    JSP's Shake That Thing: East Coast Blues compiles four CD's of performances by country blues pickers Gabriel Brown, Dan Pickett, and Ralph Willis. It's hard to go wrong with these 105 obscure recordings cut between 1935 and 1953. The tracks have been remastered, making the majority of this material sound great. Unlike other packages of this type, the liner notes are informative; listing personnel, dates, and concise history without going on ad nauseam. As an extra bonus this is a budget-priced set making it highly recommended, for both the collector and the blues novice. ~ Al Campbell

  • Critic Reviews
    Living Blues (p.80) - "This set of over 100 titles illustrates how complex the East Coast style is....The style went on to flourish after a strong start from originators such as Fuller and Davis."
