Various – Raw Blues (Ace of Clubs 1967/Mono)

This week I have scored, for no more than 50 pence each, 4 LPs that simply should not be turning up in scruffy-down-at-heel thrift stores in down-town Yeovil.

Seems some dude/dudeette decided to offload a bucket-load of mostly blues discs – this one featured here being the first one I shall review.  On searching the web – seems an original Mono version of this in mint condition (which this is) is fetching 60 euros or more – so I suppose on a fat-cat-stock-broker-investment type-thang – I am quids in…..

What you get on this disc are a bunch of outtakes etc from early 60s blues-men – all in a nice mellow sort of fashion – not exactly what you might call ‘raw’ – but hey – some very fine stuff on here …

Highlights have got to be ‘Calcutta Blues’ from the mighty Champion Jack Dupree, along with ‘Pretty Girls Everywhere’ by Otis Spawn.   The disc is littered with collaborations from some hard-hitters such as Mayall/Clapton/Green, which I am sure if you are into this stuff you would totally dig.

Classic – early Sunday morning blues – which goes very nicely with the coffee and maple-syrup pancakes in from of me…
