They Say All Music Guide

Earwig was founded in 1979 by Michael Robert Frank, and it quickly become one of the top blues labels, recording artists based on the quality of their music rather than on sales potential. To celebrate Earwig’s 16th anniversary, this 18-song collection of music from the label’s catalog was put out in 1995. There is impressive variety on the single CD, with the settings ranging from Little Brother Montgomery’s solo piano to rockish blues groups and everything in between. The selections were well chosen, and although sticking to the blues (no Motown, R&B, or soul music here), the disc shows the wide variety of music that appeared in the 1980s and ’90s in the blues world. Overall, this CD gives one an excellent overview of some of the treasures in the Earwig catalog. – Scott Yanow
