The R&B Years, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
Packed with excellent performances, R & B Years, Vol. 2 is a solid collection of classic blues and jazz singers from the first half of the century. The songs here are great because they come from an adult standpoint; none of these have that naïve viewpoint that so many songs from this era have. The adult subject matter makes these songs quite entertaining, whether it be Louis Jordan's prohibition tale "Saturday Night Fish Fry," Bullmoose Jackson's hilariously shocking "I Want a Bow-Legged Woman," or Dinah Washington's kiss off anthem "Baby Get Lost."

The only real problem is the sound quality, which is good for most of the album but definitely has its rough spots. But with all of the good songs and performances, the sound is not that big of a worry. Fans of quality jazz and blues will probably find this very entertaining, and anyone looking to hear this sort of music for the first time could do a lot worse than starting here for a sample.
