Rip Lee Pryor “You Gotta Move”
from Nobody But Me (Electro-Fi Records 2014) N —it's great to hear Rip Lee playing again after battling some major health issues. To say that he physically resembles his daddy, Snooky, would be an understatement.
Mat Wilson “How Long Before I Change My Clothes”
from Live at KDHX 03-July-2008 (KDHX 2008) L —Mat is one of my favorite local performers. His playing and singing styles are definitely his own; you know it's him the second you hear him.
Rick Estrin and the Nightcats “Someone, Somewhere”
from Twisted (Alligator 2009) —a pack porch number from Rick's 1st album as leader of the Nightcats (after Little Charlie had retired.) The band is playing the Old Rock House THIS Friday night!
Annie Mack “Revolution”
from Baptized in the Blues (Annie Mack Music 2013) —congratulation to my friend Annie and her husband, Paul, proud parents of a brand new baby boy! Hopefully we can get Annie to make a return trip to St. Louis in a few months.
Lloyd Glenn “Lloyd And Lloyd Boogie”
from Old Time Shuffle (Black And Blue 1974) —One Lloyd is Lloyd Glenn, and the other is Lloyd Grimes. Tiny Grimes. This disc was recorded in Paris in 1974, with Panama Francis on drums.
Little Walter “Sad Hours”
from The Essential Little Walter (UMG 1993) —Even after all these years, Little Walter remains far and away the KING of blues harmonica. That's testament to how ground-breaking his work was (and still is.)
ZZ Top “Apologies To Pearly”
from Rio Grande Mud (London Records 1972) —Whoo Wee this sounds good! Seeing as how these 2 cuts were designed to "run" together on the LP, we honored that here this morning.
Jarekus Singleton “Blame Game”
from Refuse To Lose (Alligator 2014) N —Juh-REE-kus is a hot property right now. He's getting lots of buzz among the jocks here at KDHX - this young man is the real deal, folks.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
