Considered a disposable fad - and thus unworthy of expensive recording resources - by the concert promoters and radio executives of the day, live R&B and Jump Blues, was rarely captured for posterity and only then, usually because of its accidental inclusion in a larger program of 'more laudable music' such as jazz. This makes the two dozen rarities on "Wellcome Back To Town" all the more welcome - whether taken from a live concert performance or a radio transcription, there is something magical and exciting about these little slices of musical history. Fasten your safety belts!
