In the years 1978 to 1981, Robert Crotty would show up on
Loren Connors' doorstep in New Haven, Connecticut with
his tiny, almost toy guitar. The two would then spend hours
playing acoustic blues, the likes of which was absolutely staggering
in its truthfulness.
Robert Crotty with Me: Loren's Collection (1979-1987) is the
first anthology of the late bluesman's work, as selected by
Connors, his former playing partner and avant blues master.
These are the unheard tapes of Crotty and Connors communing
with the spirits of Delta and County Blues through
their own revisions of standards and tingle-inducing improvisations.
These also some of the Connors' earliest available
recordings showing the development of his iconoclast guitar
style and vocal moan.
Crotty was a New Haven lifer and linchpin of the region's
blues scene yet, he never achieved much recognition outside
local bars and house parties - until now.
The album features never before heard recordings, unseen
photos, liner notes by Connors and Crotty's brother plus a
bonus CD: the first-time reissue of Crotty's ultra rare sole LP
Robert Crotty Blues and 7-inch -- both released on Connors'
private St. Joan imprint in the late 1980s.
