Featured Album - Hollywood Blues (Part One)

Released in June last year, this two CD set on JSP contains more than 50 recordings from 1947 to 1953, all performed by blues artists in California. Although post war, each tune echoes with pre-war Country blues, evoking a world many black Americans left behind when migrating West from the South. As these tunes are hard to find on the web, reflecting the trouble compiler Neil Slaven has gone to in unearthing rare and sometimes previously un-issued material, each post is mostly limited to 2 selections.
