The Essential Otis Rush: The Classic Cobra Recordings 1956–1958
This one could as well be listed @ The Master Geetarist thread. Heck, I forgot to list there the Otis "Cobra Sides '56-'58" album I listened to this morning.
^^ Okay, just took care of that overs(l)ight.
It could also be listed in a "Dumbest moves by a record label" thread. Crazy that Capitol left it in the can.
Capitol didn't need anything after bagging The Four-Headed Monster Of Liverpool, did it? They'd also lost Sinatra (to his own label, Reprise), and that didn't matter either. Nope, The Fab Four salesnot only dominated the 45s and LPs markets, but expanded to television, clothing, dolls, lucnboxes, lamps, and you-name-it. And Capitol Records grabbed it all until "that Apple" matured, then grabbed it back after "that Apple" rotted & died. Or something like that.
* Quite a lotta Blues on this LP. It is interesting that (Jeff) Beck would, oonly a few years later, make such a marked turn towards (fusion-y) jazz & instrumentalism.
