In response to a request for a re-up, here's this 1985 Pathe Marconi collection of tracks originally released on Philo / Aladdin, Capitol and Imperial. Betty Hall Jones is very much the star here. Her combination of piano tinkling, sophisticated wit and dry vocal delivery is reminiscent of Julia Lee and Nellie Lutcher.

2. Cleo Brown - Cleo's Boogie
3. Addie Williams - Maybe Someday

This is a site dedicated to rockin' 1940s and 1950s music, ripped from vinyl. Some cuts are a bit on the rough side. If you're looking for audio perfection you're on the wrong site baby! If you like what you hear on this site please buy this kind of music. There are many reasonably priced reissues available from web dealers or perhaps from your local record shop, if it still exists. These reissues will be in far better sound quality than the vinyl rips on this site and they will usually have more up to date liner notes and info, so go out and splash a little cash now and again. Help keep those reissue labels going in these difficult times.
No in-print CDs will be posted here. In fact no CDs will be posted here. I will occasionally list recommended purchases to help you hear more from artists featured on the blog.
"The night is the corridor of history, not the history of famous people or great events, but that of the marginal, the ignored, the supressed, the unacknowledged; the history of vice, of error, of confusion, of fear, of want; the history of intoxication, of vainglory, of delusion, of dissipation, of delirium."
