“Driftin' Blues,” “Black Night,” “Merry Christmas Baby” - these are but a few of Charles Brown's recordings that topped the R&B charts in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Charles Brown's mellow, sophisticated brand of blues was tailor-made for postwar Los Angeles nightclub audiences, who found it a refreshing contrast to the aggressive blues ...

The Ultimate Charles Brown CD/DVD 17 Jan. 2004
By William E Donoghue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This execellent performance captured in high definition sound and video and presented on CD and DVD is what all the hype about Charles Brown was all about. Hew was no reheated 1940s R&B hero; he was a 1990s jazz & blues entertainer and original of the first water. I saw him several times at Jazz Alley in Seattle and he charmed the crowd with his warm and unique blues. He was the original inspiration for Ray Charles and a contemporary of Nat King Cole before Cole stood up and stopped playing piano most of the time. Don't miss this CD/DVD set. It's the best Charles Brown had to offer and he sings his finest songs with the brilliant trio led by guitarist Danny Caron that accompanied him in the 1990s. A Must Buy!

Fabulous CD plus concert DVD! 14 Dec. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you love club blues, this is the ultimate Charles Brown collection. It features a bonus DVD that has a full concert from the '90's recorded in high def video and audio, showing Charles Brown and his band at the Lone Star in New York City, performing his classic hits, like "Driftin' Blues" and "Merry Christmas Baby." Plus two bonus films from the 40's and interview material. The CD is fantanstic--Charles Brown plays piano like a dervish, and sings with the cool style that inspired Ray Charles, Nat Cole, and a host of other artists. It also includes a 72 page book of liner notes, telling the fascinating Charles Brown story, along with a bonus discography. This new collection would be great for any blues or jazz fan.

Looks like another Greatest Hits- But It's Not! 26 Dec. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The cover is very misleading with the vintage photo and title. This but the song selection would lead you to believe this was a "Best Of" type CD- but it's not! It's a great live performance on CD and DVD, plus some other great stuff like his wedding shots to Mabel Scott (who has her own CD out, finally!), a discography and some Soundies (nothing great but they're something!). I saw Brown several times during the 1990s and this is a great package for remembering some great music. Now maybe we can get a King compliation CD!

A Life In The Blues, my review from Barcelona (sensational) 5 Oct. 2007
By Bluesman From Barcelona - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The better thing I've heard from the Kennedy's preferred Blues pianist and singer, the great Charles BROWN. 'A Life In The Blues' is recorded with crystalline clarity all the songs are in a very high level highlighting his standars "Driftin' Blues, "Black Night", "I Stepped In Quicksand" and so on that the high quality of the performances, makes the CD a five-stars CD besides the superlative performance of the guitar luminarie DANNY CARON. Highly recommended, 5 stars.
