A straight reissue on CD of Krazy Kat's 1988 LP of the same title, which in turn was drawn from singles originally recorded and released in the 1950s by Ivin Ballen's Gotham Records, this interesting set is part country blues and part an urban, uptown representation of it. Gotham specialized in R&B, and much of what is here has that feel, but it is still unmistakably the blues. Among the highlights are Doug Quattlebaum's smooth and flowing "Foolin' Me" and the jaunty, barrelhouse "Goin' to Chattanooga" by Ralph Willis. ~ Steve Leggett
