New releases from Frog Records
« on: April 17, 2018, 02:16:05 PM »
FROG CD DGF86.  BOBBIE LEECAN ? ?Suitcase Breakdown?


This is an issue long overdue. Guitar maestro Bobbie Leecan?s very best recordings with his own Need-More Band and South Street Trio. As accompanist & soloist, together with Robert Cooksey, Elizabeth Smith, Alberta Hunter and on classic band recordings with leaders Fats Waller, Thomas Morris, Eddie Edinborough and others. Plus his only known solo recordings (issued as Blind Bobby Baker) taken from one of the rarest known blues/jazz 78s.

Remastered by Nick Dellow with notes by Guido van Rijn.

They also have a new Fletcher Henderson compilation and The New Orleans box set sounds very exciting:

Also in preparation are three further rare & hot jazz & blues releases plus a deluxe ?special? New Orleans boxset complete with 6 CDs and luxury book.

And of course, the sixth (and last) Frog Blues & Jazz Annual - with complimentary disc of rarities.  The Annual won't be ready for The Asheville Shellac Bash - like last year. But the Frog team will be there again and then moving on to New Orleans collecting, researching,and having fun!.

Watch here for further news and details.

Paul Swinton ? Frog Records.

Highly recommended. I picked it up at the Shellac Bash and it's been in heavy rotation since. Thanks.

Thanks. Looking forward to the next Blues & Jazz Annual as always. Also wonder what can be found in the New Orleans box set and their new blues releases.
