Bo Carter & the Mississippi Sheiks - new JSP box set
« on: February 18, 2012, 06:32:43 AM »
Bo Carter & the Mississippi Sheiks also featuring Charlie McCoy & The Chatmon Brothers turned up among my 'recommendations' at Amazon, appears to be new, I don't recall it being mentioned before.
[float=right][/float]
Compiled and annotated by Neil Slaven, 100 cuts, great value at $27.71 (assuming the sound is good) as usual from JSP. Here's a link to the Amazon page.

Discussed here: http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=3098.msg67402#msg67402

Not a complete Bo set, more a Bo, Sheiks, Blacksnakes, McCoy, Chatmon compilation.

Thanks Andrew. There seems to be plenty of material on there that I don't seem to have so I'll be getting it.

I got it, I love Waterloo Records. Review later when I've had a chance to listen & read.

I have found this to be quite an enjoyable listen even though I have several tracks elsewhere, there is a flow and consistency that makes for a satisfying listening experience.

I agree.

I also agree. It's a very entertaining program and has a nice musical sound throughout, production-wise.

Surface noise is low. So if you dig surface noise this may not be for you. :P At the same time, distortion I can hear clearly, if that's not a contradiction, on other transfers of the same songs I happen to have in my collection is pretty much gone.

The cover note font is so tiny as to be unreadable, at least to me. I'm going to scan them so I can blow them up, since I generally enjoy reading Neil Slaven's take on things.

Psycho-acoustics are in play; you have to listen to a few tracks to catch the atmosphere and it's all good from there. You still need your Old Hat version of Alma Waltz though.

And as I mentioned there are many tracks I don't have elsewhere so I's happy.
