Robert McCoy – Bye Bye Baby
Delmark DE 759 (2002)
Alabama barrelhouse blues pianist Robert McCoy (born in Aliceville in 1908) had two rare LPs in the early ’60s on the Vulcan label. Delmark has acquired the masters and is now re-issuing the material on CD for the first time with many previously unissued tracks. These were his first recordings as leader, although he recorded in the ’30s accompanying Guitar Slim, “Jaybird” Coleman and Peanut The Kidnapper. “Stomping piano solos and blues vocals played with … vitality and authority. McCoy sets a happy and boozey pre-depression mood that is fun to share with him.” – San Francisco Examiner. Bye Bye Baby contains more than an hour of pure blues piano delight!
