Beschreibung

Songs über das Eine aus den Jahren 1926-1940. In der Reihe "Flashbacks" präsentiert das Münchner Label "Trikont" zusammen mit dem Verleger und Autor Werner Pieper auf sechs thematisch geordneten CDs Kostbarkeiten und Merkwürdigkeiten aus vier Jahrzehnten US-amerikanischer Jazz-, Blues- und Unterhaltungsmusik. Aus einem unüberschaubaren Fundus von Aufnahmen wurden 150 Highlights ausgewählt und neu zusammengestellt. Musik und Informationen wurden in London, New York und New Orleans gesammelt, verschüttete Wurzeln, unbekannte Preziosen, bisher ungehörte Klangschätze werden hier, zum größten Teil erstmals in Deutschland zu Gehör gebracht. "Hot & Sexy - Copulation Blues" aus den Jahren 1926-1940 vereinigt Songs übers, naja, Ficken? U.a. mit Mary Dixon, Ethel Waters, Clarence Williams, Blind Boy Fuller, Mae West, Art Fowler.

Rezension

There have been numerous collections that boast the title "Copulation Blues" or "Copulatin' Blues," but none of them holds a torch to this Trikont compilation that features 25 bawdy tales of well, you know, doin' it. If you slap this slab on the stack at a bash, things will get moist and steamy very quickly. The dancers will be grinding a little more slowly, the corners will fill up nice and cozy, and the bushes outside will be crawling with anxious, agitated lovers. The platter opens with Alberta Hunter's lament for sex by telling her suitor that it doesn't matter if she's black or white because in the dark you can't tell anyway. It's all a slippery slope from there, to say the least. But aside from the topical concerns of the disc, it's the quality of the tracks that sets it apart, from the better-known jams of the sort (Louise Bogan's "Shave 'Em Dry," Clarence Williams' "Organ Grinder Blues," Victoria Spivey's "Black Snake Blues," Mae West's "A Guy What Takes His Time," etc.). But there are other lesser-known blues, R&B, and pop classics as well that are sparkling in their spirited excellence, such as Buddy Burton and Irene Sanders' "Electric Man," Bea Foote's "Try and Get It," Art Fowler's "No Wonder She's a Blushing Bride," and Halfpint Jaxon with Tampa Red doing "My Daddy Rocks Me (With One Steady Roll)." And this is just to list a few. There's over an hour of sweltering hokum blues and risqué rhythms on this set guaranteed to make the most serious person on earth laugh and the most amorous person on earth blush. What could you ask for in a "roots" music collection? Take a cold shower -- or don't -- after spinning this wondrous blast form the past. Now these folks know what the word "raunchy" meant: Eminem, Nelly, Kid Rock, Missy Elliot, please take note. ~ Thom Jurek
