  • Credits

    Performers include: John Oscar, Eddie Miller, George Noble.
    Recorded between 1929 and 1936.
    All of the music recorded under the names of singer John Oscar and vocalist-pianists Eddie Miller and George Noble are reissued on this enjoyable blues-oriented CD. Oscar (who is accompanied by either an unknown pianist or Miller, proves to be a fine singer on his six selections from 1929-34 although virtually nothing is known about him; "Mama Don't Allow No Easy Riders Here" is a highlight. Eddie Miller (no relation to the tenor-saxophonist of the same name) is heard on eight solo performances (including three versions of "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water") and two duets (under the name of Eddie Morgan) with guitarist Big Bill Broonzy; two songs have vocals by Billie McKenzie. George Noble, who is heard solo on eight songs from 1935, has no real connection with Oscar or Miller but does a fine job on "New Milk Cow Blues" "If You Lose Your Good Gal, Don't Mess With Mine" and "T.B. Blues." As with most of the hundreds of Document releases, this set is a delight for serious blues collectors. ~ Scott Yanow
