Although most of the better known artists have been reissued this is the first of two CDs featuring some of the label's lesser known performers. Most of the label's blues were urban performers or blue shouters and we have fine performances in this vein from Clarence Samuels, Duke Henderson, Earl Brown including an interesting urban take on Dust My Broom with different lyrics and tune but the same meanining and Charles Whitfield. Al Prince's two sides are somewhat more down home and his band accompanies the very down home sounding Little Willie Cotton.
Highlight for me are the eight utterly superb tracks from Little Son Willis - these have all been reissued before but it's nice to have them all together. The obscure Willis was a superb singer and piano player who was influenced by Dr. Clayton and his performances have lovely rolling piano.
On two tracks he is accompanied on guitar by the enigmatic and superb guitarist Ernest Lewis whose own outstanding recordings were issued under four different pseudonyms. Excellent sound and booklet has discographical details. It includes the fourth, and possibly best, of the singles by the superb singer and piano player Little Son Willis - a gorgeous rendition of Doctor Clayton's Angels In Harlem as Harlem Blues.
The fine and distinctive Texas pre war bluesman Joe Pullum has the fine two part My Woman accompanied by the great West Coast pianist Lloyd Glenn who is also featured here accompanying Jesse Thomas and Lowell Thomas as well as featured on two swinging instrumentals under his own anem.
Black gospel goes from the church to British Northern Soul dance clubs. Some years ago fans began including some mid and up-tempo black gospel into the wide ranging amorphous musical genre Northern Soul and this splendid collection features a selection of those recordings - mostly from the late 50s and early 60s along with a couple of earlier titles.
Whatever the concept, this is an excellent collection of mostly obscure sides with superb sound and brief notes.
Two CDs, 53 tracks, mins, essential At first look I thought that this two CD set of West Coast down home blues was a rehash of what had been out before on Boulevard and other labels but on further inspection I found that this set includes 15 previously unissued tracks from a February and they are fabulous!
These recordings were made for Dolphins of Hollywood and then bought by King Records who never issued them and here they are reissued for the first time and well worth getting this set for.
There are nine sides by Soldier Boy Houston who also had some sides issued by Atlantic. He was a fabulous performer who was born in Texas and settled in Los Angeles in the early 50s. He was a superb, low key vocalist who accompanied himself with a basic but very effective churning guitar style and sang songs that often had an autobiographical theme including a couple that reflect his possible experiences in the Korean war.
He sings about going to Hollywood to find his woman in two versions - one of them is incomplete and features him accompanied by two harmonicas! One of the harmonica players is thought to be Ira Taylor who performs a superb rendition of the old favorite My Little Machine and also accompanies the equally obscure Charles Lacey - a superb singer and dynamic guitar player who is featured on three outstanding songs. This amazing session is rounded out by two versions of New Orleans by James "Little" Houston who may be the older brother of Soldier Boy and is the least interesting of the artists but still worthwhile.
The rest of the tracks have all been out before but some of them were on the long out of print ABM release which had apalling sound and are featured here in far superior quality including both parts of Smokey Hogg's Penitentiary Blues - probably his best performance - traditional Texas blues with fine guitar by Smokey who is not always noted for his guitar skills.
Considering the sophistication of West Coast music some of the country blues recorded here in the 40s and early 50s are among the most archaic released in this era. Excellent sound and informative notes make this a must have collection.
Two CDs, 44 tracks, very highly recommended Another superb and unique collection of ethnic music from JSP - this time devoted to music recordings made in the USA between and by Italian immigrants. The first disc is devoted to the traditional folk stylings of Italy while the second disc showcases urban artists whose songs evokes the cities and era in which they lived.
The material is incredibly varied including vocals and instrumentals. The instrumentals feature guitar, mandolin, brass bands, accordion, zampogna Italian bagpipes , friscalettu penny whistle and more including a remarkable tenor banjo instrumental by Frank Fazio on a tune that gives this collection its name. Instruments are featured solo and in various combinations. The songs range from an unaccompanied ballad to simple songs with guitar accompaniment to songs with orchestral accompaniment and some semi-operatic pieces.
A wide variety of dance forms are featured including polkas, mzaurkas, tarantellas and more. Sound quality is superb and there are informative notes by Todd Cambio who collected most of the recordings here. Two CDs, 29 tracks, highly recommended In spite of some incorrect information in the booklet and a somewhat misleading title, this is an excellent collection of Chicago blues and gospel from a live show in Chicago in N o vember It includes three songs from Willie and one each from Horton, Jackson and James and four instrumentals - two featuring Horton and two featuring Leake.
The vocals and instrumentals are all excellent. The All Stars do not back the other gospel artists as indicated on the booklet. The set is rounded out by eight sides by the magnificent Stars of Faith from Philadelphia featuring leads from Frances Steadman, Esther Ford and others. Taken from a radio broadcast, the sound is generally excellent. All good stuff. Sexy Trippy All Moods.
