Ron Edwards “Write Me A Few Lines”
from na (KDHX 2014) L —From my private stock.... Ron Edwards and Fred Gumaer, performing live on "Nothin' But The Blues" during the 2013 Fall Membership Drive. Thanks Ron & Fred!
Matt Hill “Poor Circle (Acoustic Version)”
from On The Floor (Deep Fryed Records/VIZZTONE 2010) —this was Matt's break-out CD, with the majority of the cuts being engineered by Bob Margolin. Bob is a big supporter of young talent, a lesson learned from his days in Muddy Waters' band.
Paul Reddick “Villanelle” (NorthernBlues Music, Inc. 2004) —Paul is a poet, songwriter, harmonica player and singer out of Canada. He worked extensively with Colin Linden on this project.
Rev. Matt “Muddy River”
from Rev. Matt (self-released 2010) L —Matt is a fine acoustic guitar player and singer; count yourself as fortunate if you run into his gigs around the St. Louis area. I know I sure dig what he's doin'!
Jim Suhler “Texassippi”
from Panther Burn (Underworld Records 2014) N —this album features a little bit mellower side of Mr. Suhler, although there's still plenty of fire & brimstone on hand - wouldn't be Jim Suhler without it.
Otis Clay “That's How It Is”
from This Time Around (Bullseye 1998) —the album was produced in Memphis by Willie Mitchell, with guitarists Preston Shannon and Cash McCall along to help give it even more grease.
Kid Ramos “Gratitude Is Riches (And Complaint Is Poverty) featuring James Harman”
from Greasy Kid Stuff (evidence music 2001) —Kid and his old boss James Harman having a whooping good time. Harman will be playing several shows around St. Louis come mid-April.
Iceman Robinson “I've Never Been Loved” (Fedora Records 2001) —Never been loved...that's bad, you know. Riler "Iceman" Robinson, along with Frank Goldwasser (Paris Slim) and Willie Kent.
Nazareth “Shot Me Down”
from Expect No Mercy (Salvo 2010) —While I wasn't always crazy about their album covers, I sure did dig a lot of their tunes. Naz was always much more than just another hard rock band.
Cousin Harley “It's A Sin” (Little Pig Records 2010) —Cousin Harley is the rockin' alter-ego of Canadian Paul Pigat (who records blues and such under his real name.)
Clarence Gatemouth Brown “Just Lippin'”
from Pressure Cooker (Alligator Records 1985) —while later released by Alligator Records, the album was originally recorded in France for the Disques Black and Blue label in 1973. It's a French band behind him on this particular tune.
Leroy Jodie Pierson “Highway 61”
from Rusty Nail (nighthawk 1988) L —St. Louis' own blues master. He's also a noted historian of blues and reggae musics, and a mischievous story teller!
Jenni Muldaur “Just Ain't No Love”
from Dearest Darlin' (Dandelion Music 2009) —yep, Maria Muldaur's daughter (Geoff's, too!) This album features just about the last sessions recorded by Sean Costello, as he is the primary guitarist here.
