    Was it you that posted this one before, or somebody else?
    Either way, a Hollywood Fats sighting has happened, and needs to be pointed out.

    Speaking of which, I planned on spinning his band's(sans Fats) Soul Sanctuary album today.

    Yesterday had some Studebaker John on the stereo; Tremolux and Born To Win.

    I just picked up this CD at a local thrift. ($1)
    I am spinning it now, I'm at the second to last song.

    Sadly they didn't do much, if anything to remaster the songs.
    Some have way to much noise.
    Some sound like they just recorded off an old LP.
    Modern software can easily fix this.
    Even back in 1993 when this was released.
    Then again maybe it is the best they could do, some of these songs were recorded in the 20's and 30's.
    The ones recorded in the 60's sound mighty fine.
    I need to read the insert. Perhaps I will get some insight.

    If you're talking about the stuff like Charley Patton on that disc, not much is going to improve the sound of his recordings. Besides being really old recordings, Paramount was notorious for cheaping out.

    Excellent collection of early Gatemouth Brown songs on 2 CDs.
    Many of these are covered in later recordings but this collection is more "raw".

    Lots of super music getting posted on here.
    I came across this one at PJ's, in Ann Arbor.
    Like it.

    I hope you can read the back jacket notes.
    In case you can't, it's about Chuck and Bo getting together
    and turning out these spontaneous Blues.

    DSCN0969.JPG

    The Bo Diddley track, When the Saints Go Marching In "Bo Diddley", is pretty cool.
    The whole album is fine.
    Chess label.
    How could I resist?
    They each play a solo track.
    And they play together twice for extended improvised sessions, like 10:30 and 14:00 minutes, all unrehearsed.
