Funny Feathers. Art Hodes. Six Wheel Chaser. Farish Street Jive. Mister Black Man. Beulah's Sister's Blues by Lionel Hampton, 6. Yancey Special by Meade Lux Lewis, 9. Pinetop's Boogie by Sam Price, and Tatum-Pole Boogie by Art Tatum, for a total of 64 minutes 17 seconds, while the album has Two Finger Boogie by Lionel Hampton, Dizzy Boogie by Slim Gaillard, for a total of 64 minutes 44 seconds. The remainder of the songs are identical on the two albums.
Is it worth getting both albums? Why not? They are cheap enough, and it doesn't hurt to have a backup copy of these original hit classics by the original artists. The music on both albums sounds quite good considering the age of the music sources. A few songs are a little scratchy sounding and were probably recovered from 78's, but overall both albums have acceptable fidelity.
Take your pick, or just pick both and be done with it. Life is too short to sweat too much over the small decisions. This CD set has well over original boogie-woogie recordings, from the 's into the 's. The only real drawback - and I knew this before ordering - is, outside of the name of the artist and the title of the tune, there is not a speck of discographal information - no recording dates or places, no personnel listings, which means doing some research, especially on the Big Band boogie cuts.
Since I own an extensive boogie discography, this is not a real hassle - actually, it's a great memory test. As for the sound quality, some of these recordings date back to the late 's, and the sound on those - even on more expensive collections - has never been great, but compared to a few major label CD anthologies, I don't hear any major flaws.
Most of these recording will be immediately familiar to longtime boogie-woogie fans, but there are a few that I have not had on CD, and they add to the set's overall value. The discs are encased in printed cardboard sleeves, which does an adequate job of protecting the CDs - and these are in a compact, heavier-cardboard container that seems durable enough.
For the price, this is a very good set. I purchased this set back in September of '09 at the personal suggestion of that fine reviewer, Tom W. To paraphrase an anonymous Chinese sage however, one listen is worth a thousand words. Source material condition varies from pretty good to excellent. Even the more "loved" sides have an aural authenticity that can't be denied.
Styles sampled here include washboard and straight blues, honky tonk and barrelhouse pianer plus the purest solo boogie you've ever heard.
Thanks, Tom! Very good compilation on the boogie woogie fad in the forties. Very good doctor-up job to eliminate surface noise of original recordings without sacrificing vital frequency range. I enjoyed every minute of this CD presentation.
