Play It Like You Did Back to George Street: An Anthology of Cincinnati Blues 1924-1936 was issued as a limited edition double LP with a download card. The carefully curated compilation features blues artists such as Papa Tadpole, Cincinnati Jug Band, Sam Jones (Stovepipe No. 1), King David Jug Band, Kid Cole, Bob Coleman and more, focusing on musicians that lived in and made their livings playing music in Cincinnati in the 1920's and 30's. The grooves are filled with topical songs that chart a long-gone Cincinnati - tracks such as "I'm Going to Cincinnati", "George Street Stomp", "Court Street Blues", "Sixth Street Moan", "Clair and Pearley Blues", "Cincinnati Underworld Woman" and an ode to our neighbor across the Ohio - "Newport Blues". Liner notes (all 4500 words of 'em) are written by Steve Tracy, and cover artwork is provided by underground comic great Justin Green! (Released 2012)
