Original post (April 9th, 2011), which contains recording info, career summary and recommended listening is here:

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!
