London Street Blues was originally formed when the core members Rupert Webster, Chris Pressley and Nick Ephgrave met some years ago on a blues course run by Iain Scott at The Guitar Institute, Acton. They started life in 1994 as the original London Blues Band. The onset of a new century triggered the re-launch of the band as London Street Blues and a renewed passion for the blues with their own interpretation.
Basin Street is the street Where the best folks always meet In New Orleans, land of dreams You'll never know how nice it seems, Or just how much it really means. Glad to be, oh yes-sirree Where welcome's free and dear to me Where I can lose, lose my Basin Street Blues. Basin Street, oh Basin Street Is the street, mama New Orleans, land of dreams.

About the blues, I know the blues. They serve you memories on a plate of tears They know your appetite will last for years You can't refuse You join the club and gotta pay your dues. When you hang your hat in heartbreak hall Your win broken dreams must crawl And your gloom will continue to grow Until there's nothing that you don't know. About the blues, about the blues.
About the Blues is an album by Julie London that was released in 1957. The album includes two songs written by Bobby Troup, her husband. Miles Davis recorded a version of one of them, "The Meaning of the Blues". The eighteen-piece band was arranged by Russell Garcia. Julie London - vocals. Willie Smith - alto saxophone. Maynard Ferguson - trumpet. Barney Kessel - guitar. Shelly Manne - drums. Russ Garcia - arranger, conductor.
About the Blues was aimed at the 1950s pop market, but it may just be her best orchestral session. Since downbeat torch songs were London's specialty, the album features an excellent selection of nocturnal but classy blues songs that play to her subtle strengths instead of against them. Likewise, Russ Garcia's clever arrangements bleed jazz touches and short solos over the solitary strings and big-band charts. Like June Christy, London usually included a couple of new songs in with a selection of standards, and her husband, Bobby Troup, wrote two excellent numbers for the album.

About The Blues - 1957. While attending Hollywood Professional High School in 1944, I hardly thought the teen-age doll sitting at my left in English class would someday be a top recording artist who got her start by recording a song written by the boy sitting at my right! I'm referring, of course, to Julie London, Arthur Hamilton and Cry Me a River. An azure hue sets the mood featuring blues standards and two originals -Bouquet of Blues by Arthur Hamilton and Meaning of the Blues written by the producer of this effort, Bobby Troup. As for Julie, I can only say without getting completely carried away that she is achieving what all artists hold as a goal-the ability to create a mood. So well has Julie done this that some of the more commercial type vocalists have tried to imitate the "Julie London approach. Basin Street Blues. I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues. Nightingale Can Sing the Blues.
