In the 1940s and 50s, Detroit boasted a vibrant Blues and Jazz scene, which was largely catered for by a handful of independent record labels.

This compilation features two of Detroit's perhaps lesser-known lights, who nonetheless recorded excellent bodies of work.

Singer/guitarist ROBERT HENRY 'BABY BOY' WARREN arrived in Detroit in 1944 from Louisiana, via Memphis, and became a popular club performer without ever giving up his day job.

Warren's down-home styled sides appeared on labels like Staff, Sampson, Blue Lake, Drummond and producer Joe Von Battle's J-V-B.

Singer/guitarist L.C. GREEN, originally from Mississippi, was one of Detroit's more obscure artists, despite playing in a style similar to that of Detroit's Main Man, John Lee Hooker.

Green's sides were also recorded by Joe Von Battle, several of which were licensed to Dot Records for national distribution.
