CD Reviews

Great music
K. Parent | Daejeon | 01/27/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Floyd's early music can be found on three CDs, though two of them are getting harder to find. Cow Town Blues contains his earliest sides, from 1948-1950. This one spans the years 1949-1952, and Marshall Texas is my Home covers 1953-1957 and is the one that contains the original 'Hey Bartender.' Then Floyd disappeared for 40 years, living in a skid-row hotel at one point, and then started cutting some find music again in 1992 and is still going at it today.

The main reason I'm writing this though is to counter another review that says there's no liner notes. Mine came with a 27-page booklet full of well-composed liner notes and a sessionography, as did every other release in this series, with varying page counts. That reviewer must have gotten a bad (or used?) copy."
Excellent West Coast blues

"If you love Charles Brown style blues.. this is similiar stuff with a bit more jump to it. That may sound like I`m damning it with faint praise,..NO WAY!! Charles Brown is the king of the heap as far as this kind of music goes. This is great material sung by a master. If your in second place to a Michael Jordan.. that doesn`t mean you can`t 'ball" :)"

"A wonderful primer. Very enjoyable collection and worth obtaining if you know little but want to hear more - BUT beware, there are almost no liner notes ... which is a big omission for such a large collection of songs."
