Born in Dublin, Mississippi in 1943, Jimmy Burns derived his earliest inspiration from the records of Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and others. After Jimmy moved to Chicago in the mid-'50s he discovered a scene that was perfect for the meld of traditional blues, churchy emotionalism, and forward-looking pop/R&B sophistication that by then comprised his musical aesthetic. When he finally signed with Delmark in the mid-'90s, he was primed and ready to take his place as a leading blues recording artist. Live at B.L.U.E.S. captures perfectly the indelible combination of joyful spirits, warm-hearted intimacy, and sharp-witted intelligence that characterizes Jimmy Burns, as both a musician and a man. With special guest vocalist Jesse Fortune.

The younger brother of bluesman Eddie Burns, singer/guitarist Jimmy Burns followed in the family tradition, becoming a staple of Chicago's West Side club circuit after a long absence from the spotlight. Born February 27, 1943 in Dublin, Mississippi, he cut a handful of singles early in his career, but upon marrying and starting a family, he largely applied the brakes to his musical aspirations to focus on domestic life. Burns performed only rarely in the decades to follow; however, with his children all grown in the early 1990s…

asmine's first John Lee Hooker release 'Blues In Transition 1955-1959' concentrated on the recordings he made for his core audience and the emerging college folk scene which helped to propel him to international fame. This second excursion into the iconic bluesman's prolific career focuses on his material from late 1948 to 1954. By early 1949 'Boogie Chillen' was #1 on Billboard's R&B chart and was reputed to have sold over a million copies. It is these numerous boogie recordings that are collected on disc one of this unique package. Most of these discs are solo but several do feature other musicians and special note should be made of the contributions made to several tracks by these other musicians.

Not that this artist isn't pretty cool; far from it. Credited either as Bob Hardaway or Robert Hardaway, he spent much of the 20th century at the top of the studio musician scene in Los Angeles, playing a bewildering array of woodwind instruments — even bass clarinet, English horn, and alto flute — on a tall stack of records that stylistically give the impression of having been snatched at random out of a burning used record store, the Partridge Family, Dinah Washington, Bonnie Raitt, and his efforts with the Eddie Shu/Bob Hardaway Jazz Practitioners among them.

This 45-song, two-disc collection is subtitled "two decades of killer fretwork", and never was a set so aptly described. Chess Records was the home to seemingly every hot guitar player in the Chicago area, and many of them make their appearance here. Besides the usual label guitar hotshots (Muddy Waters, Jimmy Rogers, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy, Lowell Fulson, Earl Hooker, Otis Rush, Robert Nighthawk, Little Milton), space is given to sideman work from legends like Hubert Sumlin and Robert Jr. Lockwood and great one-offs by lesser-known artists like Jody Williams, Danny Overbea, Eddie Burns, Joe Hill Louis, Morris Pejoe, Lafayette Thomas and others. It seems as if everyone recorded for Chess at one time or another, also explaining the inclusion of tracks by John Lee Hooker, Albert King, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Lonnie Brooks, Hound Dog Taylor and Elmore James. If electric blues guitar's your thing, then look no further than this fine two-disc compilation.

1973 was a pivotal year for the Northern Soul movement. Its high-temple - Wigan Casino - had opened its doors to the faithful and this, slightly peculiar, underground music scene was about to break nationally. But it was all a far cry from the spiritual home of the music's roots which lay in the Bible Belt of the southeastern United States. It can be traced back to the late forties, to the birth of rhythm and blues, itself a hybrid of gospel, blues and hot jazz. A decade later, due to the rapid expansion of independent record labels (not least Detroit's Motown Records), R&B music inevitably found its way to these shores, and captured the imagination of insurance salesman and budding DJ Guy Stevens. Rhythm and Blues had arrived and buried deep in its grooves was the unmistakable dance beat that we call Northern Soul.

If you're looking for a collection of how the electric guitar changed a number of music genres, this is it. This collection does a good job across the entire gamut of the electric guitar, and how it was used in several genres. Included are good/great examples of blues, r&b, jazz, r'n'r, and even a little c&w. The digitally remastered sound is very good overall. The jump from genre to genre can be a bit jarring at times, but marveling at how the electric guitar can so easily fit into so many types of music makes the genre a non-issue. A good example is Disc 2. From "Maybelline" (Chuck Berry), to "Hide Away" (Freddie King), to "Have Guitar-Will Travel" (Scotty Moore Trio), to "West Coast Blues" (Wes Montgomery), to "Out Of Limits" (The Marketts), to "Taking Off" (Milton Brown And His Musical Brownies), To "Miss Ann's Tempo" (Grant Green), to "Guitar Bustin'" (Arthur Smith), to "Nuages" (Django Reinhardt), the scope of this collection is very wide.

The J. Geils Band was one of the most popular touring rock & roll bands in America during the '70s. Where their contemporaries were influenced by the heavy boogie of British blues-rock and the ear-splitting sonic adventures of psychedelia, The J. Geils Band was a bar band pure and simple, churning out greasy covers of obscure R&B, doo wop, and soul tunes, cutting them with a healthy dose of Stonesy swagger. While their muscular sound and the hyper jive of frontman Peter Wolf packed arenas across America, it only rarely earned them hit singles. Seth Justman, the group's main songwriter, could turn out catchy R&B-based rockers like "Give It to Me" and "Must of Got Lost," but these hits never led to stardom, primarily because the group had trouble capturing the energy of its live sound in the studio.
