3.0 out of 5 stars patchy, but some stone-cold classics in here 30 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
All the Blue Break Beats records are essential listening in my book. Sure, end to end listening can sometimes get a little afghan coat, but these albums have pure gold nuggets in amongst the beardy filler. Standout trax here are Gene Harris' funky, funky, funky version of "Don't Call Me Nigger Whitey" and Joe Williams utterly SMOKIN' "Get Out My Life Woman"....what an awesome groove, pool 'o' chocolate voice and a horn section that are so tight they must be underage. Alone , these two tunes are worth the price of admission. A wicked set.

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 Stars For "Put On Train" !!! 1 Feb 2012
By Tough Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Put On Train" is an amazingly great jazz piece. It is fresh, lively, funny, soulful and it makes you want to dance. Gene Harris plays the piano as energetically as ever, accompanied by the Three Sounds and what sounds to my ears like someone blowing the meanest, funkiest, brashest and most insolent jazz kazoo you can ever imagine! I have over 10,000 straight-ahead and bebop jazz mp3's on my drive, and this is my favorite one right now. This song should be our national anthem. The tragedy is that "Put On Train" was released on a Blue Note vinyl LP album ("Gene Harris / The Three Sounds" - Blue Note BST 84378) which was never re-issued as a CD. Finally, beware of the live version of "Put On Train" featured on the CD "Live at the IT Club - Volume 2", which is a good performance but IT LACKS THE KAZOO! And that funky kazoo is what really makes the studio version unbelievable.

3.0 out of 5 stars mediocre overall, but *does* have some "must have" tracks 29 Oct 2005
By jlg999 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The only reason to have this disc is if you have no other way to get the following must-have tracks:

* Ode To Billy Joe - Lou Donaldson (used by Mary J. Blige)

* Mystic Brew - Ronnie Foster (used by the Tribe Called Quest for Electric Relaxation)

* It's Your Thing - Lou Donaldson

* Dominoes - Donald Byrd

* Get Out Of My Life Woman - Joe Williams (used by Biz I think)

I'd add Walk Tall by Cannonball Adderley, but it's *not* the version I think people have heard of, which was fantastically used in Brand Nubian's Concerto In X Minor. For this, you need Walk Tall/Mercy, Mercy, Mercy from Adderley's 1975 Phenix album.

I was really happy to get Mystic Brew, Ode To Billy Joe, and Get Out Of My Life Woman, as I had never had them before. The Lou Rawls is a good slow groove. The Shirley Bassey is a good soul groove.

The songs I haven't mentioned don't do anything for me; I'd never really heard them before this disc either.

3.0 out of 5 stars volume 3, stretches the theme... 6 Jun 2009
By McG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the 3rd installment in the Blue Break Beats series.

As the previous reviewer say's - It is not a samplers record, it is a chance to hear the original tracks.

This series started life on double LP's - compiled by Dean Rudland and Eddie Pillar starting back in 1992 in the UK.
If you remember Acid Jazz, then these names will mean something to you, along with Gilles Peterson.

The proper title was "Blue Break Beats (You Gotta Hear Blue Note to Dig Def Jam)".

The idea of the collection was to draw peoples attention to the really excellent Blue Note tracks being sampled in the Hip Hop records everyone was listening to ('92).

This was way way before all the CD re-issues of the Blue Note Archive - we had to buy imports of the Japanese King re-pressings or go to Ray's Jazz shop and buy the originals.
The success of this compilation, lead to the Straight No Chaser re-issue selection, more compilations, the re-awakening of people's love of Jazz and the general re-availability of the Blue Note catalogue.

You can thank Acid Jazz for that.
