Album Review

As part of the U.K. release of Martin Scorsese's miniseries The Blues, the British reissue label Snapper released a number of single-disc compilations of noted blues artists. Most of them are redundant, but the 25-track Lowell Fulson anthology Trying to Find My Baby is far better than many. Largely forgotten to most casual blues fans, except perhaps for those who remembered that Elvis Presley's brilliant "Reconsider Baby" was a cover of a 1954 Fulson single, Lowell Fulson is hard for neophytes to get a handle on at first. Born in Oklahoma, heavily influenced by acoustic Texas blues singers like Blind Lemon Jefferson and Texas Alexander (although Fulson himself played electric almost exclusively), based in Los Angeles, and spending most of his career recording for Chicago's Chess Records, he doesn't fit into the neat geographic box so beloved by blues purists. Furthermore, he recorded in so many different styles for so many different labels that most of the many compilations available focus only on one period of his career at a time. At 25 tracks covering a career that lasted nearly half a century, Trying to Find My Baby is necessarily skimpy, but it's one of the few genuinely comprehensive overviews of Fulson's many musical changes. Shockingly, however, it doesn't include Fulson's best-known song and biggest hit, the aforementioned and, admittedly, endlessly anthologized "Reconsider Baby," so it's not really acceptable for the true neophyte. However, it's an excellent second step for those wanting a better grasp of Fulson's career.

Biography

Born: 31 March 1921 in Tulsa, OK

Genre: Blues

Years Active: '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s

Lowell Fulson recorded every shade of blues imaginable. Polished urban blues, rustic two-guitar duets with his younger brother Martin, funk-tinged grooves that pierced the mid-'60s charts, even an unwise cover of the Beatles' "Why Don't We Do It in the Road!" Clearly, the veteran guitarist, who was active for more than half-a-century, wasn't afraid to experiment. Perhaps that's...
