Product Notes

2022 collection that presents an overview of the New York blues scene in all it's variety from the post-World War II years through it's golden age into the 1960s. There is also a look at the city's 1980s-90s revival with author Larry Simon's Killing Floor NYC Band backing many pioneering bluesmen. On our journey, we travel from the early Piedmont country blues of Blind Boy Fuller through to the tough street sounds of Harlem blues and R&B. New York's hitmakers and songwriters are not forgotten, either, nor are the label owners. The standout studio musicians are a real bonus, featuring top guitarists "Wild" Jimmy Spruill and Mickey "Guitar" Baker. This Ace CD brings welcome focus on the neglected New York blues scene. The well-illustrated package is enhanced by detailed notes from Simon and John Broven with excellent photographs by Robert Schaffer, Val Wilmer and Paul Harris.
