Rev. Lonnie Farris “Soldiers of the Cross”
from Slide Guitar Gospel (1944-1964) The Complete Recordings Of Rev. Utah Smith and Rev. Lonnie Farris In Chronological Order (Document Records 1993) —here is an example of the Hawai'ian guitar stylings of Rev Farris, recorded with his Gospel Flames in Los Angeles circa 1962.
Happyland Band “Just A Closer Walk With Thee”
from Saints Paradise: Trombone Shout Bands from the United House of Prayer (Smithsonian Folkways Recordings www.folkways.si.edu 1999) —a cd comprising the powerful trombone shout band music of the United House of Prayer for All People churches. There are 6 bands represented on this CD.
Horace Silver “Strange Vibes”
from In Pursuit Of The 27th Man (Capitol/Blue Note 2002) —originally recorded by Rudy Van Gelder in 1972, with Randy and Michael Brecker on horns, David Friedman on vibes, Bob Cranshaw on electric bass and Mickey Roker on drums. Oh, and Horace Silver with that beautiful piano. Rest In Peace, Mr. Silver.
Stomp Gordon “Ride Superman, Ride”
from Blues & Rhythm Series Classics: The Chronological - Stomp Gordon - 1952-1956 (Classics Blues & Rhythm Series 2007) —Archie Gordon, his recording career was short but noteworthy. His recording career was over by the time he was 30, and he died at 32. He was a singer, pianist and bandleader - but also a junkie...that didn't end well.
George Thorogood and the Destroyers “I'll Change My Style”
from George Thorogood and the Destroyers (Rounder 1977) —a weeper off of George's debut album with Rounder, all the way back to 1977. George is still out there performing, and his music had a huge impact on bringing me to the blues. It's no wonder I love liner notes to this day (digital downloads....ugh..)
Little Charlie And The Nightcats “I'll Take You Back”
from All The Way Crazy (Alligator 1987) —the Nightcats DEBUT with Alligator, from 1987. The band has been on Alligator Records ever since, and Rick Estrin & The Nightcats has a brand spankin' new live album set for release the 1st week of July.
