    I agree with the allmusic review impressions:

    The album feels like a solid stream of hippie cowboy music fed by cold Lone Star, lots of pot, and the occasional line. To listen closely is to miss the point. This is an album to be experienced with the senses, entering into the free flow of Walker's good-time world even for the 40 minutes it takes to listen to the album. But that's far better than nothin', ain't it?

    Mezzrow/Bechet Quintet & Septet, Revolutionary Blues, 1985, Storyville CH, SLP-6007

    Swiss made pressing.
    Recorded for King Jazz Records in New York and Chicago, July-December 1945.
    Sidney Bechet on soprano sax. Sammy Price piano. Oran "Lips" Page and Wesley "Sox" Wilson (superb!) vocals.
    Interesting because Sidney Bechet does not play clarinette as usual.
    Listen to bass playing by George "Pops" Foster on track A7 "Funky Butt".

    Mezzrow/Bechet Quintet & Septet, Out Of The Gallion, 1985, Storyville CH, SLP-6004

    Swiss made pressing.
    Listen to these 3 great Blues singers on this one:
    1.) Wesley "Sox" Wilson eschews exaggerated vocal expressiveness in favour of clear and precise diction (cit. notice by Humphrey Lyttleton on inner fold cover). Listen to her on tracks A4 "Evil Gal Blues" and B5 "Groovin' The Minor".
    2.) New Orleans born Pleasant Joe's trademark was a voice full of rough dissonance and frequently punctuated by the gasp, half chuckle and half sob (cit. dito). Listen to him on track B6 "Levee Blues".
    3.) Oran "Hot Lips" Page was a genuine blues singer who expressed his own thoughts without reference to any formal lyric. Listen to his across-the-beat phrasing on track B2 "Blood on the moon"(cit. dito).
