As I wrote back in 2011 (five and a half years ago - help!), this is probably the best of the Pathe Marconi Amos Milburn collections. Apart from "It Took A Long Long Time", it's non-stop boogie, stomp, sway and rock from Amos, including the original 1948 hit version of "Chicken Shack Boogie." This is another much played LP, so there's quite a few clicks and pops along the way but that's what happens when you use your records the way the Good Lord intended them to be used. This stuff ain't for cataloging and filing away. This is the soundtrack for boozing, dancing and generally raisin' a ruckus. Go for it!

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."
