Various: Don't Freeze On Me - Independent Womens Blues (CD)

(El Cerrito) 25 tracks
 -
The Bay Area blues scene of the late 50's and early 60's was a smoldering cauldron of independent women blues singers. From Big Mama Thornton to Sugar Pie De Santo, the San Francisco Bay had an abundance of fine, no nonsense singers. This compilation is the first to explore the many and varied sounds of independent Blues women from the Bay Area and beyond.

We open the cd with some fine early 60's recordings produced by Johnny Heartsman For Al King's FLAG label. Ella Thomas was remembered by Heartsman as a fine singer and stylist who always put on a great show. Her recordings are some of the brightest and most convincing records of the era. Propelled by Heartsman's ['Ting guitar and crisp horn charts, "Understanding" and "Introducing A Fool" are some of the best examples of early 60's R&B ever waxed, while her answer to Little Johnny Taylor's big hit "Part Time Love" shows the depth of her involvment in a song.

Olive Brown was from Detroit and her unreleased rocker "Roll Like A Big Wheel" begs the question... Why wasn't it ever issued? The rollicking piano back up runs this demo like a locomotive with Olive bringing a full a head of steam to the uninhibited vocal. Another fine southern recording is Blanche Thomas and Her Boys from New Orleans. "You Ain't So Such A Much" has a salty swagger from Thomas that is almost upstaged by the incendiary guitar break from either Ernest McLean or Edgar Blanchard. The Que Martin Band featured many fine vocalists during their long stay in Oakland in the 1950's including Harry "Little" Caesar and Dell Graham whose anti-climactic "Work With It" leaves little to the imagination.

Big Mama Thornton's career has been written about many times and we acknowledge her career with some of the small label gems she recorded in the 1960's. It's rumored that only two performers ever stood up to record mogul/gangster Don Robey... Gatemouth Brown & Big Mama Thornton. Marie Adams was one of the famous "Three Tons Of Joy" singers with the Johnny Otis Revue for many years and this Ray Shanklin production of "Old Feeling" shows her vocals off in a new and soulful light. Sugar Pie De Santo, more than any other Bay Area singer, epitomizes the no nonsense vocal style in evidence on this cd. Her recordings for a myriad of small Bay Area labels runs the gamut from sprightly "teen" sounding pop efforts with Pee Wee Parham to low down gut bucket blues.

 "Strange Feeling" from the early 60's features the band of Nat Hendrix (Kendrick) who was James Brown's drummer in the early 60's. Johnny Headsman recalled vocalist "Delilah" as a prostitute from San Diego who had found her way to the Bay Area in the 1960's. Recording credits suggest a last name of Gregg, and her records are consistently hard core and to the point. Betty James' fine double sider from 1961 is one of the finest female waxings of the era with one of the toughest small combos in support. It's been suggested that Tarheel Slim is the guitarist on this session.
