Back In Town!

1962 on Pacific Jazz # PJ-54 / ST-54 (LP)

on Fontana # 688-138 [U.K.] (LP): Folk Blues U.S.A. / Bee's Back In Town!

This is an unusual album which teams folk-blues singer/guitarist Bumble Bee Slim (Amos Easton) with several Pacific Jazz artists, including Les McCann, Richard "Groove" Holmes, Curtis Amy, Lou Blackburn, Ron Jefferson, Leroy Vinnegar, and Joe Pass. The original U.S. release of this LP is extremely rare. Our information is based on the U.K. release, which is believed to be identical. Les McCann appears on three (of 10) tracks.
