Description

Rockin' Chair Boogie' Southern Bred Texas R&B Rockers (KMCD039) the journey into artists birth of places continues with this second Koko Mojo series of albums. Here we have the first exploration into the Lone Star State of Texas which serves up a hot bed of Rhythm 'N' Blues musical talent from artists born within this State. The concept of these albums allows to source a variety of wide-ranging choice of music chosen by the theme of birth, which makes the aural sound of the album different to that of a label-based collection. The music mix as always is eclectic and dynamic. Some of the artists featured include; the raw and raucous Little Esther, rocking doo-wop from Vernon Green and The Medallions, Joe Houston during his formative Freedom recordings, the mainly unknown Marcellus Thomas and Eddie Tex Curtis. The legendary Saxophone specialist Jesse Powell leads the band with sexual innuendos from Fluffy Hunter barely hidden. Rural bluesman Lightnin' Hopkins is rhythmic and authentic and from the formative years of Rhythm 'N' Blues, Peppermint Harris and Wild Bill Moore are developing the style. Party man Amos Milburn is the next stage of the music and his piano proficiency is unquestionable. He is featured twice, firstly with an up-tempo instrumental and closes the album with a thundering vocal rocker. This Koko Mojo album is compiled by well-known Dee Jay and face on the music scene Mark Armstrong, who has been Dee Jaying since his early teen years. Our albums have; stunning design, sleeve notes, 28 songs, mastered for the best possible sound available. The disc is housed in an attractively designed cardboard sleeve, specially constructed to avoid the use of plastic and be environmentally friendly. The album is great to play at home and perfect for Dee Jays who will find good dance-floor filling songs.
