Time zone: central
Harmonica Slim & Hosea Leavy “Cold Tacos and Warm Beer” (Fedora 2000) —I typically favor warm tacos and cold beer, but in this instance all is good. All is very good!
Raphael Wressnig & Alex Schultz “Tasty Dish”
from Soul Gift (ZYX Music 2012) —Wressnig is a talented, soulful Austrian B-3 player, and Schultz is a veteran of the West Coast blues scene, including stints with William Clarke and with Rod Piazza.
Bobby Blue Band “The Right Place At The Wrong Time”
from His California Album (MCA 1991) —originally recorded in 1973, this was Bland's 1st album for ABC-Dunhill, after years with Duke Records (ABC had purchased Duke.)
Robert Cray Band “GREAT BIG OLD HOUSE”
from Live At KDHX 14Sep2012 (KDHX 2012) —one of 4 songs recorded by Cray and his regular band for a pretty phenomenal session at KDHX's Magnolia studios in Sept 2012.
Gary Primich “Queen of Complication”
from Botheration (Black Top unk 1999) —Gary was a talented cat who left us way too early. His music remains quite influential among European blues bands.
Jarekus Singleton “Gonna Let Go”
from Refuse To Lose (Alligator 2014) N —Singleton is a rising star in the blues world, and at only 29 years old should be well on his way to a fruitful career. He's doing his own thing, folks - keep an ear and and eye out for him.
Howlin' Wolf “My Baby Stole Off”
from Howling Wolf Rides Again (Virgin 1991) —early Memphis recordings, which were sold to the Modern company rather than to Chess. The two companies were played against each other by Sam Phillips early on regarding the release of Howlin' Wolf's music.
Big Jeff Chapman “Food, Money or Love”
from Big Jeff's Blues Vol. 1 (Artist 2009) L —a fellow Eastsider, which is always a step in the right direction as far as Eastside Slim is concerned. Honestly, I just dig Jeff's singing; good stuff!
Paul Black “Factory Girl”
from King Dollar (House of Blues 1996) —I picked this disc up for a buck or so years ago, and it remains a favorite to this day. Westside Andy on guitar, Black on vocals and guitars.
Shemekia Copeland “Never Going Back to Memphis”
from Never Going Back (Telarc 2009) —Johnny Copeland's daughter. Her career has probably surpassed that of her father at this point. It's well earned, and Shemekia is just a great singer and vocalist. Nice stuff!
W.C. Clark “Are You Here, Are You There?”
from Lover's Plea (Black Top unk 1998) —an original Austin musician, W.C. was actually born there. He has been a mentor to generations of blues and soul artists in Austin. He's one of my favorite singers, period.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
