Homesick James meets Cousin Leroy
Downhome Blues From Chicago To New York CD

The worlds of Blues and R&B is filled with dynamic, original and highly collectable artists who made a string of great recordings, but not enough to fill a full length CD.
Other than the amount of recordings Homesick James and Cousin Leroy made, there are no stylistic characteristics between the two artists.
Homesick James, cousin of Elmore James, was an important element in the Chicago blues club scene throughout the 1950s and '60s and Cousin Leroy was a mainstay of the New York Blues scene.
Many of these recordings have rarely been available for the past 40 years and if you're not familiar with their work, you are in for a treat.
Accompanying booklet includes fully detailed liner notes.
