Format:Audio CD
Chronological Classics CDs were a concept of Gilles Pétard of France who set out in 1989 to ambitiously re-release as many of the 78-rpm Jazz/Big Band (Swing) selections as he could, each with detailed and informative inserts. The first volume was Ella Fitzgerald 1935-1937 and, after producing close to 1,000 CDs, the series ceased operations in 2004 after filing for bankruptcy. By that time Pétard was starting on some of the earliest 33 1/3 LPs. Many of the artists were featured over more than one CD and one such is guitarist, vocalist and songwriter "Stick" McGhee, born Granville Henry McGhee in Knoxville, Tennessee on March 23, 1917, and the younger brother of Blues legend Walter "Brownie" McGhee. In fact, he got his nickname "Stick" when he was regularly seen pushing Brownie in a wagon using a stick (Brownie, who suffered from polio, was inducted into the Blues Hall Of Fame in 1997).

Stick's early years included a stint in the Army from 1942 to 1946, following which he made New York City his home and began re-working a bawdy tune he had written while in the Army, re-naming it Drinkin' Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee (spodi was a popular fruit-based alcoholic drink). He and Brownie recorded it and had it released in 1947 on Harlem 1018 b/w Blues Mixture billed as "Stick" McGhee & His Buddies (Brownie on guitar and Dan Burley on piano), and although picked up and released on Decca 48104 (b/w Baby, Baby Blues), it went nowhere.
