Description

'Hit The Road,' 'Southern Bred Texas R&B Rockers' (Koko Mojo KMCD040) we continue our theme of compiling an album from an artist's birth area. This Koko Mojo album is our second Rhythm 'N' Blues visit into Texas sand and again looks at the talent which was Texas Bred. 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, beginning with; piano boogie King Amos Milburn, also featured are, Lee Graves with Henry Hayes and also in the band is Goree Carter. From his formative years Joe Tex hollers an ode to food, which fellow Texan Ronnie Dawson covered many years later. Blues superstars, T-Bone Walker, Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, Pee Wee Crayton, and living legend Ray Sharpe add an interesting variety of sound as does the jazz-influenced boogie of Vivian Greene. 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 constructed cardboard sleeve, specially designed 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.
