Hot Weather Blues

A 2 track classic r&b single (5m 34s) — released April 12th 2010 on Jukebox Jam Series
In conjunction with London's Jukebox Jam club night Jazzman bring you regular doses of the wildest, rawest original Rhythm and Blues of the '50s and early '60s on DJ friendly collectable 45rpm format. Linked by a sequential catalogue numbering system, each release will also boast a unique label design and title, making them unlike any other reissue on the market. A whole raft of top notch Jump Blues was issued on the RCA Victor label in the first half of the '50s but it seemed that the company wasn't fully sure of how to push the huge amount of vibrant R&B talent they had amassed on their roster. Even though RCA was a leading major, artists such as Mr Sad Head, who issued 4 high quality singles on the label, are now amongst the more mysterious and obscure names in vintage R&B. We've presented the pick of Mr Sad Head's releases right here in this two sider 45. The flip, "Sad Head Blues", is a straight ahead West Coast Jiver with the classic big city sound. However, "Hot Weather Blues" is the BIG tune so it's featured as the A side on our limited run reissue. Alternating between a mambo-inflected minor key riff and a regular jiving rhythm, "Hot Weather Blues" is the kind of unique and quirky sound we actively seek out at the Jukebox Jam club night. The song was also recently played by none other than Bob Dylan on his radio show, so it seems we're not the only Sad Head admirers..! As usual it's a limited run, strictly 500 copies pressed for the world!!
