"Actually I was very surprised... jump blues on Blue Note?
Well, not quite...
Most (but not all) of the selections on this album come from the Imperial and Alladin labels... only one single is an actual Blue Note reissue...
that said, many of the sides until recently were quite rare, nearly forgotten and hard to find...
liberated from the vaults, this selection of hard swinging and grooving jump blues spanning the late 40's until 1960 will disappoint few fans of classic Rock and Roll/R&B, though it might be pointed out that there's a similar 2 CD collection that's even higher on my list, the now out of print Capital JUMPIN' LIKE MAD compilation.
Still, while some tracks are duplicates, others are rarities that I don't think are available anywhere else... and personally speaking, even though tunes like Safronia B, I Ain't Drunk and Fine Brown Frame can be found else where, I have no complaints about sitting through them again and again and again anyhow...
In the end, the presence of the BLUE NOTE label did have an impact on my decision to purchase the CD when in retrospect the album seems to have little to do with the Blue Note catalog, but all in all I don't care...
I love Jump Blues and this CD has 26 tracks of it at its best... no complaints."
