Ram John Holder - Black London Blues

Recently my niece Jennifer requested the titles of some good quality Jazz albums and my searching prompted me to break out and dust off one of my favorite blues records. "Black London Blues" was an LP recorded by the acclaimed British stage, screen, and TV actor Ram John Holder in 1969. The cover is a moribund B&W photo of a gussied-up Ram in an abject ghetto; no liner notes, no personnel listing. Every cut is titled the "(something) Blues", 'Notting Hill Eviction' which reflected life as he had lived it in the years when, after decades of economic depression, world war and austerity, thousands of people were trapped in slum conditions while prosperity grew around them. The sleeve is in fabulous condition with only the lightest edge scuffing which is great because it is very rare and extremely collectable. As far as I know it has never been released on CD but you can download the complete set from yours truly.
