Ted Hawkins “Strange Conversation”
from The Next Hundred Years (Geffen Records, Inc. 1994) —one of my favorite singers - such raw emotion. This tune also contains one of my favorite lyric lines, which says "...she said that your next lover's gonna be the blues, 'cause daddy, I'm gonna be gone..."
Eddie Floyd “Raise Your Hand”
from Chronicle: Greatest Hits (Fantasy unk 1990) —this tune was produced by Steve Cropper. Floyd is one of the Stax singers folks sometime seem to forget about, but KDHX won't forget - if you're listening to this show then I'm betting you won't forget Eddie Floyd, either.
Etta James And Eddie" Cleanhead' Vinson “Only Women Bleed”
from The Late Show (Fantasy unk 1987) —Who'd have thought an Alice Cooper tune would get played on Rhythm Highways? Alice co-composed this tune. Etta sang it during a 1986 live date at Marla's Memory Lane Supper Club in L.A., with a tough band - feat Red Holloway, Jack McDuff & Shuggie Otis.
Sugar Ray & the Bluetones “F. Lee Bailey Blues”
from Don't Stand in My Way (Bullseye Blues 1991) —there's not too many tunes out there titled after lawyers, right?! Sugar Ray and his Bluetones are scheduled to play BB's Tuesday, July 15th. This is a don't-miss show for fans of blues singers and blues harp players, and of great ensemble bands!
Robin Rogers “Second Time Around”
from Back In the Fire (blind pig www.rounder.com 2010) —Robin was starting to make very real waves in the blues and roots World, but a chronic illness came roaring back and took her from us not too long after this album was released. Robin was a great singer and a pretty harp player, too.
