Album of the Week 3-2-24

Afternoon folks!

It's a great week this week. Starting off, there's a compilation of later recordings by early Chicago bluesman Tampa Red. After that there's another compilation of some great r&b by piano player Joe Liggins and his band. Finishing off the blues category there's a half of a live album by B.B. King which I'll post the other half eventually after I do some more cleaning up of the disc. In a category of its own is an album by the Jimmy Castor Bunch which you'll probably recognize one of his big early 70's hits, "The Troglodyte Song," it's kind of an interesting album. In the blues-rock category there are albums by John Mayall and Canned Heat and finishing us up in the diversity category is a solo album by Rick Danko of The Band.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!

it's a great way to spend your spare time. i first just thought of it as a covid lockdown project, but it is way better than that. i really enjoy getting back in touch with music from a different part of my life.

have a good time digitizing and have a great weekend!

Hey Joe!

Awesome stack o'disks man! That Danko had a stellar lead guitar lineup of players... In Robbie Robertsons you can sure hear the Roy Buchanan influence in his solo... most excellent.

Love that Canned Heat. 'Time Was' rules. Smile A buddy called a few months ago, said I wouldn't believe what he had in his hand. He explained his ms had mailed away to a website for a scarce Canned Heat CD. He was holding the apology letter and a $20 refund check from Adolfo. I said 'de la Parra'? Yep... he said he wasn't going to cash it even if he had to reimburse the ms the $20. LOL

Thanks for the tunes!
