Here are two giants of the great '30s Chicago piano-and-guitar blues scene. Besides making superb records under his own name, singer/guitarist Tampa Red backed all sorts of vocalists in all sorts of styles. Much of the time he worked with pianist Georgia Tom, later a major gospel composer. You get some of both kinds here, including lots of the non-blues music. This is a simply ravishing set, deep and true and varied. There's only one solo cut. The rest are hardcore early blues band. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music
