Scrapper Blackwell and Leroy Carr are one of those blues duos you might not hear that much about unless you are steeped in early blues. But they're a great team and worth knowing about! This is an excellent compilation of early '30s sides from them. The transfers definitely show their wear at places, but it's not all that bad, and these have been carefully mastered to bring out the best sound from them. The best part of these sides is that there is a strong amount of variety of styles. Not just your usual blues, but a good mix of urban and rural styles. And quite a few memorable cuts, including "Papa Wants a Cookie", "Gettin' All Wet", and the excellent "Memphis Town".
