Pete Johnson - Decca 03292 (1941)

Ever since Sam asked about British Deccas, I have been finding them all over the place.

Here we have a Boogie Woogie disc by Pete of the big three Boogie Woogie pianists of the era...with Al Hall on bass and A.G. Godley on drums.

Recorded in New York on May 8th (Basement Boogie) and 29th (Death Ray Boogie), 1941.

(Although, contrary to the nice shiny finish, there is quite a bit of surface noise)
