Foxy R&B: Richard Stamz Chicago Blues / Various [Import][CD]
Richard Stamz was a colorful Chicago R&B and soul DJ who operated throughout the '50s and '60s. He took over the Cobra/Artistic/Abco studio around 1960; this also included the ownership of the active Paso label which he continued to run alongside his own Foxy operation. Recordings from this period include tracks from Harold Burrage, Lee Williams, Robert & the Rockin' Ravens and many others. US musicologists Richard Shurman and Patrick Roberts, who has written a book on Stamz life, provide fascinating musical and entertaining sociological facts about the recordings and the man. Richard Stamz daughter Phyllis has given the compilers and writers access to the family's memorabilia and the package is well illustrated to provide a taster of Chicago musical life at the start of the '60s.
