Time zone: central


John Mooney “If You Love Me”
from All I Want Single (Blind Pig Records 2002) —John covering a Ted Hawkins tune right here, nothin' much besides dobro & percussion and sounding oh-so-nice!


Duke Robillard “Hard Road”
from Living With the Blues (stonyplain url 2002) —this is a Tampa Red tune, and also marked the 1st time Robillard released a solo-acoustic tune on one of his albums.


Stevie Ray Vaughan “Life By The Drop”
from The Sky Is Crying (Epic 1991) R  —SRV playing 12 string acoustic, on a tune co-written by Doyle Bramhall, a tune written with SRV in mind...addictions.


Mahalia Jackson “It Don't Cost Very Much”
from The Essential Mahalia Jackson (Sony 2004) —a request partially filled - I got the artist, but didn't have the song. I hope this did the trick!


Sensational Nightingales “At The Meeting”
from It's Gonna Rain Again (MCA 1972) —1970's recordings featuring Charles Johnson on lead vocals.


The Gospel Hummingbirds “Time Is Winding Up”
from Taking Flight (blind pig www.rounder.com 1995) —this tune was written by Hummingbird Roy Thomas. Listening to those harmonies gave me goosebumps!


Robert Pete Williams “On My Way From Texas”
from The Great Blues Men (Vanguard www.vanguardrecords.com 1988) —a live recording from 1964, featuring the one of a kind bluesman Robert Pete Williams. At times Robert Pete reminds me of Louisiana Red, with much off the cuff lyrics and an idiosyncratic playing style.


Izzy And Chris “Gotta Find My Baby”
from Preachin' the Blues...Vol 1 (80-20 Music Entertainment 2008) —Israel Stetar and Chris Nacy. They work the Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland & Virginia areas.


Nathan James “Ain't This A Comeback”
from This Road Is Mine (Pacific Blues 2004) —a tune written by Icepick James Harman, who is also having a little fun singing along right here. Nathan has been Harman's go-to guitar player for most of a decade, now.


Johnny Jones and The King Casuals “Chip Off The Old Block”
from Brunswick Lost Soul - Volume 1 (Brunswick 2011) —Johnny Jones, out of Nashville, TN


Mosaic Tweed “Coming Home”
from The Soul Of Capitol Records Rare And Well Done Volume 1 (CAPITOL 2011) —originally released as a single in 1969


William Bell “It's Happening All Over”
from The Soul of a Bell (stax 1967) —one of Stax Records earliest artists, and almost more a Motown style guy than Stax.


Ruby Johnson “What More Can a Woman Do (Take 3)”
from I'll Run Your Hurt Away (Fantasy 1993) —how's this for a backing band - Isaac Hayes, Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn, Al Jackson Jr and the Mar-Key Horns !


Johnny Copeland “Everybody Wants A Piece Of Me”
from Texas Twister (Rounder www.rounder.com 1986) —this song was initially released on "Clyde's" debut Rounder album, Copeland Special.


Steve Bailey “Junior B's Boogie”
from Northwest Harmonica Showcase (Bluestown Records 1997) —if you're a fan of blues harp, this album is worth searching for. There are many fine performances on here.


Sonny Terry “Roll Me Baby”
from Whoopin (Alligator 1984) —Sonny Terry whoopin' it with Johnny Winter and Willie Dixon.


Felix y Los Gatos “Sha La La”
from Green Chili Gumbo (self 2010) —a fine band out of New Mexico, they take all the roots styles and make a tasty gumbo out of 'em. Delicious!


Los FabuLocos “She Wakes Up Cryin'”
from Dos (feat. Kid Ramos) (Delta Groove Music Inc. 2010) —Kid Ramos is the guitar player for the band, and the word is he's been given the "all clear" after a intensive year long battle with debilitating cancer treatments. Watch for him to resume his work with The Mannish Boys, also.


Contino “Rotgut Run”
from Back Porch Dogma (BLIND PIGRECORDS 2012) —led by Pete Contino and Al Ek. This band is hard to categorize, but I bet they're a lot of fun live.


Elmore James “Long Tall Woman”
from Let's Cut It The Very Best Of Elmore James (Virgin 1991) —these cuts are from Elmore's Flair/Meteor Records days, from the mid to late 1950s. Flair/Meteor and other labels were run by the Bihari brothers.


Big Mike Aguirre and the Blu-City All-Stars “You Don't Love Me”
from na (NA url 2014) N L —a preview of Big Mike's upcoming album, the band tackles an Ike Turner tune right here.


Otis Rush “She's A Good 'Un”
from Ain't Enough Comin' In (Mercury 1994) —Otis Rush, a fine guitarist and a gifted singer - you can recognize Otis' voice immediately, and that's a good thing.


Lee Fields And The Expressions featuring Lady “Money Is The King”
from Live At KDHX 27March2013 (KDHX 2013) —Lee Fields is correct - KDHX is where it's at! From a live date at the Magnolia Street studios in March 2013.
