Reacting to the positive reception of Koko Mojo’s rhythm and blues series of compilation albums, the final instalment arrives with a thirty-track album consisting of many of the highlights from the series of CDs. With a difficult task filtering through many hours of delightful traditional blues and rhythm and blues found on this set of albums, the final list of tracks making up ‘A Journey To The Land Of Blues And Rhythm’ features a track from each album and referenced on the back cover. From this picking list of rhythm and blues it’s such delights as Lucky Millinder’s ‘Who Said Shorty Wasn’t Coming Back’, and powerhouse vocals of Little Miss Jessie with ‘My Baby Has Gone’ to see why this compilation series was in such great demand. From there it’s the likes of opening track ‘You Drink Too Much Booze’ by Jimmy Raney & Slim Slaughter with jazz influencing its rhythm, to confident turn in more ways than one from Marty Lewis and song ‘Satisfied With My Lovin’’. It is also the anecdotes that inform much of these songs in addition to the compelling music, not forgetting some of the monikers of the artists featured and titles of a few of the songs with oddity that is the track ‘Psycho’ by Bobby Hendricks winning hands down. Those who are new to the Koko Mojo experience and missed the majority of these compilation albums would be wise to start with ‘Koko Showcase: A Journey To The Land Of Blues And Rhythm’ because during its thirty tracks provides a wide dosage of rhythm and blues with enough evidence to tempt any listener to explore the rest of this series. A limited-edition release to mark this excellent series in style is ‘Koko Showcase: A Journey To The Land Of Blues And Rhythm’.
