Forgotten songs from the broom cupboard.

Jan 13, 2021

Okay he's a favourite, so its four from Harry Parry, Angry, Lonesome Road, I never knew(vocals: Primrose Hayes, can't find anything out about this woman) and Pontiac jump. We start though with Hot Lips Page and Randy Halls and the Tin fluters. Not on his hot trumpet but brilliant vocals. Much sadness, this record is cracked! Fantastic combination of Joe Sullivan(pictured) and Big Joe Turner next and the brilliantly titled: Low down, dirty shame blues.  I have a real soft spot for the unjustly neglected Joe Sullivan. He returns with the flip side, I can't give you anything but my love. Also up Harry Roy and Marjorie Kingsley, Roberto Inglez and Nat King Cole.  Another return to FS is Charlie Barnett. Wonderful, joyous fare, Ebony Rhapsody and I like to Riff. A decent copy of the magnificent Munson Street Breakdown has turned up, Utter brilliance from Lionel Hampton. We end with a 1950s song from the Tanner Sisters and a little bit of Culture from Maggie Teyte. She sees us out with with Plassir d'amour.
