Philadelphia Boogie

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
Collectables' Philadelphia Boogie has nothing to do with the city; rather, the title comes from one of the songs contained within. The tracks on the collection are by artists from all over the U.S. and were released during the '40s and '50s by labels like Roy Milton's Milltone and Ivin Ballen's Gotham subsidiary, 20th Century.

The tracks that stand out are Lee Brown's rollicking "Bobbie Town Boogie," James Carter's narcoleptic piano blues "Let Me Be Your Coalman," Duke Groner's easy take on the Dinah Washington classic "New Blowtop Blues," Jesse Price's "Just Before Sunrise" which features some greasy tenor work by Buddy Floyd, and Great Gates' ramshackle "Come Back Home" on which the guitar player can barely be contained before breaking out with a wonderfully slurred solo. Philadelphia Boogie is hardly the place to start building a jump blues or pre-rock & roll boogie collection; it is a nice but nonessential addition to an already well-appointed collection, however.
