Various - Old Friends For The First Time Together

"The music has the unforced feel of (Chicago's) blues of the late 30s and 40s without once sounding anachronistic. The five musicians (playing as a quintet) share the vocal duties, providing striking contrasts...All the material is original in the true sense, not just old blues with reshuffled lyrics and new titles, and the quintet interprets it with real conviction. Horton is featured on four of the eleven numbers." - Manchester, England Evening News  (review for the cd adjusted for the lp)
This has been rereleased on CD some years ago with 6 extra tracks.

You can easily recognize each musician's sound. This doesn't frequently happen.
