THOMAS MAUPIN Dust-To-Digital DVD 14 Let Your Feet Do The Talkin' ● DVD $19.98
DVD, 27 min plus extras, very highly recommended
Stewart Copeland directed this uplifting documentary on American buck dancing legend Thomas Maupin. (Buck dancing is a form of clog dancing that emphasizes the downbeat and looks and sounds like a cousin of tap.) The film follows Maupin as he performs at the West Virginia Folk Festival and as he accepts the Trailblazer award at the Uncle Dave Macon Days festival. But the most moving footage, so to speak, is that between Maupin's grandson Daniel, who, despite the challenge of Cerebral Palsey, plays the banjo in the "songster" tradition, to which his grandfather belongs. The two become devoted to each other and even perform together onstage. The "Special Features" are uncharacteristically worthwhile, and include a 45-minute dance workshop given by Maupin at the Uncle Dave Macon Days festival; a 1947 documentary film about the origin of the banjo in American folk music, To Hear Your Banjo Play, written by Alan Lomax and narrated by Pete Seeger, featuring Woodie Guthrie, Sonny Terry and others: a 5-minute film by Copeland called Jennifer, about his mother; and more. Excellent. (JC)

 

COMPACT DISCS


CHUCK BERRY Bear Family BCD 17139 Rocks! ● CD $24.98
32 tracks, 80 mins, essential
Over the last couple of years there have been several high-end collections of Chuck Berry's legendary Chess back catalog, issued by Hip-O Select Records, that feature alternate takes and outtakes galore that would keep collectors and dedicated fans happy for hours. This latest compilation, conversely, is aimed strictly at listeners who simply desire to own the man's greatest songs in the best and most cost effective package possible. Those of you already familiar with Bear Family's Rocks series of CDs know what to expect: a superb booklet of liner notes and thorough discography of the songs, and excellent re-mastered sound. What more do you need to know? In chronological order from 1955's Maybellene to 1965's Dear Dad, every hit and popular track is presented in pristine audio fidelity. If you only want one Chuck Berry classics collection, then this is the one to buy. (GMC)

BIG PETE Delta Groove 149 Choice Cuts ● CD $15.98
13 tracks, 56 min., very highly recommended
It would be a huge mistake to assume that the Netherland's own Pieter van der Pluijm (otherwise known as Big Pete), is just another technically proficient but passionless performer of American blues standards. On his American solo debut album, Big Pete offers convincing evidence that he's one of the most exciting bluesman standing. His exuberance and youth push through every track in his harp work and his vocals. And even though the cover sells the album by mentioning the cavalcade of guest musicians, including Kid Ramos, Kim Wilson, Rusty Zinn, Paul Oscher, and other first tear blues performers, Big Pete is the show, and a hell of a show at that. Tracks such as Don't Start Crying Now and Act Like You Love Me are so hot they practically glow in the dark. "Choice Cuts" may well be remembered as the best new blues album of 2011. (JC)

 
BILL BOYD & HIS COWBOY RAMBLERS B.A.C.M. 362 Vol. 2 - When The Sun Goes Down ● CD $14.98
Complementing BACM 049 this is another superb collection of western swing along with some cowboy music and sentimental songs by one of the most popular and most prolific bands. 26 tracks featuring such musical talents as Jesse Ashlock, Lefty Perkins, Cecil Brower, J. R. Chatwell, Knocky Parker, Marvin Montgomery and others they perform songs like On Top Of The Hill/ Pussy, Pussy, Pussy/ Tumblin' Tumbleweeds/ When The Sun Goes Down/ You're Laughin' Up Your Sleeve/ New Six Or Seven Times/ Sweethearts Or Strangers/ Hold On Little Dogies Hold On/ Blues When It Rains and more including an excellent Haywire Mac McClintock medley.

THE CALIFORNIA RAMBLERS Retrieval 79067 The Hottest Of The California Ramblers At Edison ● CD $15.98
18 tracks, 70 mins, highly recommended
The California Ramblers were actually from New York and were a very fluid group with most of the white elite of NY jazz participating at one time or another. They recorded for many labels as The California Ramblers as well as under a variety of pseudonyms but this collection is devoted to sides recorded as The California Ramblers for the Edison record company between 1925 and 1928. The personnel varies from session to session and includes appearances from musicians like Red Nichols, The Dorsey Brothers, Adrian RolliniFud Livingston, Roy Johnston, Mickey Bloom and others. There are several vocals including one by Vernon Dalhart and one by Arthur Fields. Edison was a pioneer in long playing records and many of the tunes here are close to four minutes long and in a few cases, longer! A splendid collection of hot white jazz with superb sound and a great 32 page booklet with extensive notes, rare photos and full discographical info. (FS)

 
ARTHUR CONLEY Kent CDKEND 358 I'm Living Good - The Soul Of Arthur Conley, 1964-1974 ● CD $18.98
24 tracks, 68 mins, very highly recommended
Sometimes an artist is remembered for as a one hit wonder; such a man was Soul singer Arthur Conley, who hit big with Sweet Soul Music in 1967. But Conley was much more than that uptempo number, and he actually excelled on ballads. This collection of B-Sides, album tracks, and non-album 45s is a salute to Conley's artistry, his debt to both Sam Cooke and his mentor Otis Redding, and a valentine to Northern Soul and Southern Soul fans alike. There are many rarities here for collectors, such as the original versions of Where You Lead Me and I'm a Stranger (aka I'm a Lonely Stranger) from 1964, which Conley re-cut for Redding's short-lived label Jotis, in 1965; I Want Your Love, which went unheard until it was found for a 1988 Japanese LP; and Stop Knocking a gem from 1974 that was buried on a Capricorn Records sampler. Make no mistake, this material-from his pre-fame years as well as the years he spent recording for Atco and Capricorn-is magnificent. From the lovely Put Our Love Together to the bouncy Take a Step and the touching Otis tribute Otis Sleep On, none of these songs put a foot wrong; this is a necessary edition to any serious Soul music library. (GMC)

 
CLIFF "UKULELE IKE" EDWARDS Retrieval 79068 Fascinating Rhythm, 1922-1935 ● CD $18.98
Two CDs, 48 tracks, highly recommended
A short time ago there was very little available of the highly popular performer Cliff "Ukulele Ike" Edwards and we now have two in the space of three months! There is very little duplication with the superb Upbeat Jazz compilation issued a while back (Upbeat Jazz 228 - $19.98) and this is even better value for money. On this superb collection he croons a selection of popular songs, risque songs and novelty titles. The material here, recorded between 1922 and 1935 is mostly drawn from commercial recordings including several unissued titles. On many tracks he accompanies himself with lively ukulele work and on some tracks does some of his unique scat singing making his voice sound like a kazoo! The tracks are either solo or find him accompanied by small groups featuring musicians like Red Nichols, Miff Mole, Joe Venuti, Eddie Lang, Dick McDonaough and others. The tracks are presented in chronological order startiung with a 1922 track with Cliff as a member of Ladd's Black Aces and ends with two tracks from 1935 with Cliff accompanied by the male vocal quartet The Four Blackbirds. Sound quality is superb and the 28 page booklet has extensive notes by Chris Ellis, photos and full discographical info. (FS)

 
ROSIE FLORES American Beat 24892 Rosie Flores ● CD $12.98 $7.98
10 tracks, essential
Reissue of Rosie's wonderful 1987 album originally issued on Reprise. Rosie Flores was one of the great new young country singers to emerge in the late 80s. She has a marvelous voice which has the soulful sincerity of Loretta Lynn and the rockabilly urgency of Wanda Jackson. The songs are a mixture of new and old songs - some written by Rosie and her guitarist on some of these sessions James Intveld. The originals include the Latin flavored Midnight To Moonlight with accordion by David Hidalgo and the hard driving Heartbreak Train - a version which appeared on the legendary "Town South Of Bakersfield" collection. There is also a fine version of Freddie Hart's Lovin' In Vain and Carl Perkins' Turn Around plus a version of the Wanda Jackson rockabilly song I Gotta Know. Highlight of the album however is the incredible honky tonk ballad God May Forgive You (But I Won't written by the brilliant Harlan Howard. This was previously reissued on CD on Rounder with six bonus tracks which are, sadly, not included but, if you missed that release, this is one you've got to hear! (FS)

 
JIM FORD Bear Family BCD 17257 Demolition Expert - Rare Acoustic Demos ● CD $21.98
30 tracks, 78 mins, recommended
Cult Country/roots rocker Jim Ford has been well served by Bear Family; they have tirelessly compiled his material into loving compilations that have illustrated his artistry, preserved his status as an unsung genius, and demonstrated his influence on Britain's Pub Rock community. This latest set contains acoustic demos recorded at home; without knowing the context or time frame of these recordings, they can only be taken at face value as a glimpse into Ford's songwriting psyche and creative motivations. There's an off-the-cuff homey quality to this assortment of Country covers and originals that is very inviting; it's too bad there's no proper documentation of these recordings, as it would be worthwhile to know exactly when they were recorded (the early 70's is the assumed timeframe) and the identities of the other vocalists. No matter, for Ford die-hards, this CD is indispensible, while listeners new to the Jim Ford experience should start with Bear Family's "The Sounds of Our Time" (Bear Family 16777) CD before coming here. (GMC)

 
BILLY GRAY Cactus BGCD 1 Hillbilly Stars Of Decca Records - Billy Gray ● CD $15.98
26 tracks, highly recommended
This one's been out a while but hasn't been listed before. Gray was a fine singer, songwriter and guitarist from Texas. He recorded a handful of sides in 1947 but it wasn't until he signed with Decca in 1954 that he recorded regularly. In the early-mid 50s Billy was leader of Hank Thompson's band and helped write some of Hank's songs. The material here was recorded between 1954 and 1960 - mostly from Decca but also including a couple of sides recorded for Longhorn. Billy was a fine singer and the material ranges from honky tonk weepers to up-tempo western swing flavored numbers including his hot Tennessee Toddy which is a favorite of rockabilly collectors. Nine of the cuts here are jazzy instrumentals and I assume the fine electric guitar work is by Billy himself. Fine sounds but no notes. (FS)

 
THE ILLUSIONS Axtel 1001 Now You See Them, Now You Don't ● CD $17.98
26 tracks of white doo-wop featuring the fine Philadelphia group The Illusions and various offshoots in the 50s and 60s. The group had a local hit with their soulful midtempo Hey Boy and this collections features ballads and mid tempo numbers along with a few more soul oriented efforts. The group recorded for several small labels and this set also includes six previously unissued songs and two acapella demos plus tracks featuring the group's principle lead singer Freddy Faulkner.

 
DOUG QUATTLEBAUM Testament TCD 6003 If You've Ever Been Mistreated ● CD $14.98 $8.98
19 tracks, highly recommended
Previously unissued recordings from 1961 by excellent country blues singer and guitarist from Philadelphia who was discovered by Pete Welding on the street where he was warming up the crowd so he could pitch them a range of Mister Softee frozen deserts. Quattlebaum was a superb singer with a gospel inflected vocal style and an original guitarist and his material includes original songs and traditional blues, gospel and R&B songs. Includes Hard Luck Blues/ Baby, Please Don't Go/ Baby, What You Want Me To Do/ Lizzie Lou/ What'd I Say/ It's Nobody's Fault But Mine, etc. Booklet has notes by some guy named Frank Scott. (AK)

 
WAYNE RANEY Gusto 2228 Why Don't You Haul Off And LOve Me ● CD $8.98
Gusto recently issued a collection of gospel songs by this great country singer and harmonica player and now comes up with 20 of his secular sides from the 40s and early 50s including his #1 country hit Why Don't You Haul Off And Love Me as well as his hits Lost John Boogie and Jack And Jill Boogie along with other fine sides like Green Valley Waltz/ You Are My Brothers/ Cold, Cold Snow/ Country Express/ Gone With The Wind In The Morning/ Lilac Bouquet, etc.
WAYNE RANEY: Burning Your Love Letters/ Can Your Hossie Do The Dog/ Cold, Cold Snow/ Country Express/ Fox Chase/ Gone With The Wind This Morning/ Green Valley Waltz (Inst.)/ I Ain't Nothing But A Tom Cat's Kitten/ I Had My Fingers Crossed/ I Want A Home In Dixie/ If You Never Slip Around/ Jack And Jill Boogie/ Lilac Bouquet/ Lost John Boogie/ Real Hot Boogie/ The Roosters Are Crowing/ Walking With The Blues Tonight/ Why Don't You Haul Off And Love Me/ You Are My Brother/ You Better Treat Your Man Right

 
JACK RIVERS B.A.C.M. 361 Vol. 2 - Navy Hot Rod ● CD $14.98
The second volume of this fine West Coast singer and guitarist is devoted to his commercial recordings made for a variety of labels between 1946 and 1951. The previous issue (BAC 150) featured songs from radio transcriptions plus a radio show. Jack is featured in a variety of settings including sides with the fine Western group Andy Parker & The Plainsmen, jazz pianist Billy Taylor, fiddler Neil LeVang and others. The earlier sides are pretty straight ahead Western performances but the later add a more jazzy Western Swing approach and a number give Jack a chance to show off his impressive electric guitar chops.
JACK RIVERS: A Year Of City Living/ At Least A Million Tears/ Blue Blue Eyes/ Detour/ Galloping Guitar/ Get On The Happy Side Of Living/ I Found Somebody New/ If You Could Only Be Mine/ Jelly Bean Rag/ Lorelei/ Moon Over Montana/ My Baby Don't Love/ My Dreams Are Getting Better All The Time/ Navy Hot Rod/ One Woman Man/ Osbourne Boogie/ Playing Games With Me/ Rosetta/ Sargent's Stomp/ Shane Shame On Jolie Blon/ Slowly I'm Walking The Dog/ Summer Or Winter/ Sweet Sue/ The Wild Guitar/ Were You There/ What It Means To Be Blue/ You Can't Break The Chains Of Love

 
VARIOUS ARTISTS Ace CDCHD 1322 Further Mellow Cats 'n' Kittens, 1946-1951 ● CD $18.98
The fifth volume of rare and unissued West Coast blues and R&B recorded for the Modern group of labels in the 40s and early 50s is another stellar collection of 25 sides. Most of them are appearing on CD for the first time and nine tracks are previously unissued. Includes sides by Luke Jones & His Orch., Goree Carter (issued by Modern as Gory Carter), Three Bits Of Rhythm, Red Mack, Jimmy Witherspoon (the previously unissued risque Calypso flavored Hotel), Jim Wynn & His Orch., Ramp Davis, Effie Smith, The Herb Fisher Trio, Bebopper Lulu (an unidentified female vocalist given her name by the folks at Ace presumably from her skills as a scat singer) and others. Usual superb sound and informative liner notes.

VARIOUS ARTISTS AP Music 970 Jukebox Favorites - The Best Of Early R&B ● CD $18.98
4 CD, 80 tracks, highly recommended
No frills (no liner notes, tracks not in any particular order) collection of classic 50's blues and R&B tunes by everyone from Johnny Ace and Jackie Wilson to Ruth Brown and LaVern Baker. There's nothing here that can't be had elsewhere, but there is no denying the quality of the music and the sound is great. One of a series of four collections of "Jukebox Favorites" (the others cover Rock & Roll, Doo-Wop, and the Blues), this is a set for people who don't otherwise own the songs already and want them in a convenient package.

VARIOUS ARTISTS Document DOCD 5643 Rare Country Blues, Vol. 4 : 1929-1953 ● CD $15.98 $11.98
24 tracks, highly recommended
Most of the artists here sound a bit too urbane to be considered "country blues" but the best cuts here are superb examples of country blues. The best cuts open and close this CD. It begins with four cuts from 1929 by a St. Louis singer and guitarist with the delightful name of Papa Egg Shell (real name Lawrence Casey). He was a superb singer and a flowing lyrical guitarist. His two part I'm Going Up The Country is based on Jim Jackson's blues hit Kansas City Blues with original lyrics. The disc ends with two lovely tracks from 1953 by singer/ guitarist Robert Lee Westmoreland - an enigmatic performer with two fine sides recorded for the obscure Trepur label. Troy Ferguson appears to be a piano and guitar player - his piano blues College Blues is fine, the two guitar based blues are relatively undistinguished hokum numbers. Pere Dickson and Archie Lewis are pretty dull performers. This disc also features the only recordings under his own name by fine singer and guitarist Willie B. James who is best known for his frequent appearance as an accompanying musician on recordings Bumble Bee Slim, Lee Green, Curtis Jones, Monkey Joe, Red Nelson and others. There are 10 tracks by singer/ piano player Frank Tannehill recorded between 1937 and 1941 - most with guitar and drum accompaniment. Tannehill is a fairly pedestrian performer though his performances are not without interest and certainly worth a listen. All in all, a decent album which is elevated to highly recommended status by the performances of Papa Egg Shell and Robert Lee Westmoreland. (FS)

 
VARIOUS ARTISTS Famous Flames 01 The First Rock And Roll Record ● CD $26.98
3CD, 82 tracks, essential
Based on the 1992 book (now out of print and a collector's item if you can find it) "hat Was the First Rock 'N' Roll Record?" by Jim Dawson and Steve Propes, this collection, compiled by Mojo writer Dave Henderson, features 82 songs (including 37 of the original songs named in the book) that could reasonably be considered worthy of the honor. Proceeding in more or less chronological order from 1916's The Camp Meeting Jubilee (by some unknown singers) to Elvis' Heartbreak Hotel in 1956 (and touching upon artists like Benny Goodman and his Orchestra, Robert Johnson, Illinois Jacquet, the Delmore Brothers, and Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith, and more along the way), this CD is a compact history lesson of music in the first half of the 20th century; music that made a lot of us who we are today. Essentially, the CD illustrates how different styles of music-western swing, hillbilly country, rhythm and blues, spirituals, and early jazz and blues-fused together with attitude, party mentality, and primitive rhythms became the true genesis of what came to be known as rock 'n' roll. Sure, you could all this information in a book (or several), but to hear it evolve over 82 tracks is much more impressive and educational. Packaged in a triple digipac with a 32 page illustrated booklet with notes by Henderson and a card with a code that will allow you to download 13 more songs from Famous Flames' web site. (GMC)

VARIOUS ARTISTS Jookin' 18007 Jookin' 7 ● CD $16.98
27 tracks, highly recommended
Another great collection of obscure but exciting rocking blues and R&B which opens with a fiery instrumental The Boogie Woogie Twist featuring a band led by Texas bluesman Cal Valentine with tough sax and Cal adding some nice "Boogie Chillun" style riffs. The disc ends with another superb instrumental - this time from Chicago bluesman Al Perkins featuring hot guitar from Al. Most of the rest is vocals and includes contributions from Eddie Foster, Amanda Love (the gorgeous soul flavored You Keep Calling Me By Her Name), Billy Kent & The Andantes, Eddie Burns (rocking down home blues from Detroit bluesman), Harold Burrage, Oscar & Anita, Jesse Butler, Jon Thomas (another hot instrumental track Tizzy), Bobby & Sylvia (Sylvia Robinson of Mickey & Sylvia with another partner on the outrageous You Broke My Heart And I Broke Your Jaw), The Valiants, Jimmy Trotter and others.

VARIOUS ARTISTS JSP JSPCD 77148 Ukrainian & Lemko String Bands In America ● CD $28.98
Four CDs, 98 tracks, very highly recommended
Another fabulous collection of ethnic music courtesy of JSP and compiler Chris King. This one is devoted to music made in America by Ukrainians and Lemkos - the latter from a disputed region in the Northern Carpathian mountains. Until the mid 1920 most recorded Ukrainian music, though popular among immigrants to America, tended to be conventional and overly polished recordings of popular songs. In the mid 1920s mountain fiddler Paul Humeniuk started recording and after that there was a flood of recordings of traditional music performed in traditional style and this collections features recordings made between 1926 and 1933.. Much of is lively and rhythmic dance music, an integral part of weddings and other ceremonial occasions featuring instruments like fiddle, guitar, mandolin, cymbalom and other instruments. Several numbers feature full ensembles including brass instruments; not surprisingly these are quite reminiscent of traditional Klezmer music. About half the tracks are vocal including a remarkable six part skit featuring two of the most popular Ukrainian performers of the late 20s and early 30 Ewgen Zhukowsky and Nasza Roza - this skit Na Widwidyny Do Kraju translates a "A Trip Back Home" and expresses the feelings of homesickness that most immigrants felt. The selection is varied and exciting throughout and the sound quality is superb. The only disappointment is that, in keeping wit JSPs policy the notes are far too brief consisting of a brief commentary in the four page booklet that comes with each CD - a release this important deserves a hefty booklet with extensive notes. It does have full discographical details, where known. (FS)

 
VARIOUS ARTISTS Kent CDKEND 364 Masterpieces Of Modern Soul, Vol. 3 ● CD $18.98
23 tracks, 74 mins, highly recommended
Third volume in the rare 70's soul series mixes name artists (Candi Staton, Tommy Tate, Barbara Brown) with unknowns just like the previous two entries (Kent 222 and Kent 310). The only odd-ball is a Dave Hamilton production from 1984 (I Don't Play Games by Nightchill); otherwise this is the usual assortment of ballads and dance floor-fillers. Collectors will savor tracks from The Hesitations (Go Away), Gloria Lucas (You Won't Be True), Rose Batiste (The Feeling is Gone, co-written and co-produced by Swamp Dogg), Tommy Tate (the super rare If You Got to Love Somebody), and Darondo (Didn't I). The spotlight tracks are more subtle than usual, but that shouldn't diminish the listening experience; just chalk this up as another winner from Kent. (GMC)

VARIOUS ARTISTS Smith & Co. 2441 Great British Skiffle, Vol. 5 - Just About As Good As I ● CD $16.98
2 CDs, 59 tracks, 2 hours 14 min., highly recommended
Skiffle saw its heyday in England in the late 1950s, when it influenced reached across much of the popular music scene. This collection features folk, gospel, rockabilly, country, blues, and jazz (recorded between 1948-1960) all reimagined through the filter of skiffle, complete with kazoos, washboards, and other improvised instruments that helped to define the form. The King of Skiffle, Lonnie Donegan contributes an oddly upbeat version of the classic American song John Henry and Bob Cort takes on Woody Guthrie's This Land Is Your Land, with British locations and landmarks substituted for the American originals. Also of note is the oddly upbeat version of Mary Don't You Weep by the Lea Valley Skiffle Group, and the Human Orchestra-esque treatment of the chestnut I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate by the Original London Blue Blowers. But the best track here, He's Solid Gone, belongs to Nancy Whiskey and her Skifflers, who apparently didn't record much. Fans of the form and especially those of Vol. 4 have much to be happy about.
