Loot Rock Gang “Let Your Love Watch Over Me”
from Live at KDHX 12-18-13 Single (KDHX 2013) L —Live recordings made at KDHX in December of 2013, featuring Little Rachel and Mat Wilson teaming up on this great Lula Reed/Freddie King number. Keep an eye out for expanded live dates from The Loot Rock Gang in coming months.
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 artists. I just dig his musicial sensibilities, and his one-of-a-kind rhythmic sense. If you don't recognized the name, here's a little help - Mat is the guitar player with Rum Drum Ramblers.
John Mooney “Heaven Sittin' Down”
from Live at KDHX 8-19-10 (KDHX 2010) —Mooney's recording session was made the day of his concert performance at The Gramophone here in St. Louis. John laid down a tough solo set at the KDHX studios, and a great band performance later that evening (with KDXH's own Andy Coco playing bass.)
Johnnie Johnson “Son's Dream”
from BLUE HAND JOHNNIE (Evidence 1993) —Originally released on Pulsar Records (and on blue vinyl, too!) This cut is Johnnie, Gus Thornton, Kenny Rice and Tommy Maloney. Not bad at all, eh? Other St. Louis musicians perform on the other 11 tracks, including Oliver Sain and Herb Sadler.
Clara McDaniel “Subject: Men and Boys”
from Unwanted Child (HMG/Hightone 1997) L —I really dig Clara's delivery; I know I would NOT mess with her, it would be yes m'am and no m'am. Ha! This is all St. Louis, feat Johnnie Johnson, Arthur Williams, Erskine Oglesby, Tom Maloney, Gus Thornton, Kenny Rice and Charles Jones.
The Bottoms Up Blues Gang “Stop Tellin' Me What to Do”
from Handle It (The Bottoms Up Blues Gang 2010) L —The Bottoms Up Blues Gang will be celebrating their 13th anniversary this August. Honestly, I think they're working harder, sounding better, and having more fun than ever. Congrats to Kari Liston and Jeremy Segel-Moss - and to the rest of "The Gang".
