5.0 out of 5 stars One of the blues most sophisticated guitarists. 11 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This excellent collection contains best solo performances and collaborations by one mighty guitar player. Mostly known for his instantly evident sound in his collaboration with piano bluesman Leroy Carr, he also produced some breath taking solo works. Included here is Kokomo Blues, which reveals the undisputed roots to Kokomo Arnold's Old Original Kokomo Blues and Robert Johnson's Sweet Home Chicago. Like no other bluesman, I know Blackwell's music and rhythm, stands in balance between the "country" and "city" blues. As documented in the detailed CD notes, he anticipated instrumental breaks, but never stretched them beyond need. His playing and singing are sophisticated and to keep to the argument, composed. The sound quality is excellent and inner notes about Scrapper's guitar techniques very well written. A very important and enduring artist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pathos at Its Hilarious Finest 23 Aug 2001
By Acnoth - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is a CD designed to emphasise the guitar playing of Scrapper Blackwell, a blues guitarist of the late 1920s and 1930s. It also showcases the piano playing of Blackwell's long-time partner, Leroy Carr. In fact, as good as Blackwell definitely is, I found that it is the piano playing of Carr that holds much of the CD together. His playing underscores Blackwell's guitar by providing a very solid bass rhythm that provides the fundamental basis for the toe-tapping style behind many of the tracks. A prime example of this is the fantastic "Barrelhouse Woman No. 2." The themes found on the CD are the normal classic blues themes, although they are definitely flavoured by a northern urban environment, as is most glaringly demonstrated by "Down South Blues," a litany of yearning for the south as seen by a transplanted southerner(Blackwell played out of Indianapolis). Another theme is alcohol. "Whiskey Man Blues" is hilarious, but at the same time the celebration of unrepentant over-consumption has gloomier overtones. Finally, for just sitting back and listening to some excellent guitar picking, Blackwell is a treat, and definitely worth the price of admission.

I had no idea who Scrapper Blackwell was until I heard him on "Blues Unlimited" hosted by "Sleepy Boy" Hawkins. You can really hear the Genesis of many of our favorites Blues artists in his music. "Blues Unlimited" originates at KXCI radio in Tucson, but is syndicated nationwide. You can also listen on the internet. You'll learn a lot.
