The Second World War and its immediate wake meant an exodus to California of folks from all over the country looking for work in the powerful war industries -- and a place in the sunshiny California American Dream. Some of these immigrants were professional and semi-professional musicians, and they helped fuel California's newly emerging recording industry. But sunshine can give you the blues on occasion, apparently, and this two-disc, 53-track set from JSP Records collects rare and priceless examples of early West Coast blues cut between 1947 and 1953. Selected and annotated by Neil Slaven, it makes for a fascinating glimpse at a specific time, place, and sound. ~ Steve Leggett
