4.0 out of 5 stars Around The Clock-original record, 29 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yet More Mellow Cats 'n' Kittens: Hot R&B and Cool Blues 1945-1951 (Audio CD)
This is an excellent issue in fine sound and some fascinating trax. Great to have the original "Thrill Is Gone" by Roy Hawkins, famously of course covered (and generally associated) later by B.B.King. Hawkins, dare I say it, easily rivals B..B.'s version. Also of much interest is "Around The Clock Blues" by Pearl Traylor-a new name to me and a fine singer.

The notes are informative with welcome pics. However,they are in error re date of Trixie Smith's original recording of "My Daddy Rocks Me" (basis of the Traylor title) which took place in c. September,1922; she did not re-record it until 1938 when she did two more versions. Also think mention should have been made of Big Joe Turner's excellent version of 'Clock' in 1947.

Well-worth buying, I look forward to the remaining four? of the 'Mellow Cats' series. And did Ace produce the Mickey Champion CD promised for 2008?
