Album of the Week - 3-25-23

Afternoon folks!

There's some cool stuff this week. Port Arthur bluesman, Phillip Walker leads off with an album, followed by Taj Mahal playing some fine acoustic blues. After that Doc Watson with Merle and some friends plays a bunch of fine bluegrass. Following that it's back to blues rock with The Flamin' Groovies, Roy Buchanan and Chicken Shack (featuring a fine, underrated guitarist Stan Webb and keyboard player Christine Perfect, later Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie). Some prog-rock follows that with Curved Air and we finish off rockin' with The Radiators.


Here 'tis:

Phillip Walker - Tough As I Want To Be

Taj Mahal - Oooh, So Good And Blues

Doc Watson - Doc And The Boys

The Flamin' Groovies - Teenage Head

Roy Buchanan - That's What I Am Here For

Chicken Shack - O.K. Ken?

Curved Air - Phantasmagoria

The Radiators - Zig Zaggin' Through Ghostland

they are robbing you of an hour's sleep, eh? the same jerks already did that here. they say it's because of the need for a longer day for agriculture, but that's a bunch of crap. agriculture here is performed by about 1% of the population, the rest of us don't need to get up early. Smile

having an exhibit in the museum, my Dear One and I made a trip to Port Arthur specifically to see the famous people exhibits that comprise the second floor of the Gulf Coast Museum. The main draw was Janis Joplin. The wonderful surprise was the sheer number of famous artists, athletes, and political figures from that city. And Phillip Walker had an exhibit, as well.
