Seventy years is a long time. Seventy years before the late Bob Koester founded Delmar (later Delmark) Records while a college student in St. Louis, Buffalo Bill’s travelling Wild West Show debuted, Chester A. Arthur was president, Thomas Edison brought electric light to Roselle, NJ for the first time, and “Black Bart” was in the news for another stagecoach robbery. When Koester released his first record in 1953, many of the now-iconic figures in blues and jazz were still every day working musicians, Ike was in the White House, and the U.S. was fighting in Korea. Now seventy years on, Delmark is the oldest independent jazz and blues record label in the world, boasting a catalog bulging with over twelve thousand recordings by a virtual who’s who of jazz and blues. Here are some of the finest tracks from the Delmark blues music vaults contained in the new release. 1) Junior Wells w/ Buddy Guy – Snatch It Back And Hold It 2) Magic Sam – All Of Your Love 3) Otis Rush – All Your Love (I Miss Loving) 4) Jimmy Dawkins w/ Otis Rush & BB Odom – All For Business 5) Dinah Washington – Blues For A Day 6) T-Bone Walker – I Want A Little Girl 7) Big Time Sarah – Long Tall Daddy 8) Little Walter w/ Muddy Waters – I Just Keep Loving Her 9) Memphis Slim & Matt Guitar Murphy – Memphis Slim U.S.A. 10) Jimmy Johnson – Ashes In My Ashtray
