Meet Me In The Bottom- Arkansas Blues Vol 2 THE BANDS
[ Stackhouse1916 ]
Price: $15.00

This is the long-awaited second volume in the Arkansas Blues series of field recordings produced by Louis Guida under a Bicentennial grant in 1976. Guida traversed the state to record in nightclubs, at artists' homes and inside a prison unit. The collection includes sides by Calvin Leavy (famed for the blues standard Cummins Prison Farm), Queen Bee & the Soul Seekers, a band of sisters led by guitarist Essie Smith, now known as Essie 'The Blues Lady' Neal; Harmonica Slim (Travis Blaylock, who recorded in California in the 1950s and '60s); Texarkana Five (featuring Nelson Carson, on guitar, along with Travis Matthews); guitarist Duke Bradley from Pine Bluff; the Sounds of Soul (featuring James Seals and Julius Gibson) from Osceola; and the Cummins Prison Band.  As expected, the performances are rough and exciting with a lot of covers of blues classics by Delta performers like Albert King- Larry Davis- Sonny Boy Williamson & The Carter Brothers.........

The first Arkansas Blues CD, Keep It To Yourself, featuring solo performances by CeDell Davis, Nelson Carson, Trenton Cooper and others, is also available. Compilation and liner notes on both volumes are by Louis Guida and Stackhouse owner Jim O'Neal, co-founder of Living Blues magazine
