Sam Cooke with The Soul Stirrers “Lord Remember Me”
from Specialty Profiles: Sam Cooke With The Soul Stirrers (Specialty 1991) —recorded in 1957, but not released due to some issues with the tape. Still, the tune is well worth hearing - and it goes out to long time KDHX volunteer, Long Tall Frank.
Dorothy Love Coates and The Original Gospel Harmonettes “(You Can't Hurry God) He's Right On Time”
from The Best of Dorothy Love Coates and The Original Gospel Harmonettes (Specialty Records/Fantasy Inc. 1991)
Jimmy Rogers “Act Like You Love Me alternate”
from The Complete Chess Recordings (MCA 1997) —recorded in 1953 with Little Walter on harp. If you weren't aware, Jimmy was Muddy Waters' harp player until Little Walter came on board - and Muddy also came up a harp player. That's why Harmonica was always the heart of Muddy's bands.
Joe Louis Walker “I'm Gonna Walk Outside”
from Hornet's Nest (Alligator 2014) N —Walker was booked for a date in St. Louis a month or so ago, but the bus couldn't make it to town due to one of this winter's infamous ice storms. Joe Louis is a phenomenal live performer, so it was our loss for sure.
