This is the second of four volumes of "Battle Of The Blues" that Joan K donated to the blog in 2008. Originally released in 1959, Volume 2 is a return bout between Roy Brown and Wynonie Harris, although this time the combatants opt for slow, moody blues songs rather than the all out rockin' R&B of the first volume. An interesting contrast in styles between the crying style of Roy and the hoarse voiced shouting of Wynonie. Superb musicianship on all tracks.

The remaining 2 volumes will be posted soon as will other requested re-ups (Tab Smith, early Earl Bostic, Count Hastings, and The Paragons Meet The Jesters.)

Have a bluesing good Sunday!
