Some of the more relatively obscure titles here include Todd Rhodes' "Pot Likker," T.J. Fowler's "T.J. Boogie," and Sugar Chile Robinson's "Numbers Boogie." More well-known performers including John Lee Hooker yes, the original "Boogie Chillun'" is here, Dinah Washington "Baby Get Lost", Bull Moose Jackson "Why Don't You Haul Off and Love Me", Roy Brown "Rockin' at Midnight" and T-Bone Walker "T-Bone Shuffle" are here, among over a dozen others. Colin Escott's detailed liner notes -- a set for each cut -- are in his usual form, authoritative and engaging, and the photographs in this handsome digipack are just beautiful.
