Format: Audio CD
The late Lonesome Sundown (real name, Cornelius Green) singer, songwriter and guitarist, was one of the more versatile of the Excello roster of artists. Though he was prone to use a variant on Lightnin' Slim's slow blues structure - when he did it was respectful rather than mere copycat style - he would also fashion numbers very much the way he wanted. Part of this possibly came from his early career when he lived in Port Arthur, Texas, and worked in the band of the renowned accordionist Clifton Chenier alongside another Port Arthur resident, the great (and also late), Texan guitarist, Phillip Walker. So it's quite likely that touches of both zydeco and Texan guitar blues had rubbed off on him. This album contains most of the tracks he recorded for Excello outside of a few singles.

His very first single is here; it's "Lost without Love" . This was the one contained on the demo tape that he took to Jay Miller, the Excello producer in Crowley, Louisiana. It's a slow blues with a repeated guitar riff as intro, and it's one we're to hear many more times on this album - there are seven in total. The titles give an idea of the serious, sometimes tragic subject matter, "I stood by", "Lonely, Lonely Me", "Sundown Blues", "I woke up cryin' (oh what a dream)", "Hoodoo Woman Blues", "Lost without Love", "My home is a prison". The last named is possibly his most famous with Lazy Lester backing up beautifully on mouth harp but I rather like "Sundown Blues" as a name since it seems so apt. Vocally Sundown delivers with passion but doesn't go overboard. Instrumentation varies and the effect is not as repetitive as one might have thought. This is Sundown's version of the archetype slow swamp blues. Lightnin' Slim has his own archetype which is very similar.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
About 20 years ago, I found an Excello compilation Sounds Of The Swamp in a bargain bin. I recognized two names -- Lazy Lester and Slim Harpo -- so I bought it. I have since bought albums by four other artists on that one compilation -- Lightnin' Slim, Warren Storm, Carol Fran, and now Lonesome Sundown. Nothing fancy here. It's not going to change the world. But if you want good listening straight-ahead blues, you can't go too far wrong with this album, from the opening Gonna Stick To My Baby to the final cut -- a surprise -- Lonesome Whistler. If you're looking for guitar pyrotechnics, you won't find it here. Lonesome Sundown's voice will soothe those blues away. My advice: check out those bargain bins.
