effective accompaniments by producer Job Zomer on clarinet, sax and drums and Michael Burger on bass. The material is a mix of Littlefield originals and covers of blues and R&B standards and shows his versatility with a bluesy take on Floyd Cramer's Last Date, an offbeat but very effective version of the country standard Me And Bobby McGee and a sensitive rendition of the pop ballad Lucky Old Sun. A most enjoyable set. (FS)

 
JOE HILL LOUIS JSP JSPCD 4208 King Of The One Man Bands - Key Postwar Cuts, 1949-54 ● CD $23.98
Wonderful two CD set featuring 57 tracks recorded between 1949 and 1954 by the greatest of all the blues one man bands - Memphis bluesman Joe Hill Louis. Although about half the tracks are on the previously issued CDs on Ace and Bear Family (Ace 803 - $18.98, Bear Family 15524 - $21.98) this is worth it for the tracks not on those compilation which includes his first cuts for Columbia in 1946 and his second from last recording for the tiny Memphis label Vendor in 1954.
JOE HILL LOUIS: 4th/ A' Jumpin' And A' Shufflin'/ And Beale/ Big Legged Woman/ Blue In The Morning/ Boogie In The Park/ Boogie In The Park/ Chocolate Blonde/ Cold Chills/ Cold Chills (Alt)/ Come Back Baby/ Don't Do It Again/ Don't Trust Your Best Friend/ Early In The/ Eyesight To The Blind/ Floor/ Get Up Off It/ Goin' Away Blues/ Going Down Slow/ Going Down To Louisiana/ Good Morning Little Angel/ Got Me A New Woman/ Gotta/ Gotta Go Baby/ Gotta Go Baby (Alt)/ Heartache Baby/ Highway 99/ Hydramatic Woman/ I Feel Like A Million/ I Love My Baby/ I'm A Poor Boy/ Jack Pot/ Jealous Man/ Joe Hill Boogie (1951)/ Joe Hill Boogie (1954)/ Joe's Jump/ Just Plain Tired/ Keep Away From My Baby/ Keep Your Arms Around Me Mama/ Let You Go/ Mistreat Me Woman/ Morning/ Nappy Head Woman/ On The/ Peace Of Mind/ Railroad Blues/ Ridin' Home/ Ruthie Mae/ She Comes To See Me Sometime/ She Got Me Walkin'/ She May Be/ She's Taking All My Money/ Street Walkin'/ Sweetest/ Sweetest Gal In Town/ The Way You Treat Me/ Ticket/ Tiger Man/ Train/ Walkin' Talkin' Blues/ We All Gotta Go Sometime/ Western Union Man/ Woman/ Woman I Ever Seen/ Yours (Sweetest Girl In Town)

 
MISSISSIPPI FRED MCDOWELL Snapper Blues 035 London Calling ● CD $9.98
14 tracks, 64 min, highly recommended
Originally released on one and half Red Lightnin' LPs, this stunning performance captured Fred McDowell at his peak in front of a small stage at The Mayfield Hotel, London, UK. in 1969. Accompanying himself on electric guitar he performs stellar versions of some of his trademark songs like 61 Highway/ Red Cross Store/ Write Me Of A Few Of Your Lines and Shake 'Em On Down as well as a couple of less frequently performed songs like Evil Hearted Woman/ I Asked For Whiskey, She Brought Me Gasoline (actually a version of Big Road Blues) and Standing At The Burying Ground. On the traditional spiritual When I Lay My Burden Down he shares the vocal with Britain's finest blues singer Jo Ann Kelley who works extremely well with Fred though occasionally the lyrics get jumbled. At one point Fred announces "I'm really enjoying myself here tonight" - you will too! These recordings have been reissued on CD several times before so you may want to check your collection. (FS)
MISSISSIPPI FRED MCDOWELL: 61 Highway/ Evil Hearted Woman/ Glory Hallelujah/ I Asked For Whiskey, She Gave Me Gasoline/ Kokomo Blues/ Louise/ My Babe/ My Baby Done Me Wrong/ Red Cross Store Blues/ Shake 'Em On Down/ Standing At The Burying Ground/ Waves Of The Water/ When I Lay My Burden Down/ Write Me A Few Of Your Lines

 
JACKIE PAYNE & THE STEVE EDMONSON BAND Delta Groove 123 Overnight Sensation ● CD $15.98
13 tracks, 60 min., highly recommended
The title is Payne's little joke, the first word anyhow, since he and Edmonson have many decades in the business. But the second word is no joke, and neither is the soulful blues that this band has been sending out into the night. (Payne and Edmonson met while both men were playing in the Dynatones, but their blues credential are older and deeper than that popular outfit.) Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, the JPSEB have a sharp horn section and write their own songs, for the most part. Edmonson's guitar is concise and lyrical, never showy; Payne's singing (he also writes all the lyrics) is, more than anything else, what lends the group the soulfulness, and it sounds like it's being imported direct from Muscle Shoals. Fans of Bobby Bland and O.V. Wright should find plenty to get excited about here. Covers such as I Feel Like Going Home by Charlie Rich and You're Good Thing (Is About To End by Hayes-Porter reinforce what's special about the JPSEB. These guys are never in danger of sounding like every other blues band, are not interested in the usual suspects when it comes to covers. It doesn't hurt that Payne could sing soulfulness into a Carpenters song, either. This third outing of the band was one of the best new blues album of 2008. Don't miss it if you missed it. (JC)

 
ELDER UTAH SMITH & OTHERS Casequarter 104 I Got Two Wings - Incidents And Anecdotes Of The Two- ● CD $19.98
Amazing book and CD combination documenting the life and music of sanctified electric guitar preacher Utah Smith whose three released 78s are among the most exciting guitar accompanied gospel recordings in the post war era. For a long time Smith was a mystery until African-American music scholar Lynn Abbot started researching his background and the result is this remarkable 127 page book and companion 18 track CD. "I Got Two Wings" places Smith within the Church Of God In Christ tradition along with performers like Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Elder David Curry and Rev. F.W. McGee. The book is filled with anecdotes and first hand remembrances and includes many rare and unpublished photos, copies of posters and other memorabilia as well as a discography. The accompanying CD features all the previously known Smith recordings along with five previously unknown performances along with relevant performances by Tharpe, Curry, McGee and Smith's daughter, Sister Sarah James & The Sanctified Six.

 
DAVE SPECTER Delmark 794 Live In Chicago ● CD $14.98
10 tracks, 67 min., highly recommended
The first 7 cuts were recorded live at Buddy Guy's Legends on 21 August 2007, while the last 3 come from a set at Rosa's Blues Lounge the night before, both Chicago shows, of course. Specter, whose been recording for Delmark for 17 years, has dabbled and experimented in every kind of blues, and this release in no exception. He covers Tom T. Hall' How I Got To Memphis and Chuck WIllis' classic Feel So Bad, and Tad Robinson sings the hell out of both, but as usual, the star is the guitar and the man behind it. Specter is joined here by drummer Marty Binder (who has kept the beat for Junior Wells and Albert Collins, among others) and by bassist Harlan Terson and keyboard player John Kattke, both former Otis Rush sidemen; and by his regular guitar wizard Jesse Johnson. Sharon Lewis adds her impressive vocals to the Rosa's show on a pair of songs she penned (the rambunctious In Too Deep and the slow and moody Angel). Good stuff, as usual, and not likely to disappoint. (JC)

 
VARIOUS ARTISTS Ace CDCHD 1215 Toast Of The Coast - 1950s R&B From Dolphin's, Vol. 2 ● CD $18.98
Complementing Ace CDCHD 1179 ("On With The Jive" - $18.98) this is a second collection of West Coast blues and R&B recorded for the late R&B entrepreneur John Dolphin and concentrates on rare and unissued material that he produced for his various labels. This volume includes 24 tracks - many of them unreleased - several by unknown performers. It includes sides by Pokey Harris & The Sophisticats, Memphis Slim, Linda Hayes, Jimmy Witherspoon, Sonny Harper, Little Margie, Vernon Anders, Peppermint Harris, Tap Anthony & His All Star Band, Big Boy Groves, Little Eve and others. Includes booklet with extensive notes by Jim Dawson.

VARIOUS ARTISTS Blue Shoe 162004 Last Of The Great Mississippi Delta Bluesmen ● CD $15.98
18 tracks, 76 min., recommended
In which four elder statesmen of the Mississippi blues take the stage at the Majestic Theater in Dallas on 16 October 2004. Two of them, David "Honeyboy" Edwards and Robert Lockwood, Jr., are associated with the legendary Robert Johnson--Lockwood learned guitar from Johnson, his mother's significant other. Henry James Townsend and Joe Willie "Pinetop" Perkins, who played in the Muddy Waters Band once upon a time, make up the other half. Their ages at the time ranged from a youthful 89 to 94 years, so while it's no good pretending that they were at the height of their musical powers, their performances require no apologies, and their bands sound great. The booklet does provide notes, but they are mostly general and would have benefitted from more specific information about the show. Songs include Apron Strings, Catfish Blues/ If I Asked You/ Blind Girl Blues/ Sweet Home Chicago/ Country Boy/ Kansas City, and more. (JC)

 
VARIOUS ARTISTS Boulevard 1021 The R&B Years, 1942-45 - Volume 1 ● CD $19.98
The latest in this great series from Boulevard features 40 recordings made between 1942 and 1945 of blues, R&B and vocal group sounds. The music is dominated by urban and jazzy stylings and includes big hits like Take It And Git It by Andy Kirk & His Orch., Don't Get Around Much Anymore by The Ink Spots, Flying Home by Lionel Hampton, What's The Use Of Getting Sober by Louis Jordan and more along with titles that have become standards even though they didn't make the charts like S.K. Blues by Saunders King, He's A Jelly Roll Baker by Lonnie Johnson and Mean Old World by T-Bone Walker along with obscure sides like Mabel Robinson's cover of Memphis Minnie's Me And My Chauffeuar, Don't Stop Now by Bonnie Davis and Boogie #1 by The Sepia Tones. Other artists include Walter Brown, Joe Turner, Cab Calloway, Big Bill Broonzy, Buddy Johnson, Erskine Hawkins, Jimmy Rushing, Rosetta Tharpe, Nat "King" Cole, Eddie Vinson and many more.

VARIOUS ARTISTS Dust-To-Digital 12 Art Of Field Recording, Vol. 2: 50 Years Of Traditional ● CD $66.98
Four CDs, 107 tracks, over 5 hours, essential
Congratulations to Dust-To-Digital for the Grammy Award for Best Historical Album for the first volume of "The Art Of Field Recording, Vol. 1" (Dust-To-Digital 08 - $66.98). Now, volume 2 is here and I wouldn't be surprised if it also wins the award. It's another fabulous collection of field recordings collected by folk musician, painter and art professor Art Rosenbaum over the past 50 years. Art has travelled extensively in the Eastern and South Eastern and a number of his recordings have been reissued on LP and CD but this is the first in-depth collection of the music he has collected. This is a real treasure trove and a full descripition of its varied contents would take up way too much space. Suffice to say, the four CDs contain 107 tracks with over five hours of great music. Disc one is a broad survey of the recordings including blues, fiddle tunes, Cajun music, traditional ballads and more. Disc two is devoted to religious music both black and white ranging from solo unaccompanied vocals to a black gospel quartet to sacred harp to sacred steel and much more. The third disc features accompanied songs and ballads featuring both white and African-American artists including vocals accompanied by fiddle, guitar, banjo and small groups and the fourth features unaccompanied songs and ballads. Rosenbaum recorded many artists that were not recorded by other researchers and remarkably has continued to find some superb genuine traditional musicians in the 21st century. When I first heard Tom Bryant's superb rendition of Blind Willie McTell's Broke Down Engine I assumed that it had been recorded in the 1960s but was astonished to find that it was recorded in 2007. Bryant is related to the great Georgia bluesman Curley Weaver and although this is McTell's song Bryant gives it his own unique treatment. The set comes with a 96 page book with detailed track by track notes by Rosenbaum along with over 100 illustrations including dozens of artist photos along with Art's own evocative paintings and drawings. Each disc comes in a cardboard sleeve with a full color rendition of one of his paintings and another painting adorns the front cover. Like the first volume this is an absolutely indispensable addition to any collection of American vernacular music. (FS)

VARIOUS ARTISTS Sundown 4001 Juicy Harmonica ● CD $16.98
26 tracks, 66 mins, highly recommended
Great collection of down home harmonica blues from the 50s and 60s. It includes some familiar titles like Tough Times by John Brim (with some of Jimmy Reed's best harmonica work), Goin' Back To Orleans by Jesse & Buzzy and Chicago bluesman Dusty Brown's great Well You Know but there are lots of great obscurities - some making their first CD appearance including the wonderful two sided Working Man/ All Because Of You by Long Tall Lester with fine harp from Raful Neal, three sides from underrated West Coast bluesman Model "T" Slim (Elmon Mickle) who learned to play harmonica from John Lee "Sonny Boy" Williamson whose influence is strongly evident on his tracks and more from Levi Seabury, Little Shy Guy & The Hot Rods (one of the best sides by Shy Guy Douglas), Mo-Jo Buford, Little Daddy Walton and Sons and others. Sound is excellent and booklet has label shots of some of the discs featured here. (FS)

VARIOUS ARTISTS Testament TCD 5021 Bottleneck Blues ● CD $11.98
22 tracks, 61 min., highly recommended
Back in print. This is the long lost Testament album originally scheduled to be issued on Testament 2215 and devoted to bottleneck blues. This collection ranges from the one string "diddley bow" of Mississippi rural bluesman Napoleon Strickland to the electric Chicago blues of J.B. Hutto. Big Joe Williams does one of his amazing on-the-stop blues (Traveling Blues) with a nice extro to producer Pete Welding. The Johnny Shines' track Crucial Moment, one of those blues that never makes mention of the title but captures the moment, alone is worth the price of admission. Other highlights include Cryin' Won't Help You (Robert Nighthawk), and Worryin' Woman Blues (David "Honeyboy" Edwards). Most of the tracks are new to CD, with a few by Fred McDowell, Blind Connie Williams, J. B. Hutto being reissued before on Testament. Other artists include John Lee Granderson, Robert "Nighthawk" Johnson, Herb Quinn, John Littlejohn and Jack Owens. Fans of bottleneck guitar should seriously consider this sampler of 15 different artist, which covers all the different styles that CD note writer David Evans describes so well. (EL)

 
BUKKA WHITE Aim 007 Mississippi Blues ● CD $14.98
11 tracks, highly recommended
Back in stock. CD issue of Takoma 7001, originally Takoma 1001 from 1963. After a nearly 20 year absence in the music world, Bukka was "rediscovered" to help fuel the folk/ blues revival of the early 60's. These exceptional recordings of 1963 are the first he'd made since '44. There are 11 pieces here, 9 on National Steel guitar, Drunk Man Blues on piano, and the spoken Remembrance Of Charlie Patton. Includes a beautiful version of Poor Boy Long Way From Home, that he'd redo later that year as one of my all time favorite pieces, Jesus Died On The Cross To Save The World for Arhoolie.Also includes Shake 'Em On Down/ Baby Please Don't Go/ Parchman Farm Blues, etc. Includes new notes by Peter Noble.

BUKKA WHITE Snapper Blues 22 Fixin' To Die ● CD $9.98
20 tracks, essential
Bukka White's recordings cut in 1930, 1937, 1939 and 1940 are among the greatest country blues ever recorded so it is a pleasure to have them available again. Bukka, in addition to also being a great Mississippi singer & guitar player was also a brilliant songwriter whose lyrics were more inventive and original than those of many of his contemporaries - much of them based on personal experiences. Several songs deal with the subject of sickness & death and there are several songs about his stay at the dreadful Parchman Farm prison and other events in his life. All this is sung in Bukka's beautiful rich voice with its powerful vibrato and effective use of slurs and slides. He accompanies himself with rhythmic, complex guitar parts with occasional use of slide. Excellent sound and informative notes. This material has been reissued several times before but if you don't already have it you really should! (FS)

 
SONNY BOY WILLIAMSON JSP JSPCD 77101 The Later Years, 1939-1947 ● CD $28.98
Four CD, 104 tracks, approx 5 hours, essential
The second and final volume of the complete recordings of one of the most popular and influential blues singers and harmonica players of all time. This four CD set has 104 tracks recorded between 1939 and 1947. Reiterating from my review of volume 1 John Lee "Sonny Boy" Williamson was a wonderful singer with a warm down home style and a brilliant and innovative harmonica player whose playing was to redefine blues harmonica playing until the emergence of Little Walter who built on what Sonny Boy had created. His playing, singing and songs were to prove an immense influence on subsequent generations of blues performers and contributed to the ascendancy of the blues scene in Chicago where he was based and there's no doubt he would have been a major figure in the 50s had he not met an untimely demise in 1948. Although some of his most famous songs are based on songs originated by other artists, Sonny Boy invested them with his own distinctive approach which resulted in them being the template for future versions. This set shows Sonny Boy's style moving away from a rural approach to a more agressive urban style with accompaniments by larger groups, often including bass and drums. His singing and playing are consistently stunning, with not a single mediocre song on the set, and if you're a Chicago blues fan you'll recognize many songs from their later covers like My Little Machine/ Sloppy Drunk Blues/ MIllion Years Blues (covered by B.B. King as My Heart Beats Like A Hammer/ My Black Name Blues/ Check Up On My Baby Blues (covered by the "other" Sonny Boy Williamson) and others. There are a couple of interesting war songs Win The War Blues and we Got To Win. In addition to all the great songs under his own name we have him accompanying Yank Rachell on 16 tracks including Yank's Loudella Blues, later covered by Jimmy Rogers and 23 tracks accompanying the great singer and 9 string guitarist Big Joe Williams - these are all superb performances. Accompanimnents include a who's who of Chicago musicians including Big Bill Broonzy, Joshua Altheimer, Blind John Davis, Ransom Knowling, Washboard Sam, Jump Jackson, Big Maceo, Tampa Red, Willie Dixon, Judge Riley, Eddie Boyd, Willie Lacey and others. Excellent sound and informative notes round out an essential package for any blues fan. (FS)
