Shout Sister Shout!

Brita Borg  “Fat Mammy Brown”  Knappup Records  (Sweden)   Right to the LPCL Hall of Frames from LP cover lover Peter in Sweden!  “This is how Sweden was in the year of 1957. Britta Borg was a loved jazz singer with a very deep voice.  I found this 45rpm in a junkstore and paid 50 cents.  I have not seen it before.  Have about 3000 Lp´s many bought just for the cover so my collection is quiet mad.”

Bad move

“Blues Soul”  of Johnny (guitar) Watson  Chess Records (1964)  One of the funkiest guitar players of all time, the legendary, original “gangster of love” here plays piano and sings standards in this jazz trio album that’s not too soulful or bluesy — Witchcraft/I Cried For You/I’ll Remember April/Polka Dots And Moonbeams//Exactly Like You/When Did You Leave Heaven/Reconsider Baby/Misty

An oddball release that doesn’t do credit to his talent (or the great Chess label catalog).   This came out during a lull in his long career – after the great 50’s releases (“Gangster of Love”, “Hot Little Mama”, “Those Lonely, Lonely Nights”) and before his 70’s comeback (“A Real Motha for Ya”, “Ain’t That A Bitch”, “Superman Lover”).
