Frit's Tape Collection 19 & 20



More singles from the collection of Frits.
I've got to say I've never seen so many Willie Cobbs singles in one place.

Thanks again for all the great vinyl rips here. I also really enjoy the Frits collections as well.

All those Willie Cobbs 45 are worth listening. Thanks Xyros and Frits to unearth these kind of blues gems !

Franck Goldwasser said...

Is that the original version of "You Don't Love Me", or did he record more than one version?

Xyros said...

Good question Franck. I only have the old "Blues Records 1943-66" but it gives 4 releases on different labels from 1961 session. Also there is a release on Ruler records, see Youtube. The release on Chimneyville is not listed in the old Blues Records.
Maybe someone with the new book can help out.

The Willie Cobbs disco is a little messy. He recorded several times his only hit "You don't love me": The original comes fom a Memphis, late 1960 session, first issued on Mojo 2168, then reissued on HOB 231, Vee Jay 411, Bootheel 182 a,d Ruler 900. The now famous riff was created by Billy Lee Riley who produced the session. Thanks to Frits for sharing those not so easy to find tracks

Could add some more singles:
Minaret 147; Shield 3501; Whirl-A-Way 1065; Wilco Rec. 103; Wilco Rec. 104.
I suppose though that some have been issued before.

Nice to hear these tasty early sides by Albert Collins, with the strong Tex-Mex flavor and Albert's unique stinging guitar lines. Infinitely superior blues to what he ended up doing in the later years of his career - Alligator et al.

Xyros said...

@HM, that would be greatly appreciated if you could mail me a link for the 45's

I may be wrong but after several listenings and comparing with my own records, I feel that most of the tracks, particularly on 19, are played at a much lower speed than it was intended. Could Frits check this out with his turntable?
