When blues historian Samuel Charters released his three-volume collection of Chicago blues in 1966, it had an impact on the rock and roll world similar to that of Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music , exposing a new, predominantly white generation to the sounds of the urban blues Mecca. Each artist came in and recorded 4-6 songs specifically for the project; many of these tunes have become staples in blues and rock repertoires. Includes Messin' with the Kid Junior Wells Chicago Blues Band; I Can't Quit You Baby Otis Rush Blues Band; Dust My Broom Homesick James & the Dusters; Hey, Hey Johnny Shines Blues Band; The Blues Keep Falling Jimmy Cotton Blues Quartet; Sometimes I Wonder Otis Spann's South Side Piano, and more.

Lowest used price: $2.01
Brand: Unknown

This amazingly low-priced double album from the #1 label in Louisana music offers a 23-track overview of music from that fertile region, from zydeco and blues to jazz and country! Includes Lula Lula Don't You Go to Bingo Boozoo Chavis; Les Flammes D'enfer Beausoleil; Tipitina Professor Longhair; Three Keys James Booker; Wildwood Flower D. L. Menard; Hold to God's Unchanging Hand Irma Thomas; Chere Toute-Toute Jimmy C. Newman; Think It Over One More Time Buckwheat Zydeco, and more.

From its humble beginnings in 1970 as a free concert for a few hundred locals, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has grown into one of the world's largest music gatherings, each spring drawing hundreds of thousands from all over the world. Jazzfest, as it's known locally, has both stimulated and reflected out-of-state interest in Louisiana music. It was once a rarity for Cajun, zydeco and second-line R&B acts to ever leave the state; now dozens of them make the circuit of baby-boomer, roots-music dance clubs. Most of that exponential growth has occurred in the last 10 years, and Rounder Records, which made a major commitment to Louisiana music in the mid-'80s, has reaped the benefit of the scene's growing popularity. Here the Boston indie label celebrates its own prescience with a two-CD anthology. Despite the title, most of the tracks were recorded within the last 10 years, but they cover a lot of ground--from the old-fashioned brothel piano of Tuts Washington to the funky brass arrangements of the Rebirth Brass Band, from the ancient Cajun song styles of David Doucet to the hip-hop-influenced zydeco of L'il Brian and the Zydeco Travelers. The first CD or "City Disc" focuses on 14 New Orleans artists, ranging from such late piano masters as Champion Jack Dupree and James Booker to such smooth soul crooners as Dalton Reed and Chuck Carbo. The second CD or "Country Disc" presents 18 Cajun and zydeco acts from French Louisiana, including such well known names as D.L. Menard and Buckwheat Zydeco as well as such emerging talents as Geno Delafose and Bruce Daigrepont. Holding the set together is the slippery sense of syncopation most Louisianans seem to be born with. Whether that pelvic pulse is dictated by fiddle or tuba, button accordion or upright piano, the infectious rhythms could only have come from that particular stretch of the Gulf Coast.--Geoffrey Himes

Preachin' The Blues: The Songs of Mississippi Fred McDowell

The best tribute to Fred McDowell is the many recordings he left behind. Arhoolie's The Best of Mississippi Fred McDowell and Capitol's I Do Not Play No Rock 'n' Roll are fantastic, but it's still fun to hear these interpretations of the 30-years-dead daddy of contemporary Mississippi hill country blues done by contemporary artists. Charlie Musselwhite zeroes in on McDowell's magic by swapping his trademark harp for guitar to play a spare, spirit-possessed "61 Highway." Paul Geremia nails the blaze of McDowell's slide for "Get Right Church," and Anders Osborne cops Fred's mumbling singing style in "Kokomo Blues." Although Colleen Sexton's vocal for "Keep Your Lamp Trimmed and Burning" is overwrought, her band runs a nice arrangement similar to what Junior Kimbrough, one of McDowell's inheritors, might have done. Tab Benoit delivers an uncanny imitation of McDowell's guitar and vocal approach on "Train I Ride," and Austinite Sue Foley's dirty solo guitar-and-vocal treatment of "Frisco Line" may be the best thing she's ever recorded. The most interesting rendition is David Maxwell's solo piano instrumental take on "I Heard Somebody Call," which starts by abandoning everything but the naked fear and loneliness in the face of God's last judgment that McDowell gave his original. Although the rest of this disc is less inspiring, overall, it's a solid testimonial to the durability of McDowell's legacy. --Ted Drozdowski
