Big Maceo - Worried Life Blues (CD)
Release Date: 11/08/11
14 of Big Maceo Merriweather's classic recordings. Archetypical Chicago blues, mostly accompanied by the equally famous guitarist Tampa Red. The tragically short life of this hugely influential Blues pianist produced a limited volume of work under his own name which continues on Vol 2 (FABCD172) . He was also a prolific session performer and enjoyed huge success in 1941 with his original hit version of 'Worried Life Blues', which became a blues standard almost overnight. Tracks include 'Worried Life Blues', 'Texas Blues', 'Anytime For You', 'I Got The Blues' and 'So Long Baby'.
