Has this ever been released as a cd (or even as an Lp)?   And were they 10" or 12" 78s?

 

They were all released (with alternates) on the Mosaic Select "Boogie Woogie And Blues Piano."

The first sentence says "four 10-inch, 78 rpm records".

Right. I read (too) fast.

I've just had a look at the contents of this box (which I don't own). A great collection! I've been an enthusiast for this music since my teenage years (which doesn't quite take me back to when it was recorded):) and even play a little blues piano myself. Favorite blues pianist: Yancey. Favorite boogie pianist: Meade Lux.

I don't get why Yancey always changes the key at the endings of his songs.  Was that just his signature phrase?

I guess the answer is "yes".

I have it and I like this style a lot. For me it's like the great mother of RnR. And I think I will give it a listen tonight. Last time is too far away. So much that I don't know where it is. But Selects are easy to detect.

A favorite box set to play in the warmer months. Paired with a vodka martini and lemon twist.
