Robert McCoy • Barrel House Blues And Jook Piano

Robert McCoy is an Alabama bluesman singer/barrelhouse pianist born in the small town of Aliceville, AL, in March 31th, 1910 but moved to Birmingham when he was only a baby and ended up spending the rest of his life there. McCoy's first recordings as a leader came in the '30s, a decade that found him working with Jaybird Coleman and Guitar Slim as well as James Sherell, aka Peanut The Kidnapper. He continued to sing and play the piano on the side in the '40s and '50s. It wasn't until the early '60s that the Birmingham resident returned to professional recording. In 1961, McCoy came to the attention of Patrick Cather, an aspiring blues producer who also lived in Birmingham and he wanted to start a label and produce blues records. In 1962, Cather produced McCoy's first full-length LP Barrel House Blues And Jook Piano, which was released on Cather's own Vulcan Records. The following year, Cather produced McCoy's sophomore album, Blues and Boogie Classics, also released on Vulcan. After Blues and Boogie Classics, McCoy didn't record any more albums, he died in Birmingham 12 February of 1978.
