GRAY, Blind Arvella: The Singing Drifter

(1972 'Birch Records') (54:35/15) Neuauflage einer seltenen, in einer Auflage von lediglich 300 Stück produzierten LP, die David A. Wylie für sein Country-Label aufnahm. Gray war einer der populärsten Chicagoer Strassenmusiker. Er spielte auf der Maxwell Street und freitags spielte er vor Bob Koesters Laden, dem Jazz Record Mart. Viele kannten ihn; doch es war eher ungewöhnlich, dass ein Straßenmusiker eine Platte aufnahm. Seine Musik klingt rauh und wild; seine Songs sind teils überlang - so wie er sie auf der Strasse spielte. Die Neuauflage kommt mit vier unveröffentlichten Bonusstücken / Re-issue of a hard-to-find collector's item, an LP record by Chicago street musician Arvella Gray (only 300 copies were pressed). He was a familiar figure in the streets of Chicago, until his death in 1980. Known for his expressive and wild style, playing slide on his dobro, and his raw vocals this re-issue shows him at his best. Arvella played Maxwell Street, and in front of the famous Jazz Record Mart (run by Delmark president Bob Koester), and many other places. Comes with four previously unissued sides.
