Chicago Blues, Modern Electric Blues | JSP Records #JSPCD 254

Smith was so far outside the domestic blues loop that this Chicago-cut set only found release on a British logo, JSP. It was our loss – Smith is typically brusque and ominous, threatening to "Play the Blues on the Moon" and "Addressing the Nation with the Blues" as only he can. Nothing derivative about his lyrical muse – he's intense to the point of allowing his words not to rhyme to make his points, while his lead guitar work is inevitably to the point. Strictly judging from the lyrical sentiment of his recordings, it might be wise not to make Chicago guitarist Byther Smith angry. Smitty's uncompromising songs are filled with threats of violence and ominous menace (the way blues used to be before the age of political correctness), sometimes to the point where his words don't even rhyme.

Genre: Blues | Label: Verve/PolyGram | # 314 527 371-2 | Time: 01:16:21

Taken from the high-energy harpist's first three albums for Verve following his split from Muddy Waters (including the entirety of his fine eponymous 1967 debut), this 20-track anthology is a fine spot to begin any serious Cotton collection. In those days, Cotton was into soul as well as blues – witness his raucous versions of "Knock on Wood" and "Turn on Your Lovelight," backed by a large horn complement. Compiler Dick Shurman has chose judiciously from his uneven pair of Verve follow-ups, making for a very consistent compilation.

WEB FLAC (tracks) - 374 MB | Tracks: 14 | 59:19 min
Style: Blues, Rock | Label: Cop Records

"On a Roll" builds on the success of "Playing Rough" (2016) and "Live at Blues on the Chippewa (2017) to bring the unique songwriting style of singer/guitarist Mark Cameron into a new era. The soulful sax of Sheri Cameron and "down-and-dirty" harp playing of Rick Miller combine to make "On a Roll" a party from the word go. With moods that range from hard-driving electric blues to vintage Delta acoustic with a heavy dose of Swing and Shuffle blues in between, and lyrics that are fun, funny and often poignant. The binding thread in "On a Roll" is the infectious rhythm playing of drummer Dan Schroeder and bassist Scott Lundberg. You will find your toes tappin, and your butt shakin, all the way through "On a Roll".

Classic Female Blues, Jazz Blues, Swing | Label: Classics | # 5131

This is the third and final volume in the complete recordings of Lil Green in chronological order as reissued by the Classics Blues & Rhythm Series. By 1947 Lil Green was beginning to sound more than a little like Ida Cox, even when handling songs from Tin Pan Alley rather than straight up out of the tried and true traditional blues repertoire. Comparisons could also be drawn between Lil Green and Nellie Lutcher or Julia Lee. While her "crossover" performances are worthwhile, there's nothing quite like hearing this woman savor the flavor of Bessie Smith hits like "Aggravatin' Papa," "Outside of That," and "You've Been a Good Old Wagon (But You Done Broke Down)." Green's own "Lonely Woman" has a powerful undercurrent running through it – there is even a remote possibility that Ornette Coleman was inspired by this record when conceiving his own composition of the same title in 1959. Even if the link is purely coincidental, these melodies have something wonderful in common. Green's final recordings for the Victor label are strengthened by the presence of tenor saxophonists Budd Johnson, Lem Johnson, and David Young.

“Dov Hammer’s singing is heartfelt and moving. Impossible not be drawn to his voice. His harmonica playing fits the music like a glove. This is not a player who relies on repeating previously recorded licks by other harp masters. He works on his craft, on his tone, and on his unique phrasings. He has his own signature sound.”

Austin, Texas-based guitarist, singer, interpreter and songwriter Guy Forsyth is like a lot of Austin musicians. He leads his own band, as well as a group called the Asylum Street Spankers; when he's not performing with either of these groups locally, you can find Forsyth sitting in with someone else just for kicks. Forsyth is a rare combination: he's a talented guitarist, singer and songwriter, but also a diligent, conscientious student of blues, blues-rock and other indigenous folk musics.

Delta Blues, Detroit Blues, Country Blues | Label: JSP Records | # JSPCD7703 | Time: 05:01:54

This four-disc box from London's JSP Records collects an astounding 100 songs recorded by John Lee Hooker in Detroit from the years 1948 to 1952, including his first two sides ever, the signature tunes "Boogie Chillen" and "Sally Mae." Most of the tracks here are done solo, with Hooker's ever-present foot-stomping, although a few feature other musicians on loose-limbed blues boogies. Since Hooker never significantly altered his style during his long career, these first recordings set the stage for all that came after, and he arguably never sounded fresher or better. Four discs worth of this throwback Mississippi bluesman will be severe overkill for casual listeners, but diehard Hooker fans will find this box set absolutely essential.
