CD Reviews

Fun blues influenced Vaudevillian act...
Aaron The Baron | 09/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Butterbeans & Susie are a fun loving blues/vaudevillian act. They were often accompanied by top notch jazzmen of the day like Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bachet, King Oliver, Lovie Austin & Her Serendaers, Clarence williams, et. al. This CD covers some great years for them 1926-1927, the later part of the 20's blues craze, there are plenty of classic and fun performances here. Some highlights include the comedic blues number "Let The Doorknob Hit you In The Back" and the somewhat raunchy "I Wanna Hot Dog For My Roll." Recommedned to classic blues collectors."
True African-American folk humor!
Andre M. | Mt. Pleasant, SC United States | 07/20/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you want the REAL, raw, uncut black comedy and folk humor that would appear in African-American theaters and nightclubs at the time, THIS is where you'll find it. BB&S were the King and Queen of double-entendre and catch phrases. "Your folks will wear Black" is a funny dialougue threatening mock violence and "Let the doorknob hit you" is a clever way of telling someone to get lost,. But BB&S' ALL TIME CLASSIC "I Want a Hot Dog For My Roll" is not to be missed here. Their most famous record, it's a risque gag about BB adveritsing his wares as a "Hot Dog" man to Susie, who is dissatisfied with what he has to offer. Read (or listen) between the lines and you'll get the point. This was considered shocking and vulgar for its time, but is considered classy and clever today."
