✨✧ Bob Gaddy/Larry Dale/Brownie McGheeKings Of New York Blues 1952 to 1960 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A really well-done dip into the New York City blues scene of the 50s – one that presents a wealth of work we might not have heard otherwise, pulled from labels that include Old Town, Harlem, Jax, Wing, Dog, and Groove! There's a nice mix of material here that really shows the way the city was able to act as a crossroads for styles that were not necessarily homegrown, but could certainly find a home in its diverse community – as some cuts have more of a rural bent, others have some of the more electrified touches that were coming into urban blues, and a few have some of the jump/jazz styles of the R&B generation. Titles include "No Help Wanted", "I Believe You Got A Sidekick", "Bicycle Boogie", "Operator", "Slow Down Baby", "Paper Lady", and "Rip & Run" by Bob Gaddy; "You Better Heed My Warning", "Please Tell Me", "Feelin All Right", "No Tellin What I'll Do", and "What Your Love Means To Me" by Larry Dale; "A Letter To Lightnin Hopkins", "Worrying Over You", "Bluebird Bluebird", and "My Confession" by Brownie McGhee – and more by Cousin Leroy, Alonzo Scales, and Paul Williams too.

Sonny Terry & Brownie McGheeWorking Man Blues ... CD
Sunset Blvd, 1961/1974/1980. New Copy 2CD ... $25.99 26.99
A trio of different slices of work from this legendary blues duo – all material that goes way past some of the obvious reissues on the market! The first quarter of the set features the rare album You Hear Me Talkin – originally cut for the Choice Records label in 1961 – done with a very stripped-down vibe, and work from both artists on vocals – with Sonny on harmonica and Brownie McGhee on guitar! That spirit continues on the second quarter of material – 11 more tracks recorded in 1980 at a festival in Cologne, Germany – with an expanded lineup that includes some drums in the mix, but only to boost up more of the energy between Sonny and Brownie! The last half of the CD is some of the rarest, and maybe some of the best work on the set – two different festival performances from 1974 – one at Cornell, the other in Germany – recorded a month apart, and capturing the duo in very lively formation between some very enthusiastic audiences! This second half features 19 tracks in all – and really shows the charm of the pair at their best. CD
