    Groovin' The Blues CD

    Watching the success of indie labels like Atlantic, Chess, Specialty, Imperial and others, in 1954 industry giant RCA decided to re-enter the Rhythm & Blues field with the Groove label.
    The experiment ended in 1957 after notching up just one major hit, Mickey & Sylvia's Love Is Strange.
    Lack of hits didn't mean lack of great music.
    Groove Records drew on a wide range of artists from top-drawer vocal groups like the Du Droppers and blues guitar star Roy Gaines, and New Orleans barrelhouse pianist Champion Jack Dupree.
    The bands were always top-notch, including session genius Mickey Baker as well as Paul Williams and Buddy Lucas.
    These excellent recordings are drawn from the masters, restored to pristine sound.
    The accompanying booklet includes detailed liner notes and rare unpublished photos.
