Wayne Kahn, owner/operator producer of Right On Rhythm Records, needs to be cloned and have 400 or so more doubles operating in every major city in the U.S. and copying this great achievement. What Kahn has done is highly commendable and a case study in how to document and present the local blues scene in a given area. A native of the blues-rich Washington, D.C. area, Kahn has recorded several of the area's more notable art artists and bands for this disc, and then inside of the accompanying liner note booklet, he's meticulously listed alphabetically every blues-related musician in the area and part of their biography.

It just goes to show what can happen when you scratch the surface of a local music scene; you never know what surprises are in store. While there are your typical bar bands included here, there are also some exceptional talents as well. Big Jesse Yawn is a great vocalist whose personal history goes back to the late 1950s with Robert Ward, Jack McDuff and Albert King. His one track is a real teaser. Hopefully he'll record more. Steve Guyger blows fine harp throughout and the inter-change-able cast of excellent club veterans is evidence of a long history of playing the blues on local stages. Danny Morris is a fine guitarist and Kevin McKendree is tops on Hammond organ. Another big-voiced singer a la Jimmy Witherspoon is Nap Turner and a couple of names from Black Top recordings surface. Big Joe Maher and Alex Schultz, and the legendary saxman Joe Stanley (who was mentor to Danny Gattton and Roy Buchanan) is still blowing up a storm. Hammond B-3 organ seems to be a very popular choice and one can speculate that the early 1960s were big for organ--led combos on the Washington/Baltimore club scene.

This disc is a perfect example of what good can come out of a labor of love, and a good set of ears. Twelve tracks and each and every one has merit Check out Kahn's fantastic live' Roy Carrier recording as well. Two discs on his label, and two winners!
5 bottles for a fine documentary on a rich blues hotbed. - Andy Grigg
