The West Coast of America from San Francisco to Los Angeles was never considered a Blues centre until the war years when 100,000's of Southern Blacks migrated to the coast to work in munitions plants and other war-related industries. From the mid-forties until well into the fifties California was home to scores of record labels and artists equally important and influential as the Blues industries in Memphis or Chicago. This Collection represents the smaller and more obscure California labels that operated between 1948 and 1953 like Ray's, Murray's, Elko, Spire and Globe. Despite this these labels still managed to attract recording artists of the stature of Jimmy McCracklin and Smokey Hogg, two of the biggest west Coast down home blues stars.
