NAKED 001 LP 


This beautiful piece of vinyl is a perfect guide to the untold story of the blues in Oakland. While the history of the blues is more associated with Mississippi, Chicago, Texas, and Louisiana than the West Coast, it's a matter of facts that Oakland has always been a thriving center for African American culture and this album represents a great exploration of its deep relationship with the blues. The whole first side consists of eight tracks of pure West Coast jump blues by the legendary pianist and singer JIMMY MCCRAKLIN, while the second side is shared between one-man band wizard JUKE BOY BONNER and the electric blues of JOHNNY FULLER and JIMMY WILSON & THE BLUES BASTERS. All sessions come from the 1950s archives of Bob Geddins' Irma Records, the legendary record label that became the house for the East Bay Blues sound.
