Kicking off the requested Earl Bostic season of re-ups. I'll start with a couple of comps before throwing myself into the fraught matter of all those 1950s LPs and the stereo re-recordings, plus there will be a look at Bostic's wild years - the sides he recorded for Gotham before he went on to King Records and hit the formula which brought chart success and a veritable avalanche of LPs.

First off - this Oldie Blues collection has a great selection of early Bostic, mastered from 78s by the sound of it. Boptastic!

For some more details on these tracks, see this post of the LP from 2016:

 Stay slick, groovers.
