Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Capitol recently deleted their Charles Brown "best-of," so it's nice to see the classic Aladdin material of this R&B balladeer available again! Includes all 11 of his Top Ten hits- Trouble Blues; Black Night; Get Yourself Another Fool; Long Time; In the Evening When the Sun Goes Down; Homesick Blues; My Baby's Gone; I'll Always Be in Love with You; Seven Long Days , and Hard Times -plus the holiday classic, Merry Christmas, Baby . 20 tracks!
This mellow-toned singer and pianist came to prominence in the mid-'40s as part of Johnny Moore's Three Blazers. Moore's brother Oscar was a member of Nat "King" Cole's trio, a group that greatly influenced the direction of the Blazers. With Moore's fluid guitar and Brown's mellifluous voice, the Blazers pioneered the refined, jazz-influenced West Coast school of blues. Nineteen forty-five's "Driftin Blues" brought the trio national attention, but after recording a handful of tunes under his own name (with the Blazers still behind him), Brown broke away for good and rolled up a series of R&B hits for Aladdin, ending with the 1956 classic "Merry Christmas, Baby." With a deft piano touch and a rich, sultry vocal approach, Brown brought blues to the lounge. --Marc Greilsamer
