Leon Thomas Blues Band - Leon Thomas Blues Band (1988) Retail CD
Leon Thomas' next incarnation was a total departure, for he re-invented himself as a straight-ahead, no-crap blues singer in the mold of Big Joe Turner! He started out on the right track by putting together a tight, smart blues ensemble — with Houston Person on tenor, Babe Clark on baritone, Ernie Hayes on piano, Melvin Sparks and Hugh McCracken on guitar, and the incomparable Bernard Purdie driving it along on drums. But then, mysteriously, Leon didn't follow all the way through, for he sings on only three tracks here, one a duet with the competent blues singer Donald Smith (two othersmore… are instrumentals, and three more are solos for Smith). Thomas does a whale of a job on his two Big Joe solo numbers, "Shake, Rattle and Roll" and "Flip, Flop and Fly" — his vocals are full of authentic character with nary a yodel to be heard. But such short weight on an already brief (34 minutes) CD rule this album out for all but dedicated Leon Thomas nuts.
