Description by OLDIES.com:

The King complex of labels was a wealth of great R&B recordings of all kinds. In this second volume drawn from the tape vaults, there are hits and records that should have been hits by famous and obscure artists alike.


Product Description:

Contains 25 tracks.
Liner Note Author: Victor Pearlin.
The Very Best of King/Federal/Deluxe, Vol. 2 collects 25 tracks from the vaults of those labels, highlighting jump blues, electric blues, R&B, and doo wop. Recorded in the late '40s to mid-'50s, this package features hit performances from Little Willie John, Hank Ballard & the Midnighters, Wynonie Harris, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Roy Brown, and Billy Ward & the Dominoes, alongside rarities by Todd Rhodes, Dorothy Ellis, and the Valtones. For the most part the sound quality is decent, but a few of the tracks ("Blues for the Red Boy," "I Want a Bowlegged Woman," "Moaning Blues") are particularly muddy, especially for a full-price CD compilation. ~ Al Campbell

The Very Best of King/Federal/Deluxe, Volume 2 Music Lover: from BRONX, NY US -- August, 27, 2017

For $1.98, in this classic cd, you get the pioneers of Rhythm and Blues! Artists like Little Willie John, The 5 Keys, Hank Ballard and The Midnighters, The Dominoes, Johnny Guitar Watson and so much more! There are even songs in this set that I have never heard of and still captures the ear with sweet music! As I was listening to this cd, my mind wandered as to thinking if this music can hold up today! The answer is better than ever!
