Blues and barbecue make perfect companions, both brimming with down-home flavor. Barbecue Any Old Time presents 24 tracks of vintage blues that celebrate the joys of eating meat, with plenty of sly nods to other worldly pleasures. The anthology includes country blues, big-city blues, washboard bands, string bands, vaudeville blues, and a dash of red hot jazz, originally recorded between 1927-1942.

    Various Artists
    “BARBECUE ANY OLD TIME – BLUES FROM THE PIT: 1927-1942″
    (Old Hat, 2011)
    ————————————————————————
    You gotta love it. Two dozen vintage blues, boogie and jazz songs about yummy, greasy barbecue, with plenty of thinly-veiled sexual metaphors about “good meat” getting stolen, sold, or given away to “some other guy.” A lot of the songs also express a genuine love of barbecue itself — either way, there’s are really fun songs. Included are some of the best blues singers of the 1920s and ’30s, folks like Lucille Bogan, Bo Carter, Brownie McGhee, Memphis Minnie, Tiny Parnham, Georgia White — along with a bunch of more obscure artists who throw themselves into the music with equal delight. Among my favorites are Savannah Churchill’s “Fat Meat Is Good Meat,” singing the praises of those with a little bounce on their bones, and Bogus Ben Covington’s “I Heard The Voice Of A Pork Chop,” a kooky tune where he goes to great length to explain why chicken isn’t ideal for barbecue, but pig meat is. A great collection… aside from the novelty value, these are also great old-fashioned blues songs, with catchy melodies and great musicianship. A very fun record with the usual high quality audio and scholarship as other Old Hat releases… Highly recommended! (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Guide To Country Music)

    A Real Smoker!, December 26, 2011
    This review is from: Barbecue Any Old Time: Blues From The Pit 1927-1942 (Audio CD)

    If you’re pulling out the smoker for authentic BBQ, then you’ll want this album for the soundtrack. The Amazon Editorial Review pretty much nails this gem. As a collector with quite a few old blues from this era, I didn’t have most of these tracks in my collection except for a couple from the more well known artists like Barbecue Bob, Memphis Mini, Blind Boy Fuller, Brownie etc, but more than 1/2 the tracks were from artists new to me or tracks I had not heard. Most people have not heard any of these fun songs. The included booklet is great with period pictures of which only a couple have seen much circulation in the past. This was a wonderful gift, but I would have bought it in a second if I had saw it first. Get Your Barbecue Here!

    I have every release from Old Hat Records and each one is a gem. This is every bit as nice as previous volumes, and essential for any roots music lover, historian, institution or musician.
