Price £11.99
Alger “Texas” Alexander, born around 1900, was a blues singer, whose impressive voice and personal way with the blues encouraged many well-known names to accompany him across his career. He performed around the Brazos River area in Texas during the 1920s and made his first records in 1927. Beginning with his classic Levee Camp Moan Blues, this 66-track 3CD set has all the recordings he made at various sessions in New York, Fort Worth and San Antonio between 1927 and 1934 and which were released on the Okeh and Vocalion labels, plus two titles he made in 1951 after a career break and which were released on the Freedom label, not long before his death in 1954.

Just Jazz October 2019 – Pete Lay
“A comprehensive overview of Alger 'Texas' Alexander… a fine showcase for a distinctive bluesman with a deep impressive voice, who has maybe not had the attention he deserves.”
