Overview

The Very Best of Earl Bostic is a 25-track overview of his jump blues and R&B instrumentals recorded for King in the late '40s and '50s. Bostic's biggest R&B hits, including "Temptation" "Flamingo," and "Sleep," are coupled with favorites like "Earl Blows a Fuse," "Rockin' and Reelin'," and one of the few vocal tracks Bostic cut, "Who Snuck the Wine in the Gravy." This Collectables reissue is a decent set for casual Bostic fans, but those who want to go deeper into his catalog should check into the chronological Blues & Rhythm Series on Classics. As a side note, John Coltrane was part of Bostic's band in the early '50s, and makes an appearance on the cuts "Moonglow," "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," and "For You."
