I was going to post some Jay-Dee songs today, but I didn’t know if that would go over well. If you are interested in the late-beatmaker the Detroit Free Press has a great article about his life and his tragic death here.

Dust-To-Digital are one of the best reissue groups around right now. After their success of Goodbye Babylon, they release a solid if not overly impressive Christmas album. Their latest box set is a collection of Fonotone Records releases, which has me pretty confused. Fontone Records was founded by Joe Bussard and some of his friends doing old-timey music and release it all on 78s. A lot of the material is tongue-in-cheek, recording almost every song under a different name like Jolly Joe’s Jug Band. The music is confusing because it’s really solid – all the members are talented and for the most avoid embarrassing attempts at “blues voices” but they never really break out of the “oh we are doing old-timey songs” there’s nothing new and fresh about their interpretations, just solid music.
