Earl King and Roomful Of Blues “Don't Leave Me Here to Cry”
from Glazed (Hep Cat 2009) —Glazed was originally released in 1986, at which point Earl King had recorded in almost a decade. "Don't Leave Me Here..." is a bonus cut to the re-released version of Glazed, featuring Curtis Salgado on vocals (he was Roomful's vocalist/harp man)
Chicken Shack featuring Luther Snake Johnson “Remember Me featuring George "Mojo" Buford”
from Remember Me (Muse 1974) —recorded during a couple sessions in 1967, featuring Muddy Waters' band of the time...this is Luther "Georgia Boy" or "Snake" Johnson...there's at least 3 Luther Johnson's out there!
Bobby Rush “It's Alright”
from More Miles Than Money The Soundtrack To Garth Cartwright's Book (Ace 2010) —Bobby Rush from 1974 on Jewel Records
Buddy Flett “Third House on the Left”
from Rough Edges (Honeybee/ Fellowship Hall Sound 2013) N —hoo boy..this is the good stuff...new music from the "risen" Buddy Flett. Buddy had a near-death experience due to viral encepalitis, but has miraculously come back better than ever (after having to relearn how to walk, talk, play - everything)
Dorothy Moore “Misty Blue”
from From Where I Stand The Black Experience In Country Music (Warner Brothers 1998) R —per request...from Mr. Michael to Miss Joyce...aw, isn't that sweet (this has been a Casey Kasem dedication moment) Misty Blue was released in 1976 on Malaco, and was written by Bob Montgomery.
Matt Guitar Murphy “Headin' Northwest”
from Lucky Charm (Roesch Records 2000) —any conversation about the finest blues guitars of the 1950s and 1960s should probably begin, and end, with Matt "Guitar" Murphy. He is the only guitarist that Memphis Slim WANTED to work with (he tended to dislike guitarists very much).
Otis Spann “Must Have Been The Devil”
from The Blues Never Die! (Fantasy www.concordmusicgroup.com/labels/fantasy 1990) —this disc features Otis in front of Muddy Waters' band, with Waters' himself billed as "Dirty Rivers" for contractual reasons. James Cotton is essentially co-featured on this album.
Milton Hopkins and Jewel Brown “Evening Breeze”
from Milton Hopkins and Jewel Brown (Dialtone 2012) —this is a tasty instrumental putting the focus firmly on Milton Hopkins' guitar talents. What a tastful player! He was an in-demand session and tour player from the mid-50s thru the 70s, spending 9 years with B.B. King's band in the 70s.
