DELMORE BROTHERS 'The Later Years 1933-1952'

DELMORE BROTHERS 'The Later Years 1933-1952'

  • $27.50


This is the 2nd huge Delmore compilation from the British JSP label (the first is also available: JS--7727, also 4 CDs, $ 27.50). Close to half the tracks here are taken from the duo’s Bluebird recordings from 1933 to 1940, plus a few from their Decca material of 1941. The last two CDs feature their King recordings, both their older style simply accompanied duets like LAST OLD SHOVEL, SHE LEFT ME STANDING ON THE MOUNTAIN, KENTUCKY MOUNTAIN & PRISONER’S FAREWELL, as well as some of their “boogie” songs FREIGHT TRAIN BOOGIE, PEACH TREE STREET BOOGIE and their big hit BLUES STAY AWAY FROM ME. While some of their songs were redundant or rather ordinary, there were plenty of songs that were good to excellent, and this 97 cut set gives a really good cross-section of material of their unique style. Pat Harrison’s notes are pleasantly informative, and the sound quality of the transfers is quite decent, much better than average for this label. With some other earlier Delmore re-issues now out of print, this is a welcome re-issue, and a real bargain at just $ 27.50 for the 4-CDs
