1 - BLIND BLAKE - THAT WILL HAPPEN NO MORE - (LP) 
MONK


After their success with Blind Lemon Jefferson, Chicagos Paramount was scouting for more male blues talent, and they found it in 1926 in a man called Blind Blake (1893-1933), a sophisticated guitar player who was the antithesis of Delta blues. Like many, he played his guitar like a piano but few did it with the talent of this man. Called the "King of Ragtime-blues", no one had fingers as fast as Blind Blake, but by 1933 he was dead (some say his drinking killed him). These recordings taken from 1927-28 are a collection of Blind Blakes early material, showcasing the man at his musical peak, before alcohol began to take its toll.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Bad Feelin' Blues 02. Dry Bone Shuffle 03. That Will Happen No More 04. Brownskin Mama Blues 05. Hard Road Blues 06. Hey Hey Daddy Blues 07. Sea Board Stomp 08. You Gonna Quit Me Blues 09. Steel Mill Blues 10. Southern Rag 11. He's In The Jailhouse Now 12. Wabash Rag 13. Doggin' Me Mama Blues 14. C C Pill Blues 15. Hot Potatoes 16. Southbound Rag 17. Pay Day Daddy Blues 18. Elzadie's Policy Blues

2 - BLIND BLAKE - THE LONESOME RAVE - (LP) 
MONK


Presumably born in Jacksonville, FL in 1893, Blind Blake came to prominence recording for Paramount from 1926 until the label closed in 1932. In fact, Blake was Paramounts best-selling and most recorded artist, with over a hundred sides to his name. Blake-one of the greatest blues guitarists of all time-is best known for his development of the "ragtime" guitar style, the sheer complexity of which has baffled would-be imitators for the past eight decades. His mastery of this approach was so complete that none have ever come close to being able to imitate him. The tracks on this LP were recorded in the Paramount Studios in Chicago in May of 1928, with blues singer Bertha Henderson on vocals on "That Lonesome Rave", Leavin Gal Blues" and several others. Guest vocalists also appear on "Beulah Land" (Daniel Brown) and "Elzadies Policy Blues" (Elzadie Robinson). Many of these songs have long been considered early American blues classics.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Good-bye Mama Moan 02. Tootie Blues 03. That Lovin I Crave 04. That Lonesome Rave 05. Terrible Murder Blues 06. Leavin Gal Blues 07. No Dough Blues 08. Lead Hearted Blues 09. Let Your Love Come Down 10. Rumblin & Ramblin Boa Constrictor Blues 11. Bootleg Rum Dum Blues 12. Detroit Bound Blues 13. Beulah Land 14. Panther Squall Blues 15. Elzadies Policy Blues

3 - BLIND BLAKE - THE VANISHED BLUESMAN IN RICHMOND - (LP) 
MONK


After their success with Blind Lemon Jefferson, Chicagos Paramount was scouting for more male blues talent, and they found it in 1926 in a man called Blind Blake (1893-1933), a sophisticated guitar player who was the antithesis of Delta blues. In fact, Blake soon became Paramounts best-selling and most recorded artist, with over a hundred sides to his name. Blake-one of the greatest blues guitarists of all time-is best known for his development of the "ragtime" guitar style, the sheer complexity of which has baffled would-be imitators for the past eight decades. His mastery of this approach was so complete that none have ever come close to being able to imitate him. These recordings from 1929 are a collection of sessions Blake recorded for Paramount in the Gennett Studios in Richmond, Indiana. Blake is accompanied by Charlie Spand on piano on several tracks. Spand was the king of the 1920s barrelhouse piano style and one of the most influential piano players of his day.
