Description

Roots on LP

Somehow this 1961 Reprise title seems to have escaped the audiophile must-have list. It's a true hidden classic and an incredibly warm recording. The small combo setting really allows these two heavyweights to shine. The mood is laid-back and down-home. Accompanying musicians include trumpeter Gerald Wilson, pianist Ernie Freeman, bassist Ralph Hamilton and drummer Jim Miller. Roots was recorded at the often underrated or forgotten Radio Recorders in Hollywood, California. The studio, built in 1929, was one of the truly great - and great-sounding - studios of it's day with an unbelievable discography of classics to it's name. 200 gram vinyl. Tracks:1. I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water 2. I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town 3. Key to the Highway 4. Did You Ever 5. Confessing' the Blues 6. Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out 7. Your Red Wagon 8. Rain Is Such a Lonesome Sound 9. Cherry Red 10. It's a Low Down Dirty Shame 11. Just a Dream 12. Please, Mr. Webster.
