Les Enfoirés: La Crise de Nerfs ! marks the 19th annual album release by Les Enfoirés, an all-star group of French celebrities who come together each year in the name of charity. Among the many celebrities who make guest appearances on Les Enfoirés, most notable are contemporary pop superstars Grégoire, Christophe Maé, Bénabar, Amel Bent, Renan Luce, Patricia Kaas, Mylène Farmer and Christophe Willem. While there's nothing exceptional about Les Enfoirés, it's another well-produced entry in the long-running and increasingly routine Les Enfoirés series that should please fans of previous volumes.
The 40 tracks compiled on this two-disc set represent the entire span of pianist and singer Leroy Carr's recording career that spanned a brief seven years, from 1928-1935. The material represented here – all but one of these tracks were recorded for the Vocalion label – features accompaniment by guitarist Scrapper Blackwell on all but one selection, and Josh White on a handful as well. Carr's material here ranges from the classic piano blues of the era that spawned Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith to vaudeville and hokum tunes made popular by artists like Tampa Red and Georgia Tom. Carr's voice is the haunting thing here; it's higher and very clear, sweet almost, as evidenced by most of these sides. But there was an edge, too; one that belied a kind of pathos underneath even the most cheery material – check "Mean Mistreater Blues" or "Bread Baker." But the darker material such as "Suicide Blues" (one of six previously unissued performances), "Straight Alky Blues," or "Shinin' Pistol," is strange and eerie given Carr's smooth approach. Carr may not be the most well-known bluesman of the era, but his contribution is profound and lasting. This collection puts to shame almost all others with the exception of the multi-volume complete recordings on Document.
