“Piano Red In Concert” by Piano Red - album review

TJR says

Probably somewhere around late 1953 RCA decided that they would make a stab at breaking into the R n B market in a bigger way by launching a new subsidiary label with the hep sounding name “Groove”. The launch was trailed in “Billboard” in early January 1954 and on the 8th February Groove issued its first 45 sides. The first LP was scheduled a couple of years later. It was set to be LG-1001, Piano Red’s “Jump Man Jump”. However, for reasons unknown (probably economic) the album’s proposed 12 tracks were shelved. It was decided that LG-1002 (“Piano Red In Concert”) would be Grooves first LP instead. Somewhat confusingly, LG-1002 turned out to be a hybrid, with 6 live tracks (runtime 20:47) on side 1 (recorded at a concert in Atlanta, Georgia, March 1956) and 8 of the studio tracks (runtime 19:29) from the shelved LG-1001 project making up side 2! Even more confusingly, many online sources seem to be under the impression that both LPs exist in separate form… just as well my inner Columbo enjoys the challenge of unravelling a good mystery…
