Time for a bit of fun with some crackly old records. This is an expanded version of a compilation originally got together by Joan K way way back in the early days of the blog. Back in the days when we were proud to post old records that had been scratched to heck. There's a few like that here. Indeed I remember wondering if Joan had been dancing on the records or perhaps just using them as beermats. Whatever, this is the way that the Good Lord intended for us to hear rock 'n' roll and this stuff rocks like crazy.
I've added a few more sides in more respectable condition to the originals that Joan sent in. Back when I originally posted on Buster and B. Brown there was some confusion as to whether or not they were the same artist. Despite some similarities they are completely different people, although one can't help but suspect that B. Daniel Brown with "Fannie Mae Is Back", was trying to cash in on Buster's big hit "Fannie Mae."
All sides were recorded for Bobby and Danny Robinson owned labels between 1959 and 1962. Wild Jimmy Spruill is present on both artists' sides.
Jasmine Records have released a collection called "I'm Going But I'll Be Back" which has the complete Buster Brown and B. Brown output on the Robinson labels. 28 tracks in all, and a promise that the mystery of the Buster Brown / B. Brown relationship has been definitively solved.
Looks like it's worth buying! In the meantime have a Bebop Wino taster courtesy Joan K.
