Product Details

The fifth volume in a series that is capturing international attention and acclaim. This year's selection was accompanied by press and syndicated Christmas music articles from Document. As we revisit remaster, restore and finally reissue the whole canon of Blues and ethnic Christmas tracks, our research continues to be deeper and deeper, teasing out seasonal, musical obscurities and gems that had seemed lost to the public. This volume contains tracks that will surprise and delight with their reference to the coming of Christmas and then the New Year. Who would have thought that "Hellhound on my Trail" the blues classic from the legendary Robert Johnson would have made the cut but it does? Listen hard to the words and you will know why it was an obvious choice. We can say for same for the Bessie Smith platter too. In amongst the Blues Legends, there are the legends of French Gypsy Jazz rubbing shoulders with (or should that be violins?) with the likes of Country Legend, Bill Monroe and the lesser-known Little Joe Isbel. From vintage country to the earliest voices in Soul, Motown and the modern Black Masters. You will find the voices of a young Marvin Gaye and Lou Rawls and the mighty pen of Curtis Mayfield in this collection. Doo-wop and Gospel jostle for a place between Jazz and Bebop. Add 24 pages of informative and often humorous booklet notes written by Blues Expert and aficionado, Jeff Harris, host of "Big Road Blues", which airs on Sundays 5 to 7 PM (EST) on WGMC Jazz90, new info on some artists and add the detailed discographies, well, here you have a recipe for a Christmas treat that will be treasured and played for this and many Christmases to come.
