FRANK HUTCHISON AND KELLY HARRELL 'Worried Blues-The Complete Commercial Output'

  • $27.50


The title of this bargain priced British 4-CD set is somewhat misleading, as most of the 99 cuts here are not Blues recordings as such. Actually, JSP has issued the complete works of four old time groups & artists, with the featured—and most salable—being the West Virginian Frank Hutchison: his 32 tracks are mostly on the bluesy side and there are a lot of neat pieces here like his CANNONBALL BLUES, OLD RACHEL, LAST SCENE OF THE TITANIC, LOGAN COUNTY BLUES etc. The other featured artist is Kelly Harrell, whose entire 43-song output is here as well, and the other two bands filling out the set are the Blue Ridge Highballers and the Tenneva Ramblers--we still have not figured out the common thread that links these 4 artists, but there’s plenty of good music here between the fine fiddle tunes of Clarley LaPrade (Blue Ridge Highballers) and the excellent singing of Kelly Harrell. Some of Harrell’s songs include schmaltzy studio backing, but with a fine group that included fiddlers Posey Rorer and Lonnie Austin he produced some other great sides like HENRY CLAY BEATTIE, CHARLES GUITEAU, and ROW US OVER THE TIDE. There are adequate notes here, and the sound quality is uneven—some cuts are clean, but a few are almost unlistenable for noise & distortion. Still, a lot of music for a bargain price of $ 27.50.
