Blowing the Fuse is a killer series of compilation CDs issued by Germany's premier archivist label, Bear Family. Subtitled "R&B Classics That Rocked the Jukebox," each volume is compiled by year. 1949 was a boom year for jukeboxes across the United States. This volume, like most of the others, contains 28 affirmed classics of the early postwar years though some of these titles have been obscured a bit by history. Assembled by Dave "Daddy Cool" Booth, the sequencing of these tracks has proved invaluable in this series. Sound quality is routinely excellent. Some of the more relatively obscure titles here include Todd Rhodes' "Pot Likker," T.J. Fowler's "T.J. Boogie," and Sugar Chile Robinson's "Numbers Boogie." More well-known performers including John Lee Hooker (yes, the original "Boogie Chillun'" is here), Dinah Washington ("Baby Get Lost"), Bull Moose Jackson ("Why Don't You Haul Off and Love Me"), Roy Brown ("Rockin' at Midnight") and T-Bone Walker ("T-Bone Shuffle") are here, among over a dozen others. Colin Escott's detailed liner notes -- a set for each cut -- are in his usual form, authoritative and engaging, and the photographs in this handsome digipack are just beautiful.
