One of Joe Williams' standout classics from the 50s – just the sort of record that put him on top of his game at the time! The album's one of Joe's classic outings with Count Basie – one recorded for Roulette with a slightly looser, slightly rawer feel than their work together on Verve. Joe's rendition of "Everyday I Have The Blues" is a near-definitive one – tight, syncopated, and grooving in a style that stretches back to its roots, but which also steps out with a fresh sort of groove that points the way towards changes in soulful vocal styles during the 60s. Other titles work equally well in the mode – bluesy, but never hokey, all freshened up by the Basie approach of the time – and titles include "Baby Won't You Please Come Home", "Going To Chicago", "Joe Sings The Blues", and "What Did You Win". (Heavy multi-color bar label with deep groove. Cover has a name in marker on both sides, and some clear tape on the corners.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Roulette, 1962. Very Good
Fantastic work from Dinah – who's hitting her stride here in a whole new style, a booze-drenched, sad-eyed mode that's a distinct change from the bossy blues of earlier years. The prime example of this is the excellent "Drinking Again" – one of her standards of the 60s – ... LP, Vinyl record album
