(1947-63 'Delmark') (60:46/19) Um sieben zuvor unveröffentlichte Titel ergänzt, stellt dieses Album nach wie vor eine nicht-repräsentative doch äußerst anschauliche Übersicht dar. Andersweitig unveröffentlichte, erstklassige Aufnahmen / otherwise unreleased takes. 7 bonus tracks have been added to the CD version. Superb recordings in excellent quality.
Throughout the years blues piano playing has been overlooked. The reasons differed from era to era; these days guitar seems to be the most popular instrument. Here's an album that focuses on some of blues' best pianists including Otis Spann who has sparked as much interest in blues piano playing as anybody. When this album was first issued on Delmark LP none of the songs were available on any other albums. Now with seven more songs added you get a full hour of Blues Piano Orgy.
