One of the more obscure (today at least, not in his time) pre-war artists Bumble Bee Slim played a mixture of urban and country blues. And splendid stuff it is too.
This double Cd in the mostly excellent Classic Blues series features Bumble Bee Slim's sophisticated blues vocal accompanied either by guitar, piano or a small jazz style band with occasional duets with female singers.
Who were the other musicians? Did he play guitar or piano? These are questions (among others) the album notes entirely fail to answer. But so what! Just enjoy the music!
If you like pre-war blues with more than a hint of jazz then this album is for you.
