Hoy en día en que la música es accesible desde cualquier plataforma digital y el aficionado puede confeccionar sus propias listas de canciones, se hace más necesario que nunca la publicación de álbumes que recojan la historia del blues y sus nombres más relevantes. Este es el caso de la compañía austriaca Wolf Records que, desde hace varias décadas, no ceja en el empeño de ofrecer a los aficionado excelentes grabaciones históricas de grandes bluesmen que forjaron este estilo, como es el caso del disco que ahora presentan del gran bluesman Homesick James, representante del mas puro y genuino blues del Chicago South Side. El álbum incluye doce temas grabados en 1979 y 1980 en Austria y otros cinco grabados en Chicago por Christoph Steffl y Hannes Folterbauer propietario de Wolf Records y merecido ganador del premio Keeping The Blues Alive, que otorga anualmente la Blues Foundation a aquellas personas o entidades que llevan toda una vida trabajando por mantener viva la llama del blues. La mayoría de las canciones nos presentan a Homesick James tocando la guitarra y cantando en solitario, mientras en otras está acompañado por su inseparable compañero en el blues, el maravilloso cantante y armonicista Snooky Pryor y en algunas más por Hans Dujmic a la guitarra y Fritz Ozmec a la batería. Un disco histórico que debe tener un lugar destacado en la colección de cualquier aficionado al blues más genuino. IMPRESCINDIBLE.

Today that music is available from any digital platform and interested people can download and build up their own song lists, it becomes more necessary than ever that record labels publish albums that let people know the blues history and their most relevant names. This is the case of Austrian label Wolf Records which, for several decades, devotes their efforts to the incredible task of giving excellent historical recordings by the great bluesmen who forged this style to blues followers, as is the case of the album they present now by great bluesman Homesick James, one of the greatest representatives of the most genuine Chicago South Side blues. The album gathers twelve songs recorded in 1979 and 1980 in Austria and five other recorded in Chicago by Christoph Steffl and Hannes Folterbauer, Wolf Records owner and deserved winner of the Keeping the Blues Alive Awards by the Blues Foundation that every year recognize people or organizations which have devoted a lifetime working to keep the blues alive. Most of the songs present Homesick James playing guitar and singing solo, while in some others he is backed by his inseparable blues partner, great singer and harmonica player Snooky Pryor. Finally, in some other ones you will also find Hans Dujmic on guitar and Fritz Ozmec on drums. This is an historical recording that deserves a prominent place in any genuine blues lover collection. ESSENTIAL.
