Sun Blues Box liner notes
« on: August 28, 2017, 11:23:33 PM »
Does anyone have the Sun Blues Box?

https://www.amazon.com/Sun-Blues-Box-Memphis-1950-1958/dp/B00BPQ6P66/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1503987602&sr=8-1&keywords=sun+blues+box&tag=weeniecampbel-20

If so, can you tell me what its liner notes say about "Shorty the Barber" by Charlie Burse?

I'm afraid I only have the 1950-1958 Sun Records The Blues Years (1996). Charly Records.

All that states is probably May - line up thus:

CHARLIE BURSE, vocal/probably guitar: Mickey Mathis or Lotis Stevenson or Bunny Hall, saxophone; probably Robert Burse, drums.

Not much use I'm afraid.

I posted a comment to that YouTube video, and the poster just replied with some extensive but unattributed info. I wonder if that came from these liner notes?

I have it at home. I'm at work right now, but I'll check later if no one has responded by then.

Thanks. It looks like the poster of the YouTube video deleted the comments for some reason. But this is the web page he pulled it from:

Lots of fascinating info here, but most of it is unattributed and I'm looking for some confirmation from an authoritative source.

Looks like the website you referenced pulled their notes directly from the box set. Here's what the "Sun Blues Box" book says regarding that track...
