The New Orleans Sessions 1950 & 1953
DUSTY GROOVE AMERICA/US
...all beautifully brought together here in a lavishly overstuffed package!
...The 2CD set is almost
worth it for the booklet alone - a 70 page treasure trove of notes, photos, and other details on the music.
But there's also plenty of great music too...
BLUES AND RHYTHM/UK
This double CD is presented in a fold out
card box, with a ‘worn’ sleeve meant to give the appearance of those old 78 box
sets that were around in the early 50s (not that I ever owned any!). The pull-out
booklet slips inside the jacket between the CDs in a thoughtful manner
ROOTS AND RHYTHM/US
a fine set, one of the best releases of the year so far...
This double CD album, just released in this year, has very funny artwork here - take a look, it looks like a heavily worn-out 78rpm album binder!
When I saw this artwork for the first time, I thought this copy is one of substandard products . . .
LOUISIANNA MUSIC FACTORY/US
a time capsule which is spilling all of its contents for the first time over half a century later....
Bonus-Punkte für ein Top-Projekt verdient das 72-Seitige atmosphärische Booklet!
Vier der ganz seltenen Aufnahmen von Gospeleinspielungen der Silvertone Singers krönen übrigens diese Sammlung, die sich nicht nur mit der Covergestaltung und dem liebevollen Booklet um Authentizität bemüht:
As I love label-compilations as a collector on my own, this production seems to be the real thing!
RnB is the stuff I am always looking for (on shellack), so I had here the oportunity, to use a lot of my
own stuff for this 2 CD-compilation. - Again it has the destroyed look of an old album, filled with a "real book", that
might look, as survived the last flood of New Orleans (sorry) and the CDs are also "used" 78 records. - A fun for the
future customer and the graphical director as well! - On the other hand, I have the two CD.boxes from Mercury itself in my
stock (RnB and Boogie and BoP), anyway, I had to compete with these (stunning) packages, no other chance!
