(No, we're not sure why they spelt it wrong either?!)
Considered a disposable fad - and thus unworthy of expensive recording resources - by the concert promoters and radio executives of the day, live R&B, and its immediate predecessor jump blues, was only occasionally captured for posterity and only then, usually, because of its accidental inclusion in a larger program of "more laudable music" such as jazz. Which makes the enclosed two dozen rarities all the more welcome; whether taken from a live concert performance or a radio transcription, there is something magical and exciting about these little slices of musical time-travel. Fasten your safety belts!
