I've Got News for You collects a half-century's worth of sides by Hadda Brooks, who, in her 80s, continues to excel mightily at both boogie piano and cocktail-hour blues and pop. On disc 1 (''Hadda Sings''), classic performances such as ''That's My Desire'' and ''Dream'' sit beside new recordings of duets with Charles Brown and ex-Geraldine Fibber Carla Bozulich. The second CD (''Hadda Swings'') offers blistering instrumentals, including nine cuts made with Kansas City legend Pete Johnson. If yo

Throughout the history of jazz, mythical places like New Orleans's Storyville, Chicago's South Side, Kansas City's Tenderloin district, and New York's Harlem and 52nd Street were celebrated as the legendary hotspots. Thankfully, this impressive four-CD, 91-track collection featuring Nat ''King'' Cole, Louis Armstrong, and Benny Carter to name a few, puts Los Angeles's famous African-American enclave, Central Avenue, on the historical map and offers the listener a zoot-suited, jitterbugged jaunt

A descendant of Louis Jordan's Saturday-night fish fries and a contemporary of the proto-rock jump-blueser Wynonie Harris, Roy Brown was among the earliest of the R&B shouters. ''Good Rocking Tonight'' became a standard after Harris covered Brown's 1947 original; Elvis Presley later cut it for his second Sun Records disc. (Brown's own rewrite, ''Rockin' at Midnight,'' was plucked by Robert Plant for his Honeydrippers side project.) Brown also put his powerful voice to use on mournful down-tempo

One of a kind! 2001 issue of this absolute classic 1974 album of Funk/Soul/Jazz fusion, with 4 bonus tracks incl Strawberry Letter 23 Like Stevie Wonder and Allen Toussaint before him--and Prince and D'Angelo afterward--Shuggie Otis was a musical visionary whose early 1970s recordings showed he could do it all, writing, arranging, performing, and producing some of the decade's most satisfying, innovative, and, unfortunately, overlooked music.

The six-CD R&B Box is impressively ambitious, arching as it does from the ''race record'' era to the day before disco. Jump blues, boogie, postwar vocal groups, shouters and honkers, early rock & roll, doo-wop, and myriad varieties of soul music all rear their heads here; while the selections may often seem obvious to longtime listeners, the set will certainly knock out anyone new to the history of these sounds. --Rickey Wright

CONTAINS: FEEL LIKE GOING HOME: THE SOULD OF A MAN: THE ROAD TO MEMPHIS: WARNING BY THE DEVIL'S FIRE: GODFATHER'S AND SONS: RED WHITE & BLUES: AND PLANO BLUES. It may have been underrated when first broadcast on PBS on consecutive nights in the fall of '03, but executive producer Martin Scorsese's homage to the blues is a truly significant, if imperfect, achievement. ''Musical journey'' is an apt description, as Scorsese and the six other directors responsible for these seven approximately 90-mi

101 cuts from the most important post-WWII blues label, including 19 unreleased recordings and over two dozen singles making their album debuts (which means those with every Chess re-issue only own about half this set!). All the big names-Muddy, Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Boy, Little Walter, Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker-are here, along with a 64-page book with track-by-track credits and rare pix.

Fittingly enough for a set profiling the songwriter in Chicago blues, this not only features Willie performing some of his best-known tunes, but also has the performances by the artists-Bo Diddley ( Pretty Thing ); Muddy Waters ( Hoochie Coochie Man ) and Howlin' Wolf ( Spoonful )-that make them famous! 36 songs, 8 unavailable in the U.S., with booklet. Best known for his work as a songwriter, producer, and talent scout, singer-bassist Willie Dixon essentially built Chicago's Cobra and Chess lab

Johnny Otis is best known for his 1956 rock & roll hit ''Willie and the Hand Jive.'' But Otis--the son of Greek immigrants who chose to be personally and professionally identified as black--had enjoyed a successful career as a West Coast jazz drummer and R&B bandleader dating back to the mid-'40s. In 1950 alone, he scored three No. 1 R&B hits. This three-disc set collects all his recordings for Savoy between 1949 and 1952, as well as a handful of earlier sides, beginning with his 1945 version of

A CD release for the very rare Smokey Wilson album recorded for Big Town in the late 70s. Wilson was the natural successor to Howling Wolf, with a similarly astonishing voice, who produced some of the finest blues of the 70s. When many were succumbing to the over-processed sounds of the day, Smokey was still down and dirty like good blues ought to be. This is the first UK release for Smokey Wilson apart from two tracks that appeared on Lindi Waters' Cascade blues box. Many of the tracks were spe

Mercy Dee (born Mercy Davis Walton, August 3, 1915 December 2, 1962) was a jump blues pianist who found fame after spending years working the fields in Texas. Troublesome Minds is a testament to the natural talent Mercy Dee possessed when it came to picking up rhythms from his blues background and melding them with the style of Texas pianists. The junction of the two styles plus Mercy Dees own prolific lyricism made him into a popular singer and performer on not just the West Coast, but across t
