Calvin Boze Special!



Following on from the Roy Milton re-ups here are some more new links to primo West Coast jump blues in the shape of 2 re-upped Calvin Boze LPs. The original Calvin Boze posts prompted email correspondence with friends and family of Calvin and the uncovering of previously unknown information about this accomplished but relatively unknown artist.

The post on the Route 66 LP "Choo Choo's Bringing My Baby Home" contains a whole load of info, anecdotes from Bobby Rivers, recommended purchases, and label scans from Joan K and El Enmascarado. It is, if I may say so myself, R&B heaven!

My first post on Calvin Boze was back in June 2008. It featured the Moonshine LP "Havin' A Ball" which may have some dodgy sound quality but is still tremendous fun. I think "tremendous fun" may be the best description of Calvin's music!

I also wrote a post on Calvin's best known track "Safronia B" which featured extensive streaming audio which was lost in the divshare meltdown and which I haven't yet replaced. Despite that, the post still has background info which makes it worth reading:



One more time - tremendous fun! Keep jumpin', cats 'n' kittens!

Hey Boogiewoody,
I wonder if you have a rip of Ron Feuer's "Vital Organ" or "Hammond' Cheese"? Sorry to be off topic but I didn't know where else here to ask.
Cheers
Stefan

Hi Stefan

Sorry, I have no Ron Feuer in my collection. I listened to some of his tracks on YouTube. Er ... his style of organ playing isn't to my taste! Good luck in finding Ron!
