The Earthshaker

The Earthshaker Lowest new price: $8.91
Lowest used price: $5.99
Brand: TAYLOR,KOKO

No Description Available.
Genre: Blues Music
Media Format: Compact Disk
Rating:
Release Date: 20-MAR-1989

Koko Taylor's second Alligator album from 1978 features eight blues standards and one self-composed number. As the title implies, the tempo is up. Subtle nuances give way to raw power. There's a remake of Taylor's only major R&B hit, "Wang Dang Doodle," amid like-minded floorshakers ("Let the Good Times Roll," "Spoonful," "Hey Bartender," and "You Can Have My Husband,") The band is very much in tune with the stated goals, and the solos are short and to-the-point. It has to be said that this music works better in concert than on record, but Taylor's protean energy goes a long way toward compensating for the inherent sterility of records. --Colin Escott

Songs of the Old Regular Baptists: Lined-Out Hymnody From Eastern Kentucky, Vol. 2

Songs of the Old Regular Baptists: Lined-Out Hymnody From Eastern Kentucky, Vol. 2 Lowest new price: $2.98
Lowest used price: $8.67
Brand: Smithsonian Folkways Recordings
Model: SFW50001

The oldest English-language religious music in oral tradition in North America, the lined-out, congregational hymnody of the Old Regular Baptists is heard in the heart of the coal-mining country of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. In this rare, beautiful, and heartfelt music lie the roots of the high, lonesome mountain sound of elaborate melodic turns and graces. Produced in collaboration with the Indian Bottom Association of Old Regular Baptists, this is the second of two Smithsonian Folkways albums devoted to their music; the first was SFW CD 40106.

Billie Holiday's Greatest Hits (Decca)

Billie Holiday's Greatest Hits (Decca) Lowest new price: $5.38
Lowest used price: $1.42
Model: 1973194

There's no such thing as a genuine Billie Holiday greatest-hits collection--her career was split among too many labels for that--but this single-disc distillation of the Complete Decca Recordings 2 CD set (recorded between 1944 and 1950) is pretty solid. Holiday's in fine vocal form (though her accompaniment is undistinguished easy-listening stuff; the choir on "God Bless the Child" is a bit frustrating), and the songs are arranged to work as an album rather than chronologically. She transcends the ideas of torch songs, of blues, of ballad singing--her version of "Lover Man" exemplifies erotic despair, tormented and aroused at once--and even the lesser-known tracks here are pleasant surprises, like a Leonard Bernstein song. --Douglas Wolk

Sings the Blues

Sings the Blues Lowest new price: $6.59
Lowest used price: $3.20
Brand: Howlin' Wolf

The U.K.'s Ace label pulls together 20 tracks on this all-killer-no-filler comp. There is a nice range of material from Howlin' Wolf's Memphis era. Tracks on Sings the Blues include "Ridin' in the Moonlight," "Do Me Around," "I'm the Wolf," and "Backslide Boogie," to name a few. This was an innovative and rough-and-tumble era for Wolf and his band, and the music here makes it come to life; it is proof-positive of Wolf's enduring stature as a blues icon. ~ Thom Jurek, All Music Guide
