The life stories of blues musicians are often as bittersweet as the music they played. L.C. "Good Rockin" Robinson is a good example. Born in southeast Texas in 1918, L.C. and his brother A.C. travelled and played the blues around Texas in the 1930's, but never made it big. L.C. served in World War II and then came west to join his brother, who had settled in the San Francisco Bay area. L.C. worked in a laundry and played and sang the blues when he could get a gig. He played fiddle and steel guitar, which he held in his lap. L.C. was discovered by Arhoolie Records in the early '70's, a few years before his death and he cut this album. The album is a little uneven. Four of the last 6 songs are gospel numbers in which he duets with his brother, A.C. There's nothing wrong with mixing the two, but the quality of the blues cuts is clearly superior --- especially the first 6 cuts on which L.C. is jointed by "Pinetop" Perkins" on piano and Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica.
Some of these songs are brilliant, like "Ups and Downs", which is also featured on the Arhoolie Anniversary Album. If only he had been discovered at the right time, L.C. Robinson might be remembered as one of the all time greats of blues.

Weired ! Only one review and three poor little stars for one of the all-time favorite records of many blues fans !!!
L.C. was a down home Texas bluesman who moved to the Oakland area where he spent his life. He recorded a few songs in the fifties, and then two and a half records in the seventies (for Bluesway, Arhoolie and World Pacific - Oakland blues).
This one is the best - and the only one available on cd : the first 7 songs with the Muddy Waters band are very good, but the next 7 with the crazy piano playing from Dave Alexander (Omar Shariff) are out of sight : low down blues or boogie, with gut wrenching singing and raw slide/pedal steel guitar or violin solos : you dive deep down into one of the most strong blues feeling that's been heard. Just take a listen to "Things so bad in California", "She got it from the start", "Country boy" or "New train time" ; you'll be convinced !
