This 2 CD special offer includes the iconic Blues Book and Beyond (LACD296) and one of LAKE'S all-time best selling releases That Patterson Girl (LACD244).
LACD296Before her retirement in 1966 Ottilie Patterson had only one Jazz LP devoted to her, 'CHRIS BARBER'S BLUES BOOK'. This release sees that original album of classic blues, R'n'B material and a couple of her own compositions, enhanced with some previously unreleased tracks, four tracks from the 'OTTILIE SWINGS THE IRISH' EP and three tracks which only had limited release in the past. Ottilie's previous LAKE release, LACD244 in one of LAKE's all time best selling albums.
LACD244 This CD contains 23 tracks in all, including 11 previously unreleased songs or versions of songs. When Ottilie Patterson appeared at the Royal Festival Hall in 1955 with Chris Barber's Jazz Band George Melly described her as Bessie Smith reincarnated. For the next 20 years she remained with the Barber band before retiring through ill health. In that time she became Britain's best loved Trad Jazz singer - and still held in great affection today! This CD includes 11 tracks never previously released and three songs never recorded by Ottilie anywhere else.
