This remastered two-fer combines guitarist Mel Brown's second Impulse release from 1968, The Wizard, with Blues for We released the following year. The Wizard is a straight-ahead soul-jazz date picking up where Chicken Fat left off with a few originals alongside funky renditions of “Ode to Billie Joe” and Pee Wee Crayton’s R&B hit of the late '40s “Blues After Hours.” Blues for We relies more on an interesting selection of cover versions ranging from “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” and “Son of a Preacher Man” to the bubblegum staple by the 1910 Fruitgum Company “Indian Giver” and Acker Bilk’s “Stranger on the Shore,” which was the theme of a BBC television drama. Brown’s guitar work on both sessions is fluid and greasy, as are the funky drum licks, but occasionally, the arrangements drift into superior background music. New liner notes are absent, but the original packaging -- front and back cover art and liner notes -- remain intact. --- Al Campbell, AllMusic Review

Guitarist Mel Brown is hailed as "An Impulse! Discovery" on Chicken Fat, his debut for the label, and this album does feature a fantastic unique sound. Brown played in the bands of T-Bone Walker and John Lee Hooker, and has an aggressive (though not harsh) single-string picking style. For this date he is paired with either Herb Ellis or Arthur Wright on guitar, Gerald Wiggins on organ, and Brown's regular rhythm section of Paul Humphrey on drums and Ronald Brown on electric bass. There are a couple tracks that are played as pretty straight blues, but this is a hoppin' soul-jazz date. The tunes are bouncy and funky, and Brown's playing is a real treat. His bluesy, almost reckless soloing gives a vastly different flavor that the playing of guys like Grant Green or Melvin Sparks. Gerald Wiggins' organ playing is cool and swinging, and the electric bass of Ronald Brown makes this album about as funky as Impulse ever got. Both Herb Ellis and Arthur Wright get some solo space as well, with Ellis sounding quite interesting playing an unamplified 12-string on a couple cuts. Brown gets some nice tones as well, and on "Hobo Flats" plays "an electronic guitar with Wah-Wah distortion" (remember, this is 1967 jazz) "that gives a weird shimmering sound," according to the liner notes. Leave it to Impulse! to put a new spin on the guitar/organ sound. This is hot stuff. --- Sean Westergaard, Rovi

After several years of self-imposed exile, Mel Brown blazed back to the top of the blues world in 2000 with his Electro-Fi debut "Neck Bones & Caviar" (EFI #3363), and the album went on to win the coveted W.C. Handy "Blues Comeback Album of the Year" award. Now he's back in the saddle again with his super tight band in a series of dynamic live performances, pulling out all the stops. Brown showcases his lucid, emotion-packed solos, funky rhythm chops, and soulful baritone vocals. ---Editorial Review

The final album from the late blues guitar legend and W.C. Handy Award winner Mel Brown. Features previously unreleased tracks of Mel at his very best with his close friend the Chicago harp legend Snooky Pryor, fellow Mississippi mojo master Sam Myers (Anson Funderburgh & The Rockets), Miss Angel and his protege emerging guitar star Enrico Crivellaro. Also includes unreleased vintage tracks from his Bluesway/Impulse era heyday in the early 1970's with additional guitar solos recorded by Mel in 2009. The haunting and achingly beautiful original instrumental title track Love, Lost and Found on which Mel played guitar, piano and B-3 organ may be the pinnacle of his incredible career. ---Editorial Review
