Corey Harris “Underground”
from Fulton Blues (Njumba 2013) —I saw recently where this album is being re-released, to include 2 additional tracks. It flew completely under the radar the 1st time around, being released on Corey's own label. Here's to more success for a pretty phenomenal piece of work.
Lee Oskar “In A Sentimental Mood”
from Mark Hummel's Blues Harmonica Blowouts Still Here And Gone 1993-2007 (Electro-fi 2008) —Lee Oskar has always had a pretty tone, and a fondness for jazzy stylings. The man has been extremely influential as far as harp players are concerned.
B.B. King “All You Ever Give Me Is the Blues”
from Here and There The Uncollected B.B. King (Universal Music 2001) —this nicely raw cut was previously unreleased in the U.S. prior to 2001. This and one other like it were from a session produced by Vernon Reid and Jon Tiven. It's as close to 1957 B.B. King as we've heard since, well, 1957! Tough stuff.
William DeVaughn “You Can Do It”
from Be Thankful For What You Got A Golden Classics Edition (Collectables 1993) —Washington D.C. native DeVaughn is most famous for his song "Be Thankful For What You Got". He reminds me of a soul version of Fenton Robinson, classy tunes.
