Format: Audio CD
This is a nice collection of early blues recordings from New Orleans, which contains many good tracks and some outstanding ones.

I was pleased to find that pretty much all of the recordings here were ones I'd not heard before, and in fact, most of the artists were new to me too. There's a lot of variation on this CD, both in style and mood. Given that this is New Orleans, piano-based blues dominate the collection, both solo piano, and piano-led bands (with trumpets, clarinets and the like). There are also a fair number of guitar blues interspersed through the collection (about a third of the tracks). Among them are two phenomenal tracks by Rabbit Brown - 'James Alley Blues' and 'I'm not jealous' which have been stuck in my head for some weeks now. Other stand-out tracks for me are Sam Collins 'New Salty Dog', the Shreveport Home Wreckers 'Fence Breaking Blues' (largely for the kazoo solo!), Champion Jack Dupree's 'Cabbage Greens #1' and Kid Stormy Weather's 'Short Hair Blues'

With one exception, all the tracks here were recorded between 1926 and 1940. The exception, Hot Rod Happy's 'Worried Blues', recorded in 1949, sounds a little out of place here for that reason. Considering the recording dates, the sound quality is good - reasonably clean and clear even on the earliest recordings (none of that wall of hiss that you sometimes hear on very early recordings).

For me, this doesn't have quite enough stand-out tracks to get 5 stars, but its definitely a good CD and a worthwhile purchase for anyone who enjoys pre-war blues - I'm glad I bought it.

Since amazon aren't currently displaying the track list, I've included it here. Many of the tracks and artists on this CD can be heard on YouTube if you want to get more of an idea of what you'd be buying.
