CD Reviews

Classics from a Classic
Eric Ryan | CA USA | 05/17/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Lady could sing! She brings life to these songs and sounds as if she was having a blast while singing them. House of Blue Lights is my favorite! It was a song that Little Richard mentioned in Good Golly Miss Molly even! Classic then and Classic now. She was so underrated and should be a house hold name but I digress. And I am not just saying that cause she was my Grandmother either....even though she was. I Love and miss you Granny! You still ROCK!"
As a 6th grade boy she was my main boogie-woogie mama

"I want to let all know this one thing: no one sang boogie woogie better than Ella Mae Morse. White nor black. Period. She was the swingingest singer around back in my schoolboy days, and if she were still alive today (she died in 1999) she would be declared a national treasure. It is a shame that someone so purely talented as this great woman was overlooked in her later years. I was thrilled to see that her grandson gave us a review on this website. If all you ever hear is Freddie Slack's fabulous "Cow Cow Boogie" you will be hooked. I place her in the same firmament with Anita O'Day.By the way, to date myself, in 1952 I was in the 6th grade and one of the top hits in LA was "Blacksmith Blues" by Ella Mae Morse. This woman was also considered one of the first "rockabilly" stars. She could sing it all from country to rock to boogie and jazz. This is a definite buy."

"Ella Mae Morse must indeed be the most black-sounding white woman ever to record. I've read her recollection before of the shock of Sammy Davis, Jr., to discover that she was white! No one else who has tried the "Cow Cow Boogie" or "House of Blue Lights" or "Forty Cups of Coffee" has ever come close to Morse's delivery. This is music with nothing to prove. It's just flat fun to listen to! It'll brighten up anyone's day. I've listened a lot while I clean house!"
