Description

All blues definitions are arbitrary at best but 'East Coast Blues' is the vaguest of them all. You can get a handle on Texas blues or Mississippi blues but the eastern seaboard of America, from Florida to New York, is more than 1,300 miles long and encompassed any number of individual styles when the recording industry first took an interest in blues music. After World War II, as the artists gathered here demonstrate, a strong current of aggressively fingerpicked blues continued to crop up in the commercial sphere. This 4CD set concentrates on the recordings of Gabriel Brown, Dan Pickett and Ralph Willis. None of the three protagonists achieved the sort of success or ubiquity that cemented the careers of, say, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee (who accompany Willis on some tracks) but each in his own way established a firm voice and idiosyncratic presence in postwar blues recording.
