Sugar Boy with the Canecutters - Overboard / I Don't Know What I'll Do - Checker 783

Sugar Boy with the Canecutters

Overboard / I Don't Know What I'll Do

Checker: 783 (45s)

New Orleans visits Chicago.

We start with the original flipside "Over Board" an insane Blues R&B dancer featuring crazed saxophone support, as a breathlress Sugar Boy Crawford shouts out his message. Sugar Boy's 1st 45 for Leonard Chess, when he signed for the soon to become Chicago giant of the blues label Chess. Chess on his next release "dropped" wisely droped the derogatory group name "The Canecutters" but his backing boys were just as potent as his other highly regarded 45s that followed. As ever this double helping of 1953 New Orleans inspired R&B features two songs written by the talented "Sugar Boy" himself.

Impressive early 50's R&B/Blues which ever side you drop the arm on, backed up with a vivid mix of saxophone and stabbing piano notes. By comparison with his other work, "I Bowed On My Knees" is a bluesy slow-mournful-lament with Mr. Crawford revealing in despair as the old-tale of his lady leaving him, unfolds.

The original a-side "I Don't Know What I'll Do" showcases Sugar Boy takes a slower stance, using the same recipe of a wailing saxophone and slow-drag piano notes. Mournful Blues depicting rejection, proper street Blues saturated in New Orleans characteristics, by the ending Sugar Boy signs off with some convincing sobbing. That makes you flip it back over to the exuberant stomping "Overboard"

Laurel Aitken

Shake / Propoganda

Ska Beat : JB. 236 (45s)

The first of two Laurel Aitken 45s on this highly coveted label UK Ska Beat.

"Shake" not the Sam Cooke anthem but an effervescent Rocky Steady mover crammed full of innovative instrument manipulation. An uplifting Laurel vocal delivery is brilliantly driven by by a cocktail of horns, inventive off-beat saxophone blows, relentless motivational percussion ringing out with cowbells, drumstick collisions, rimshots a full kitchen-sink backdrop. Carrying Laurels "New Dance" from Kingston Town.

an animated Rock Steady frolic of the most memorable kind.

The flipside is more conventional, but still presenting lively, dancefloor ingredients as Laurel again delivers top-drawer Rock Steady.

Errol Dunkley - Keep The Pressure Down / Pressure Down - Ackee ACK 507

Errol Dunkley

Keep The Pressure Down / Pressure Down

Ackee : ACK 507 (45s)

Superb early Roots, showcasing Errol's vocal prowess perfectly. Some consider Mr. Dunkley singing as one of the most expressive vocals to emerge from the Island of Jamaica. His consummate ability to raise and lower his vocal delivery, decorated with smooth rasping from the back of his culture throat. So impressive is his voice when woven into swirling Hammond keyboard rhythms.

Addictive pulses pull you in, Errol's voice ensure you say there for more than one listen; I'm captivated on my fourth hearing..

This tune has everything!
