Insanely RARE Chicago Jump Boogie Blues in just fabulous "impossible" unblemished condition.

Buckle up! "Cow Cow Shake" is gonna take you on a bumpy ride at full throttle! A crazed piano demolishing by Tommie "Blind Tom" Malone, growling vocal shouts by "Little Arch" this just revs-up to drag-racing intensity " Let's Do This Thing " action explodes into detonation when a stabbing saxophone wizzes into the session and the pianist just ain't being out played. The saxophone goes on the rampage..and the winner is everyone blown away on the dancefloor.. This is Jump Blues at it's most brutal.

Flip it over and "Blind Tom" has calmed down, now ready to deliver some strolling "Southside" Blues. But all the ingredients are still in place. Muscular Saxophone prowls menacingly throughout the session, intensive piano rattles away in unison. This side also gives-up one cool street-level Blues session, captured on vinyl somewhere back in time. Sorry to be vague but there is so little information out there... and we've never seen the record before.

The only way to hear this serious rarity is perhaps secure the various CD "Black Sippin' Rhythm" from Holland that seems to be the only route to ownership...

Stupidly RARE insane off-road Blues!
