Editorial Reviews

Three formerly rare Mose Allison albums originally cut for Columbia and Epic (Transfiguration of Hiram Brown, I Love The Life I Live and V-8 Ford Blues) are reissued in full on this attractive three-CD set plus six previously unreleased numbers. During this period (which dates between his associations with the Prestige and Atlantic labels), Mose Allison was making the transition from being a pianist-vocalist to a vocalist-pianist. He sings on roughly half the selections including "Baby, Please Don't Go," "'Deed I Do," "Fool's Paradise" and "I Love The Life I Live." The instrumentals (which also feature Addison Farmer, Henry Grimes, Bill Crow or Aaron Bell on bass and Jerry Segal, Paul Motian, Gus Johnson or Osie Johnson on drums) are highlighted by the interesting eight-song "Hiram Brown Suite." Mose Allison fans will want to go out of their way to get this set.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Great to have these recordings in one set, however the V-8 LP repeats several cuts that are on the first two LPs. This is made up for by the inclusion of some bonus tracks, but if this set is ever reissued it can be pared to two discs, excluding the repeats. Each disc is in the 40-45 minute range, so it will fit on two.
