Classic Blues Vol. 2

Published October 02, 2006.VariousClassic Blues Vol. 2 (Smithsonian Folkways)The variety should dazzle any open set of ears. Even blues aficionados may discover a new fave. Most tracks were recorded in the ’40s and ’50s, a couple of exceptions being Lucinda Will-iams and the Chambers Bro- thers before they got famous. Roscoe Holcomb bellows like a banshee about a graveyard, Roosevelt Sykes injects elements of silent film into cas- cading piano as he contemplates his .44. Nobody’s very happy, but happiness feels overrated in the shadow of such magnificent misery.—Doug Taylor
