My first night in Chicago, my friends they really treated me fine. And overnight, they all changed like Daylight-Saving-Time - Chicago Blues 1941 Lonnie Johnson

Sorry if this is slightly off topic being a 'later' blues artist but I have just purchased the double album - Black Rat Swing - The Collectors Jo-Ann Kell - on Castle Records (double CD for ?7.99) and am sat here listening to it.

It is good to be reminded just how vibrant teh 'blues' scene was in Britain back in teh 1960s. The collecxtion is sub-titled Jo-Ann Kelly a retrospective 1964-88.

Cheers

Steve.

Hi! Steve,
Is this a current album or second hand? I liked her a lot although I only have one album she made in 1968-69 called "Same thing on their mind" with Tony McPhee. As you say this was a big time here for the blues with quite a lot of the old bluesmen coming over.

Hi Boots,

Its certainly new to me - I have never seen teh item before on teh local CD shop shelves. However, something in teh back of my head seems to think that I have heard of teh collection (double CD) before in a magazine last year.

As I mentioned it is on Castle Music. This is a subsidiary of Sanctuary Records Group Ltd and the number is: CMDDD 596.  45 tracks over the 2 CDs.

I also have the vinyl with Tony McPhee - an album I used to play a lot.

Hope that helps.

Cheers and keep on pluckin'

Steve

Castle Music seems to be a cheapo label but they did an excellent remaster of the Robert Johns sides recently and if you are into jazz there are also a few goodies to choose from.
