Overview

This compilation disc contains an astonishing array of blues and boogie-woogie piano artists that will be of interest to anyone who has an ear for this genre of music. Some of the selections are outtakes, while others are never-before-released recordings. The latter are from vinyl records that were made in the '40s. Among the artists featured are Lee Green, Judson Brown with Charlie "Bozo" Nicherson, Leroy Carr with Scrapper Blackwell, Charles "Cow Cow" Davenport, Georgia Tom with Tampa Red, Memphis Slim, Little Brother Montgomery, Roosevelt Sykes with Walter Davis, Thomas A. Dorsy, Ivy Smith, Ezra Howelett Shelton, Cripple Clarence Lofton, Jimmy and Mama Yancey, and Alonzo Yancey. The quality of the recordings is variable, but listening to them is still worthwhile for their historical and musical value. The repertoire ranges from the well-known "The Girl I'm Looking For," "Beer Drinking Woman," and "Church House Blues" to the more obscure "Mama and Jimmy Blues," "Deep End Boogie," and "Poor Old Bachelor Blues." Dialogue by various artists is interspersed throughout this fascinating historical document.
