ROBERTWILKINS “That's No Way To Get Along”
from The Original Rolling Stone (Yazoo Records 1989) —this cd has been re-released, possibly per 2006. Robert became the Reverend Robert Wilkins, and his playing skills continued to hone themselves well into his 70s. He was one of the finest blues & gospel pickers, ever!
John Mooney “Heaven Sittin' Down”
from Live at KDHX 8-19-10 (KDHX 2010) —recorded live at the Magnolia studios...John played a show later that evening at The Gramophone, with KDHX's Andy Coco manning the bass guitar and Benet Schaeffer on drums - a fine show, too (I was lucky enough to have been there.).
Tennessee Ernie Ford “I Don't Know”
from The Best Of Tennessee Ernie Ford 16 Tons Of Boogie (Rhino 1990) —a cover of Willie Mabon tune, cut for Capitol Records in 1953.
Brother Woodman And Candy Rivers “Hi Ho Silver”
from Straight To Watts: The Central Avenue Scene 1951-54 Vol 1 (Ace 2003) —Something tells me this is NOT the typical Lone Ranger tale....
Paul Preston & His Orchestra “THE CHASE”
from Central Rocks! The Central Avenue Scene 1951-58, Vol. 2 (Ace Records 2005)
Frankie Lee Sims “Well Goodbye Baby”
from 4th & Beale And Further South The Ace Blues Masters Volume 2 (Westside Records 1998) —the cuts on this CD were originally recorded for Jackson, Mississippi's Ace Records label in the 1950s.
Mercy Baby “Marked Deck”
from 4th & Beale And Further South The Ace Blues Masters Volume 2 (Westside 1998) —Mercy Baby was singer/drummer James (Jimmy) Mullin
Buddy Flett “Nothin Easy”
from Rough Edges (Honeybee/ Fellowship Hall Sound 2013) N —this entire album is a "don't miss this" disc. Great stuff from Buddy, who has emerged from a near-deadly illness to become an artist to be reckoned with. In 2008, Shreveport slide guitarist Buddy Flett suffered a near-fatal bout of viral encephalitis t
Howlin' Wilf & The Vee-Jays “Wilf's Wobble”
from Cry Wilf! (Ace 2006) —This is James Hunter's early band, originally released on the Big Beat label in 1986. James' vocals were in a bit of an embryonic state at this time, but you could hear where he'd be going. This cut is mostly an instrumental and is good fun.
