SMOKEY HOGG『Sings the Blues』LP

Format: LP

★First complete limited edition
★Original jacket with reverse pasting

Smokey Hogg, one of the giants of post-war Texas country blues. This LP reissue of his album, which was compiled from 1947-51 for Modern Records, which recorded more than a third of all his recordings, was released on the Modern-affiliated Crown label in 1961. The songs, which can only be described as free-spirited, are simply the best! The bar counts are a bit of a joke, perhaps because he was an alcoholic, but the throwaway, belabouring songs really sink in. The dry, breezy tone of the guitar is also very tasteful, and there is a certain charm to this wildness, unprecedentedness and tenor that, once you get into it, you can't get out. The 12 songs are in full Hogg mode, singing whatever comes to mind, as he pleases, including another take of the hit Good Morning Little School Girl (originally by Sunny Boy Issei, of course). Piano from Hada Brooks, the queen of boogie, who was also a label mate, is also a treat to listen to. In Crown's famous 'beauty jacket' design.
