Rare and unknown R'n'blues original !

The original blues sound of Charles Brown & Amos Milburn is an lp which was lent to me by (again) my friend Claude, and it's a killer for those who love this kind of music.
We're here in pure presence of black Rhythm'n'blues, like what you can expect from great artists like Charles Brown and Amos Milburn back in the 50's. But the case is that I haven't the album no longer in hands (and was it documented ? I can't remember), but I found no informations at all concerning the thing on the net.

The strange fact is that there is a lot of organ, and an orchestra. It's written : "with Jackie Shane, Bob Marshall and the Crystals", so I presume it's a just a tribute to Misters Brown and Milburn...? But anyway, it's a great album, and I'd like to share it with amateurs.
ps : The jpg of the cover is very poor, sorry, caus I made a bad scan at the time, but as soon as I put again my hands on the copy, I do the job again, better this time.

* If you know more about this strange album, don't hesitate to leave a comment, please.

Here we go with what I consider as the best selections :

Educated fool

Ain't no big thing

A big bite of the blues

Your blog is so cool Paisley. You know I have (had ?) some spanish friends too, these days. I friended with Doctor Explosion (I went to Gijon), Flashback Five (excellent), Stupid Baboons, Los Imposibles, Loos Flechazos... and made some of them tour too in my town back in 1996/97. Like Benny of Larsen, I love the spanish beat sound.
Cheers ! (I put your adress in links)
