The Frog Blues & Jazz Annual No 2
The long awaited Frog & Blues Annual No 2 is finished and looks fantastic.
New original research and articles by Mark Berresford, Paul Swinton, Bruce Bastin, Russ Shor, Alex Van Der Tuuk, Howard Rye, Chris Hillman and many others. 'Blues & Jazz Advertised' from the era of the 78 record plus reprints of many 'lost' interviews and articles from the artists themselves. And more stunning original portrait artwork by Chris Powell.
176 packed full colour A4 pages of text with over 180 photographs and illustrations, many previously unpublished.
From Stan Atkins to Edmonia and Fletcher Henderson, Blind Joe Taggart to King Oliver, Robert Johnson to Freddie Keppard and Clarence Williams to Sylvester Weaver.
They're all here, and more, in the number two edition of this exciting publication.
Each copy comes with a complimentary 26 track CD that includes many classic recordings as well as previously unissued rarities, test pressings, vanity & field recordings plus alternative takes by some of the greatest (and obscure) Blues & Jazz artists of the 20s and 30s. Remastered to perfection by Nick Dellow.
