VARIOUS ARTISTS DETROIT GHETTO BLUES 1948-1954 Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
Although Detroit is usually associated with Jackie Wilson and Andre Williamss R&B and sensational 60s soul phenomenon Motown, the Motor City had a solid crew of straight-up bluesmen, and this set features some fine examples of the citys post-war era practitioners. The performances are wild - Walter Mitchells Pet Milk Blues with its audacious, feuding harmonicas and eerie shrieks sets the albums tone, while funky homeboy Robert Mitchells raunchy remake of the murderous, VD-themed lament Somethings Wrong really goes the full route. Along the way you get a slew of rare gems from the likes of Slim Pickens, L.C. Green and the wonderful Baby Boy Warrens good rockin Hello Stranger (featuring Sonny Boy Williamsons brilliant harmonica) and Bad Lover Blues which cogently sums up Detroits sixteen cylinder aesthetic: Just because hes got a Cadillac with that hydromatic drive, you dont ask him for no money, all you want to do is ride
