It's All Happening in Houston

In the 1950s, in Houston's Third Ward, there was said to be a tension in the air - not of hostility but of so much happening - an excitement and a freer, more genial attitude than in other cities in the South. Trumpeter Calvin Owens was born and raised in Houston and he knew that the Fifth and Third Wards were 'where all the great clubs was'. His first introduction to music was via Lightnin' Hopkins but he saved his greatest admiration for blues singer Doctor Clayton. A town so full of music was always going to produce some great records - and here are some of the best, from the likes of Willie Littlefield, Joe Houston, Peppermint Harris and Smokey Hogg (to name just a few). Compilation and sleeve notes are by Neil Slaven.
