BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 1/12/20
SPOTLIGHT ON THE J-V-B LABEL

This week on BBS we’ll feature records on the J-V-B Label. The label was based in Detroit and was owned and operated by record store owner/record producer Joe Von Battle. From shortly after WWII until the mid 1960s Joe’s label gave voice to performers on the Detroit music scene. We’ll spend Hour #4 sampling sides from his label’s catalog which seemed to focus on the city’s Blues and Gospel scene. We’ll hear sides by Eddie Burns, Baby Boy Warren, One-String Sam, The Detroit Count, Calvin Frazier, Washboard Willie, Walter Mitchell, Robert Richards, L.C. Green & Sam Kelly. Also Brother Will Hairston, The Flying Clouds of Detroit and the earliest sides by Aretha Franklin. It’s great music from the Motor City as we profile

The J-V-B Label – Only on BBS!
