Johnny Young “Keep Your Nose Out Of My Business”
from Chicago Blues with Otis Spann, James Cotton Big Walter, Etc. (Arhoolie 1990) —the recordings on this cd were originally made in 1966 & 1967. Johnny had a fine, warm voice, and was a heckuva guitar player as well as a master mandolin player.
The Racky Thomas Band “These Lowdown Blues”
from Last of the Big Spenders (RT Records 1999) —Racky is one of those outstanding artists working regionally, who hasn't been able to break out to a larger audience. He's from the Boston area, and plays harp and guitar in addition to singing and songwriting.
Slick Ballinger “Mississippi Soul”
from Slick Ballinger Presents Mississippi Soul (Oh Boy Records 2006) —Daniel "Slick" Ballinger skyrocketed to blues fame at a young age, then gave it up to join the church. Not an uncommon story in blues history, eh? (Reminiscent of Rev. Robert Wilkins) Daniel has released at least 1 "gospel" cd under his given name of Da
Patrick Sweany “Corner Closet”
from That Old Southern Drag (Nine Mile Records www.ninemilerecords.com 2011) —Sweany is unabashadley one of my favorite artists; I consider him a 4-hour artist, meaning it's worth a 4-hour drive to catch one of his shows (especially if he has his own band with him!)
