Jukebox Jam hit us with another selection of golden oldies this week. I’ve got a couple of stompin’ blues cuts recorded for Houston label Macy’s from local lad Hubert Robinson.
This guy got started hollering for sax-man Curtis Amy in the mid-’40s before briefly stepping on his own with a couple of 78s. Jukebox Jam have picked out the best two cuts from these Macy sessions compiling them on one 7”, replicating the original label art for a complete authentic feel. It’s a labour of love for those Jukebox Jam folk.
The cuts are no-messin, foot stompin’, horns blazing, booze soaked bar blues standards played by a loose but up for it backing band and topped off with Robinson’s impressive vocal outbursts. The beat is tight, the horns are shrill and the band sound like they’re having a lot of fun. You gotta dig these obscure pre-rock’n’roll cuts from long forgotten artists. Reminds you that music wasn’t always high gloss, laptop generated, faceless crap like it is now.
